You walk up to the lecture hall for your first class of the day. Another Monday going into your quantum physics course. You do enjoy theoretical physics but oh my goodness it is always rough at 8 am on a Monday. While rubbing your eyes to try and wake up, you ponder what you should do next.
[[Walk back to your dorm]]
[[Forge on and walk into class]]
You feel a weight come off your shoulders. No having to fight through your brain fog to try and understand your professor teaching at light speed far too early in the morning. You walk back to your dorm across campus, soaking up the sunshine and admiring the pretty leaves. You know the fall beauty does not have much time left as a strong storm is set to hit your college town on Friday. You make it back to your dorm, toss your backpack down by your cluttered desk, and flop down on your bed. You only left your dorm for half an hour but my goodness you could sleep for a whole day.
As you start to doze off you feel your phone buzz in your pocket. Crap, did your professor already notice you were gone? Slightly panicked, you pull out your phone and sit up straight to see it is a text from your friend Madeline. You let out a sight of relief and figure it's just her asking where you are since you skipped class. Suprisingly, though, it is instead a long text. She says "I CANNOT BELIEVE YOU SKIPPED CLASS TODAY KAYLA! I know it sounds like total bs and you will probably send me the emoji with its eyes rolling but believe me when I say that I got to go back in time and attend one of Beetoven's performances! Yeah I've heard his music before when my grandparents have played it when we are going around to our favorite antique stores but my god that man can play some bars! I know people always think classical music is boring and as fun as plain oatmeal but I think I am going to start appreciating it more now!"
In shock you flop on your back and let your phone fall to the side.
Wow, I guess I should have gone to class.
(text-colour:purple)[THE END]Fighting through the desire to run back to your dorm and hide from your responsibilities, you walk into the lecture hall. You sit down in the third row next to your friend Madeline. After exchanging some small talk about your weekends you pull out your laptop to take notes and see it is 7:58 am. Class will be starting soon.
Sure enough, your professor walks in with a smile on his face. You think to yourself "that's odd, the only thing Doctor Goodwin smiles about is students correctly calculating the speed of electrons in water molecules." You shake it off and leave it up to your fogginess from waking up at the crack of dawn. Your professor reaches the front of the room and starts ruffling through his bag. This doesn't surprise you as Doctor Goodwin isn't exactly on the level of Marie Kondo with his organization. After fumbling around for a minute he pulls out a black cube that takes up the palm of his hand. You think "wow, I guess computers really can be that tiny!" After whispering to Madeline to investigate what the heck he has and her having no good answer, Doctor Goodwin starts speaking into the microphone at the front of the class.
"Good morning class! Today's lecture is going to be a bit different as you all are going to get to test out this amazing little piece of technology that me and my lab created. Before you start asking questions about the exam next week just know that once I let you in on what this is you are going to forget about that exam. To get on with it, this is a time machine. No, not like the phone booth from Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure or that outlandish hot tub from that one movie. Instead, it is a pocket-sized time machine that all of you could have one day if the government approves it for mass production. Enough of me talking, who wants to try it?"
You and Madeline look at each other with wide eyes, thinking "is this man serious?" and "okay, which grad student put LSD in his coffee this morning?"
Before you can continue thinking he says "the first student to try it will get 50 points of extra credit for this course." This has been a long semester for you and you really could use the GPA boost. But, you have no idea what Doctor Goodwin's newest creation could have in store for you.
[[Sit back and let someone else be the guinea pig]]
[[Raise your hand and volunteer]]You sit back in your seat and see Brandon in the front row tentatively raise his hand. A smile spreads across Doctor Goodwin's face as he says "yes, our first volunteer! Come up to the front of the class!"
With a slight grimace on his face, Brandon makes his way up to the front of the class and stands a few feet from Doctor Goodwin. Doctor Goodwin sets the time machine contraption down on the podium and turns to Brandon and says "thank you for your bravery, the whole science community commends you for your service. So, how this works is I am going to program this device to either send you to either a time in the past or a time in the future. You can pick either one, it makes no difference to me. Don't worry, I have already created a list of safe times for you to travel to so one of those will be randomly chosen for you once you decide if you want to venture into the past or future. So, what will it be?"
You see Brandon fidget with his hands and ponder his decision. After a few moments, Brandon says "I'll go to the future, I guess" with an unconfident tone.
"Okay sounds good! I'll start this up and we can get going!" says Doctor Goodwin.
