BACK IN TIME
Kelvin M. Knight
The engine was gone yet the bonnet was still warm. PI Kowalski moved his hands away. Despite the warmth he saw nothing. Cars were tricky, yet it wasn’t that. He touched the trees nearby. Zilch. This wasn’t right. He’d misplaced his abilities before but that had always followed human intimacy. This was something else. Stepping into the engine cavity, he sat crosslegged, pressed his palms together, and grimaced. Emotions like wisps of smoke swirled around him. Someone laughed. The bonnet clanged shut. An engine roared. He felt his senses yanked backwards then that laughter again.
‘Got you, you psychic moron!’
