In this romance story, a corporate executive (who really loves watches and clocks) makes the purchase of a lifetime. He goes to his favorite timekeeper’s shop and is presented with a watch that is regarded as junk. Interestingly, it was mailed to the shop owner with no return address.
He (Jeff) brings the watch home and tinkers with it because the watch isn’t working. He finally gets the watch to work, and it transports him to a future world that is corrupt and evil.
Jeff loves his wife so much, and is heart-shattered to the extreme. He meets up with her in the future and sees that she’s remarried to another man, and has two kids with him. Even worse, he can’t get back to his original time period because he was mugged and the watch was stolen.
Can he find a way to get back to the present time? Or, will he spend the rest of his life being heartbroken and depressed?
This is a standalone romance short story ending HEA!