You and Madeline exchange shocked looks, not being able to believe what is going on in front of you. After a few moments of pressing buttons on the machine, Doctor Goodwin speaks again. "Okay Brandon, we are ready to go. This will be painless but you will be sent to the future and will get to spend 10 minutes there. To us you will just be gone for a few seconds, but for you it will feel like longer. I'm going to count down from 3 and you will be sent off. Are you ready?" Doctor Goodwin says.
"Uh, I'm as ready as I can be" Brandon says with a worried laugh.
"Okay, here we go. 3...2...1..." says Doctor Goodwin pressing a big button on the top of the cube when he hits one. The whole class gasps as Brandon suddenly blinks away.
You and Madeline both whisper "what the heck?" and exchange concerned looks with your other classmates. Suddenly your attention snaps back to the front of the room. Brandon is back and he has a big smile on his face. He turns to Doctor Goodwin and says "oh my gosh, I just got to go into the coolest building! It was 300 stories tall and had these awesome elevators that sped you up and down at like the speed of light! Wow, that was literally the coolest thing I've ever experienced!"
"I'm so happy you liked it, Brandon. I'd love to talk about your experience in more depth but I want to give one more person the chance to use it" says Doctor Goodwin. "So, who will it be?"
[[Raise your hand]]
[[Sit back and let someone else go up]]"Yes, Kayla, come up front" says Doctor Goodwin.
You slowly stand up while Madeline looks at you with open shock, unable to believe what you are doing. You give her a tight smile and make your way up to the front of the room.
"Oh crap, what the heck am I doing?!? Well, at least I'll get that extra credit which will help me not have to study so hard for the final" you think. You slowly walk to the front of the lecture hall, feeling all the eyes of your classmates following your every move. You finally make it up to the front of the classroom and stand facing Doctor Goodwin.
"Ah, yes, thank you for volunteering, Kayla. I am going to get my machine set up and explain to you how it works. Basically, I'm going to program this device based on your choice to either send you to the past or the future. Either option works and it makes no difference to me what you pick. I have already created a list of safe times for you to travel to so you will not be put in harms way. Okay, so what will it be? The future or the past?"
You twist your hands together, your thoughts going at the speed of light. "Umm, what am I supposed to pick? The past is so rich and interesting but the future is unwritten and maybe I could get my hands on some fancy technology. I have to make a choice either way so before Doctor Goodwinn starts tapping his foot I guess I have to make a decision" you think to yourself.
[[Go to the past]]
[[Go to the future]]You stick your hand up in the air, not being able to believe what you are doing.
"Omg did you just raise your hand?" Madeline asks you in a frantic tone.
"Um, yeah...I guess so" you say, not really believing what's going on around you.
"Thank you Kayla for volunteering! You can come up now" says Doctor Goodwin. You slowly make your way to the front of the room, your shoulders a bit tight with anxiety.
"Kayla, you are going to totally love this! I was about to pee my pants from fright but now I'm like so glad I did this!" says Brandon as he passes you on the way back to his seat.
"Thank you for the encouragement, Brandon" you say with a slight grimace. You think to yourself "well, it seems like he had one heck of a time so everything should go over smoothly, right?" You take a deep breath and let it out once you reach the front of the classroom.
"Ah, yes. Summarizing what I previously said to Brandon, I can program this machine to send you to the future or past. Times in either direction are randomly selected from a list of safe times to go back to. So, which way do you desire to go?" says Doctor Goodwin with a quizical look on his face.
You stare down at your feet, weighing the two decisions. The past is so cool and it would help boost your grade in your world history class but wow you could find some amazing scientific technology in the future. After a few moments of pondering the decision you come to a conclusion. "Okay Doctor Goodwin, I've made a decision. I want to go to..."
[[The future]]You decide that today is simply not the day to go messing around with quantum time travel. Also, who knows what that machine is really capable of? As you settle into your seat you are shocked to see Madeline raise her hand. "Oh my gosh, are you serious?" you say to Madeline with a shocked face.
"Well, why not? I mean, I do have a history minor so I would be wasting this opportunity to not get some great content for my final paper" she says.
You nod at Madeline with understanding. Another day you would have thought about doing the same but today you have not had enough caffeine. You give Madeline as confident of a smile as you can as Doctor Goodwin talks to her. "Thank you, Madeline. You definitely made the right decision to do this. So, like I said to Brandon, you can chose to either go to the past or the future. All the times you can get sent to have been predetermined so there is no risk involved. So, which one do you want to pick?"
