Ryan shifted uncomfortably in his chair under the scrutiny of the tribunal. "You've been with this organization for over 10 years, with an exemplary record. I am extremely dismayed and disappointed in you. These charges against you are not only extremely serious, but inexcusable. Stealing medications? Administering them without a license? Unlawful interactions with people in the past? What in HELL were you thinking?"

Before he could even open his mouth, his advocate stood up. "Magistrate, I have documentation here that will eliminate most of the charges."
"Let me see the documentation, please." She was handed the prescriptions and Ryan's certification to administer the meds. "I see. All charges are hereby dropped EXCEPT the unlawful interactions with people in the past. Mr. Edwards, do you have anything to say in your behalf?"

While waiting for Duncan to respond, Ryan thought back to the night, several days ago, when he went back the last time to retrieve the artifact. He waited until around 3am to slip into the house. Quietly he climbed the stairs and entered Ethan’s bedroom. Ethan was asleep on his side. Ryan crept around to the side facing away from Ethan and carefully pressed the injector to his bare shoulder. A quick, quiet hiss announced that the medications had been delivered. He pressed his lips gently to Ethan’s temple then whispered. “I’ll always take care of you.”


“That’s not the issue here. I wouldn’t be giving my wife medications stolen from the future. That’s the issue. You went back into the past and administered medications from our time to a person in the past. You DON’T have a license to practice medicine. You don’t know what effect the medications could have on him. As a matter of fact, I sent Terrence back to check on your lover boy and you may be interested in knowing that he’s in the local ICU. Nobody knows what’s wrong with him or what to do. Think about that.” He got up to leave. As he reached the door, Duncan turned back, the look of pain once again on his face. “What happened to you, Ryan? You were the best, with a spotless record. Now look where you’re at; in jail, facing multiple counts of illegal interactions with people in the past, 4 counts of medication theft, 4 counts of administering medications without a license, and now possible murder if he dies. I wish I knew what was going on in that head of yours.”

“I don’t care what happens to me, as long as Ethan lives.”

“Let’s hope he does.” Duncan closed the door behind him.

Love Across Time chapter 8


 Chapter 8 of my Wednesday briefs story, Love Across Time is now up. You can read it by clicking here.

If you have just come across my blog and would like to read the entire story, you can click here to get to the Wednesday briefs page.

Here is a sneak peek at what you'll find in chapter 8:
Upon walking in the door from playing a few rounds of miniature golf with his girlfriend and her family, Ethan’s brother Chris heard a loud banging coming from upstairs. What the hell? Rushing up the stairs he quickly zeroed in on the source of the banging – Ethan’s room. Throwing the door open he found Ethan on the floor in the midst of convulsions. He grabbed a pillow off the bed to protect his head as he dialed 911. Looking around while waiting for the paramedics to arrive he noticed an open pill bottle in Ethan’s hand and several pills scattered about on the floor. God, I hope this isn’t what it looks like. He prayed. After several attempts he was able to pry the pill bottle out of Ethan’s hand. He sighed with relief that it was one of his HIV medications, Epzicom. He must have been taking them when the seizures hit. I wish I knew what to do. He did the only think he could do while waiting for help – he kept Ethan from hurting himself.

The paramedics arrived, took one look at the scene and rushed Ethan to the hospital after helping Chris gather up all of the pills scattered about. A half-hour later, Chris was out of his mind with worry. After a couple of hours a doctor entered the waiting room. “Is there a Chris Evans here?”


Chris and his girlfriend, Jenny, approached the doctor. “I’m Chris Evans and this is my girlfriend Jenny. What’s happening with my brother?”


“Honestly, we don’t know. The seizures have finally stopped. We’ve done a brain scan and everything appears to be normal. In a few minutes we’ll be taking him up to an isolation room in the ICU. Until we know for sure what caused his seizures, we’re leaving nothing to chance.” The doctor looked hesitant to continue.

As an afterthought Duncan asked, “Did you at least use protection?”

“No. I didn’t even think of it.”

“You realize that while we have eradicated STDs in our time, in this Ethan’s time, they were still rampant.”

“Yeah, I know.” In a whisper he added, “Ethan is HIV positive.”

Duncan’s face turned white. “I assume you’ve had all of the inoculations?”

“Yes, so I’m not worried about getting infected.”

“Okay, back to the original topic. You have to go back to just before you met him and retrieve the object. That way the two of you will have never met and the timeline will be completely restored.”

“That’ll fix almost everything,” Ryan responded dejectedly.

“What are you talking about?”


“Sure, my going back to before we met will fix the timeline and him, but not me.”
