Today's #flashfiction Robert The Timeologist

 “It's what's on the inside that counts.”

I wondered, around election time in Oz, do they repave the Yellow Brick Road? Anyway onto the flash fiction!

Robert The Timeologist

          Robert the timeologist(he hadn't invented a better name for the new science he created) could look at the time lines of all the universes with a device he invented. In one a dinosaur could be moving at one half the speed as a student playing basketball on a court in another world. These worlds were not simple variations of each other either. They did not share exact histories or futures. Though several of their histories did have moon landings, only a few had dragons and only most had locomotives. The god of time had no influence on the worlds he saw. He felt things as he watched the creatures in the worlds, he cared for them. He smiled for them, he cried for them.

         Over the years he honed the device to become as easy as watching TV but with everything real he became enraptured with observing. So much so he never shared his device with anyone and became oblivious to his own time line except for the little work he needed for the day to day. They called him a shut in, but they were wrong. Robert did open himself up, just to every world but his own.