You see Madeline look up at the ceiling deep in thought. "Okay, after some quick thinking, I'll go to the past" she says.
"Good, good. As I explained, you'll be in the past for 10 mintutes but to us you will just be gone a few seconds. Are you ready?" asks Doctor Goodwin.
"Um, ready as I'll ever be!" says Madeline with a shaky laugh.
You see Doctor Goodwin press some buttons on the machine then nod and stand back. "Okay, I'll count down and then you will go. 3...2...1!" says Doctor Goodwin and Madeline blips out of view when he says 1 and presses the big button on top of the machine.
Still not being able to believe what you're witnessing you gasp to yourself and keep your eyes fixed at the front of the room where Madeline was. Sure enough, after a few long seconds Madeline pops back to where she was with a big smile on her face.
"Oh my gosh, that was so so so cool!" she says as she turns to Doctor Goodwin.
"I'm glad you liked it, Madeline. This device really is the future of science" Doctor Goodwin says with a smile on his face.
Madeline makes eye contact with you and rushes back to sit next to you. "Oh my gosh Kayla you will never believe the awesomeness I just got to witness! Okay, so I know it sounds like a little crazy but I swear I got to attend part of one of Albert Einstein's lectures! I know, pretty cool since he was into physics too. Oooh, maybe I can get some extra credit for this class! Oh, sorry, back to the topic. It was really interesting as he was talking about how gas giant planets factor into the theory of relativity! I can teach you anything you want to know from it, just let me know" says Madeline with a wide smile across her face.
"I'm so so so happy you got to go back and learn from someone as awesome as Einsten! And I hope you get some extra credit, too" you say with a laugh. "I can't wait to break down every detail later" you say as Doctor Goodwin shushes the class.
"Well, that is all the time travel we can do today, students. Don't forget about our exam next week and I look forward to all your emails begging me to let you use my creation. Thank you for your attendance and you are all free to go" says Doctor Goodwin, turning to start packing up his bag. Like you expected, only a handful of students leave the lecture hall and the rest of you go up to the front of the room to find out how exactly your professor created this amazing invention.
(text-colour:purple)THE END"I'll go to the past" you say to Doctor Goodwin.
"Sounds good. I am going to get the machine ready and you will be on your way to the past" Doctor Goodwin says as he works with the device in front of him. After a few moments he stands back and looks at you. "The machine is calibrated to send you to the past. I am going to count down from 3 and then you will be on your way to the past" says Doctor Goodwin.
You close your eyes when he says one and you are suddenly surrounded by a blue flash of light. After a moment the light disapears and you feel crisp air and the sound of people speaking around you.
[[Open up your eyes]]"I'll go to the future" you say with a nod.
"Good, good. I am going to get the machine calibrated and you will be on your way" Doctor Goodwin says as he presses buttons on the sleek device in front of him. After a few moments he stands back and looks at you. "The machine is all set to send you to the future. You will get to spend 10 minutes there but for us you will just be gone for a few seconds. I am going to count down from 3 and then you will be on your way to the future" says Doctor Goodwin.
You close your eyes when he hits one and you are suddenly surrounded by a white flash of light. After a moment the light disapears and you feel daylight around you.
[[Open your eyes]]"I want to go to the future" you state to Doctor Goodwin.
"I see you are following in Brandon's footsteps. The future is spectacular so your choice is well decided. I just need a few moments to callibrate this device and then it will be ready to go" Doctor Goodwin says as he presses buttons on the sleek device on the podium in front of him. After a few moments Doctor Goodwin steps back and says "the machine is callibrated and ready. I will count down from 3 and then you will be on your way to the future.
You close your eyes when he hits one and you are suddenly surrounded by a white flash of light. After a moment, the light disapears and you feel warm air and bright sunlight around you.
[[Open your eyes and look around]]"I want to go to the past" you state to Doctor Goodwin.
"Sounds like a plan, Maya. I just need a few moments to callibrate this machine and then it will be ready to go" says Doctor Goodwin. After a minute Doctor Goodwin turns to you and says "Okay, the machine is calibrated and ready to send you to the past. I will count down from 3 and then you will be on your way."
