Time, as we all know it, is an abstract concept full of holes and theories we can never hope to prove. This, of course, is all speculation being that no one can physically see time only the effects, well most of us.

There is a small group of people who can see the physical aspect of time. They mainly reside outside of it being that residing in time could potentially blind them. It's like being in a dark room and seeing the light from under a door, and then suddenly being emerged into the room full of light.

Of course this didn't mean, by any stretch of the imagination, that they, in fact, didn't ever enter the time stream. The only problem was, after the partial sight loss, was interacting with the inhabitants.

The story I'm about to tell you is about the man who found that being in love with a woman of time was one of the worst things that could happen.

It had started like an ordinary day for him. He went out, checked the mail, walked on to work. After that he went to dinner at the regular bar and grill joint he went to on most every Wednesday. From across the bar he noticed a kind looking girl in sunglasses. He smiled at her and waved a bit. Sending a drink her way she decided to talk to him.

From there they hit it off. Romance sparked and he was even contemplating asking her to marry him. But everyone has their limits when it comes to temptation and he found his. A quite whorish girl who wore too much makeup and too little clothes won over his heart, if only temporarily.

The man she loved had left her for someone shallow and more silicone than flesh and this left her damaged. Deeply torn between being a time guardian, or being on earth to find a new love.

But time had played her cruelly causing her to become calloused and vengeful. She decided to make his life a living hell. And in doing so she abused her power as a guardian.

Her cruel acts became worse and worse as he went through his life. First she sabotaged his wedding to, not the Barbie doll, but to a sweet bookish girl. Before the guests were late the priest showed up early and had to leave soon after. Then the food at the reception was spoiled and the cake was deflated and rock hard.

The next day she ruined was the day they decided to try for children. In undefined ways she prevented them from ever having children.

After that he lost his job.

Then he lost his retirement fund.

Then he lost her.

And finally when his death came near she was ready to make it the worst, and final experience of his life. Her gaze was intent; full of fire as she watched this one moment in time. She began with his kidneys. Next his liver. Then his lungs, gall bladder, and finally his heart. She completely obliterated it. His body had shut down so efficiently his official Cause of Death was 'Old age; it was his time'. And they couldn't be more right.

It was his Time.
