     “Alec is not home he is at work. He works at the bank,” Alex answered Joe. “Alexis please go to your room.” When Alexis went upstairs Alex invited Joe in. They sat on the couch and chatted. “Alec robs the bank he’s working at on Tuesday the 15th,” Joe said. “Oh, my!  Does this mess up the future? Can I talk Alec out of it? What will we…?”

     “Relax Alex. All you have to do is get him fired tomorrow or get him to quit. Then make sure he stays home for awhile. Then he will forget about robbing the bank,” Joe said. “What about you? What do I tell him when he sees you?” Alex asked. “Tell him I’m one of your old friends. Tell him I came to visit and meet Alexis,” As soon as Joe finished his sentence the door flew open.

     “I’m home honey. Is dinner… who is this?” Alec said when he walked in. “This is one of my friends from when I was in high school,” Alex said calmly. Joe shook Alec’s hand and left the room. “Why didn’t you tell me your friend was coming. Plus he looks like he is in his thirties. You’re in your forties,” Alec quietly yelled to Alex. Alexis heard her dad’s voice and ran downstairs. “Daddy you’re home. I got all my sight words right today.”

     “I’m so proud of you. You barley even studied them,” Alec replied. Alexis ran and turned on the TV. She sat down and changed the channel to Nick Jr. It was 5:00pm so her favorite show was on. I only have a few days to fix the future. Joe thought to himself. But it’s obvious he doesn’t trust me. Alec kept a close eye on Joe at dinnertime. In fact, he wouldn’t let Joe out of his sight. Why don’t you trust him? Alex thought. She thought, and thought, and thought.