You close your eyes when he says one and you are suddenly surrounded by a blue flash of light. After a moment, the light disapears and you feel a warm dry air around you.
[[Open your eyes to see where you are]]When you open your eyes you are the first in a line of people in front of a tall mirrored building. Blinking as you adjust to your surroundings, you are greeted by a woman in a sharp silver blazer with a compact tablet in her hands. "Hello, are you here for the immersive virtual reality experience?" she says with a friendly smile.
"Umm, uh, yes, yes I am" you stammer out.
"Perfect, I just need to you sign here and the biometric scan will take care of getting the rest" the woman says as she hands you the tablet.
"Uh, yeah, sounds good!" you say still trying to shake off the confusion you feel from suddenly being thrust into the future. As you take the tablet you see a simple screen that explains the virtual reality experience with a line on the bottom to sign on. "This virtual reality experience will simulate you walking on the surface of the exoplanet Titon in the Andromeda Galaxy. This gorgeous planet's surface is made up of exposed crystals because of the intense pressure on the planet and the intense winds have worn away the debris that once covered them." After reading this you are definitely interested so you sign your name on the line with your finger and hand the tablet back to the woman.
"You are all set, follow me to your room for the VR experience" the woman says as she taps on the tablet in front of her. She motions for you to follow her and you walk in through an automatically opening door into the reflective building. You see a long line of doors with navy blue numbers on silvers plates next to them, looking like some of the hotels you've stayed at previously. You follow the woman down the hallway and reach room 70 after a few moments. "You can go into this room that has been set up for you and after a brief scan the VR experience will begin" the woman says with a smile.
"Thank you very much, I'm super excited to try it!" you say to her as you turn the silver knob and enter the room. The lights automatically dim when you close the door and a bright green light comes out of the sleek black wall in front of you and scans you. After a moment, the lights turn completely off and you are suddenly seeing the planet Titon all around you. You look up to see a cloudly sky is above you with slivers of golden light making their way through the clouds. When you look around you are amazed to see there are crystals of all colors surrounding you in a half-open cave. You feel like you are in a museum as you are standing on the most stunning dark green crystals that are sparkling in the sunlight and the walls around you are covered in light pink crystals. You start to walk and feel the floor beneath you also move like you are on a 360 degree treadmill. As you set out of the cave you suddenly are met with the sound and feeling of wind against your body. As the wind whistles in your ears you make your way towards a collecton of orange crystals a few feet away from you. Once you reach them you kneel down to take a closer look and notice each of them are a slightly different color, ranging from the color of a dark leaf to that of a ripe clementine. You reach your hand out and are suprised when you feel the cold, smooth feeling of the crystals beneath your fingers. "Wow, this VR is amazing! How the heck did they develop all of this?" you think to yourself in awe.
As you stand up to continue exploring the area you are suddenly met with a white flash of light that surrounds you and you close your eyes to protect them. After a few moments the light disapears and you realize you are back in the lecture hall.
[[Open your eyes and talk to Doctor Goodwin]]When you open your eyes you see you are surrounded by a crowd of people yelling and cheering. "Okay, this must be something big and exciting. But when and where exactly did I get sent?" you think to yourself. You hear people speaking loudly around you in some sort of foreign language that seems somewhat familiar but you can't quite place what it is.
As the people keep cheering and moving around you suddenly spot a slightly torn newspaper on the group. You step closer to inspect it but don't try and pick it up due to fear of your fingers being stepped on. In big block letters across the top of the paper you read "A Day In History: The Berlin Wall Falls Down." You don't speak German so you are thankful the paper is suprisingly writen in English. You scan the paper and read that it is dated November 9th, 1989. "Wow, Doctor Goodwin really did pick some awesome times for us to go to!" you think to yourself.
Moving your attention up from the paper you look around and spot the wall around 20 feet away from you covered in colorful graffiti. Luckily you still remember the week you discussed the impact of the Berlin Wall in your modern world course and realize you must have ended up in West Berlin. There is a crowd of individuals using hammers and rocks to break away at the wall and you hear them shouting and laughing as they chip away at the wall. You of course have seen pictures before of how the Berlin Wall looked but you never realized just how tall and long it really was. You start trying to move through the crowd to get closer. You hear German conversations around you in elated voices and it takes you a few minutes of pushing through the crowd to get close enough to the wall to get a decent view. You hear the sound of metal breaking concrete and see that a hole in the wall has begun to form.
