The Shoes

“What do you mean, he vanished?” The officer demanded.

“I don’t know, Sir. He is not there.” The guard replied.

“Open the door.” The officer ordered. The door was opened. The man had disappeared; From the top floor of the highest building in the city, with guards manning the door. The man just vanished. His shoes were all that was left of him.

The man who claimed to be a time traveler had disappeared. And with him, the officer’s hope to meet his mother was gone too.

    1. Yeah.. He wanted to talk privately. And didn’t want to lose him. little did he know that the time traveler would vanish.
      Thank you, Brenda. Do look up about the real incidents related to the time travelers. The story is inspired by one such incident.

  1. Sounds like the ending to a much longer tale. You leave me very curious about the vanished man, but more intriguingly, about the officer, and his wish to “meet” his mother, leaving thoughts of adoption, abandonment, and other infantile distress swirling in my head.
