Professor Layton and the Time Device

By CharlieBigNose

Scifi / Romance

Prologue - It's time - again

The professor was sat at his desk, marking papers as usual. He had been in this job for over twenty five years now, and knew exactly what he was doing. Tick, tick, comment, next paper. The professor continued on like this until he heard his wife and son enter the office.

Emmy beamed at him as she sat down on the sofa with their son, Alfendi in tow. "Nearly finished?" she asked.

"Almost," the professor replied, scribbling one last comment on the end of the paper in front of him.

Emmy cleared her throat. "Er… do you know what day it is, Hershel?"

"Tuesday," the professor replied.

"The date?"

"15th May, 2029," the professor replied. Then he stopped. "Ah… I remember." He suddenly looked quite anxious.

"What is it, mother?" Alfendi asked.

Emmy sighed. "We have to go on a mission. All of us. And it starts today."

"No. I want to hear!" he said enthusiastically.

Dru83: This is the second or third time I've read this one and I just love it. It has just about everything you could ever want packed into one scifi story.

Christopher Chew: Been a while since reading was this fun. The plot was easy to follow and built at a gradual but good pace.

A.O. Chika: I loved the storyline. The characters, the settings, and the overall plot was great. I love how it started sweet in the beginning and then the angst set in.

TonyHeredia: I've been reading science fiction and fantasy for many years and I still don't think I've read a story like this before. It is realistic, lusty and techy all at the same time.