You spot a family together a few feet away from you all huddled together. The youngest daughter is holding onto her mother's arm and the older daughter and her brother are on either side of their dad. They look deep in conversation, bouncing on their heels as they look forward at the wall in front of them. You turn away from the family as you hear a loud cracking sound go through the air and you see a large chunk of the wall crumble down. The whole crowd goes wild with cheers and you look to see the family rush to the newly created hole in the wall. You get pushed towards the wall by the excited crowd and you see a group of people come in from the other side of the wall. The family runs up to an older man and woman and they all hug while crying tears of happiness. While you may not know their specific story, you know they have probably been waiting a long time to be able to see each other again.
You turn away from the reunited family with a smile on your face and look up at the wall, trying to soak in this once in a lifetime experience. As you take a step closer to the wall you are suddenly surrounded by a bright blue light that envelops you. You shield your eyes from the brightness and after a few moments the brightness goes away and you realize you must be back in the lecture hall.
[[Uncover your eyes]]When you open your eyes you see a body of water in front of you with sparse pieces of land sticking up. On these slivers of land you see bright green palm trees, flowers, and other gorgerous plants. You think to yourself "okay, I must be someplace tropical. But where the heck it this?"
To investigate, you turn to your right and see there is a wooden bridge above the water that connects a collection of these little islands. You make your way across the footbridge admiring the warm sun on your back and the humid air that makes you feel relaxed. As you make your way across the path you see an older couple sitting on a wooden bench. They are holding a sleek tablet that is playing some relaxing tropical music and are talking together with smiles on each of their faces. You stop to admire the view and listen to what they are talking about.
"I still remember the days when this all wasn't under water. I miss the beachhouse my mother used to have where me and my brothers would run across the white sand every morning to dive into the waves. The seagulls would caw above us as we searched the beach competing to see who could find the biggest shell. Max was always the one to find the biggest of the shells, I still don't know how he did it" the older woman says with a chuckle. "That feels like forever ago and it hurts my heart knowing I can never go back to that house again. Peter, I really miss how beautiful things used to be" the woman says to the older man with a sad voice.
Wanting to not intrude too much you continue walking down the wooden path. As the voices of the older couple fades into the background you see a rectangular sign connected to the wooden railing about 10 feet in front of you. You near the sign and shield you eyes to read the text on the sign. "Once Florida, this state has been covered by the ocean. After 2030 the United Nations concluded climate change had progressed to greatly to be reversed. By 2045, 80% of Florida was underwater due to the majority of the state being at sea level. We still have places such as this Clearwater Park today thanks to the islands that still peak above the water. The little bit of land we still have serves as a reminder of world we once had."
You stand back and look out at the view in front of you, contemplating what you just read. You've learned in your classes about the dangers of climate change but you never thought too deeply about how severe the reality of it could be. You frown when you realize your cousin Margot just moved to Tampa with her family and realize the gorgeous home she and her wife just bought will be underwater in the matter of a few decades. The small islands in front of you are beautiful but nothing like the white sand beaches Margot sends you pictures of. As you continue walking down the path you are suddenly surrounded by a white flash of light and close your eyes to protect yourself. After a few seconds the light fades away and you realize you are back in the lecture hall.
[[Open your eyes and speak to Doctor Goodwin]]You open your eyes and see desert surrounding you. The warm air flows around you and you feel the soft sand beneath your shoes. You turn to your right and notice a large bump in the sand. You walk forward and try to climb up this mound of sand but stop when you realize the sand is just slipping out beneath your feet. "Wow, I never realized how slippery sand can be" you think to yourself with a chuckle.
You decide to bypass this obstace by walking to the left until you reach the edge of it. When you peak your head around the corner you are surprised to see a group of about 20 people all gathered around what looks like a fountain of sorts. Beyond the fountain there looks to be a small village made of what looks like sandstone buildings. A few people are walking between the buildings and talking. One of the people is leading what looks like a camel down the sandy street between the buildings. The camel has a harness on that looks like it's made of some sort of pale green vine and has a cloth across its back with a bright red and brown pattern. Amazed by this sight that seems unlike anything you've ever seen in photos of various places in the desert, you move forward to investigate the village in front of your further.
As you near the village, the people at the fountain turn to you with surprised faces. You don't understand what they are saying to each other as it is in a language you don't know but the people in front of you are speaking to each other in a tone of confusion. After a few moments of questioning speech between them the crowd seems to come to a decision and turns back to look at you. A middle aged man stands up from his spot on the sand and reaches out a bright orange clay cup of sorts to you. Realizing he must be inviting you to drink from the fountain you accept the cup with a smile and nod at him. He gestures towards the fountain and you dip the mug into the bright, clear water to get some out. Your fingers touch the water as you dip the cup in and are surprised when you feel a cold sensation against your fingertips. "How are they keeping this water cold in the harsh heat of the desert? And how the heck have I never read about anything like this before?" you think to yourself.
You bring the cup up to your mouth and take a sip. Crisp, refreshing water flows into your mouth. Yeah you've had fancy water before at the conference events your college holds but you've never tasted water this delightful. You savor the water as you drink it for a minute and hand the mug back to the man when you are finished. You give him a smile as a thanks and he smiles back at you. He motions for a young woman a few feet away to get up and he sits back down where he was before.
The young woman gets up and motions for you to follow her towards the village. You walk with her to the first building on the street and look inside to discover it is some sort of artist's studio. There are bright fabrics lining the wall and an easel made of some sort of hard looking clay with a cloth draped across it and a half-finished mural on the wall. You take a step closer to the doorway and realize the mural is a group painting of all the people in the town. You scan the half-finished painting and see the face of the man who gave you the cup in the upper right hand corner and what looks like the partially painted face of the young woman next to you in the bottom middle of the painting. You smile to yourself realizing you have no idea where you are but loving this community you have gotten to briefly learn about.
While you are scanning the painting to figure out who the other people are you are suddenly surrounded by a bright blue light. You quickly shut your eyes to protect them from the brightness and keep them closed tight until the bright light fades away. The light fades and you realize you must be back in the lecture hall.
[[Open your eyes to look around]]You open your eyes and see Doctor Goodwin standing in front of you. "Oh my gosh, that was like the most amazing thing I have ever gotten to do! I've done VR stuff before with my mom's Oculus but wow it is so much more crazy when it feels that real! Also, now I want to travel through space to experience that amazingness in real life" you say with a smile.
"I'm glad you enjoyed it, Kayla. I can't wait for more people to get to have experiences like yours in the future. As much as I would like to continue learning about your experience, I do want to give one more of your fellow peers the chance to get to time travel. So, who would like to go next?"
All of your classmates raise their hands quickly.
(text-colour:purple)[THE END]You open your eyes and see that Doctor Goodwin is in front of you again. "Wow, I couldn't have imagined this experience would be as absolutely incredible as it was. I've learned throughout my life how dangerous climate change is but I never realized just how much it could destroy the world we love so soon" you say with a sad smile on your face.
"I'm glad you had such a transformative experience, Kayla. Experiences like yours are why this technology could be highly beneficial for the entire human population" Doctor Goodwin says.
"Thank you so so much Doctor Goodwin" you say with a smile and turn to head back to your seat next to Madeline. She looks at you with a quizical look on her face and you speed walk back to sit down next to her.
"Oh my gosh Madeline, you will not believe what I just got to see!"
(text-colour:purple)[THE END]You lower your hand from your eyes and see Doctor Goodwin standing in front of you. "Oh my goodness, that was an absolutely incredible experience! History class has always been cool to me but actually being there for historical events this big puts a whole new meaning to what I've read" you say.
"I'm glad to hear your experience was informative, Kayla. This is exactly why I developed this technology; to further humankind by providing experiences as valuable as these" Doctor Goodwin says with a smile.
"Thank you again for this, I will remember it forever" you say with a smile.
"Good, good. So, who would like to go next? Doctor Goodwin asks the class.
All of your classmates put their hands high in the air.
(text-colour:purple)[THE END]You open up your eyes and see Doctor Goodwin in front of you. "Oh my gosh, that was such an amazing experience! I've read about ancient civilizations in my textbooks but wow it is a totally different experience actually getting to explore them in person!" you say with a big smile on your face.
"I'm glad you had a such positive experience, Kayla. I want many more individuals to have as incredible as an experience as yours in the future with my technology" Doctor Goodwin says.
"Well, I can't thank you enough. This was such a once in a lifetime experience" you say to Doctor Goodwin. You spot Madeline looking at you with an excited look and you speed walk back to sit down next to her.
"Oh my gosh Madeline, I can't wait to tell you all about that amazing experinence!"
