#FlashFictionDistraction no. 2

I've been pulled away from #NaNoWriMo by another #SatSunTails prompt.

I've had a bit of fun with this one and have probably been watching too much Dr Who which has certainly influenced this time travelling tale.

The word prompt was "Time's miscreant".

I looked up miscreant - I like to check the BIG words. Scoundrel and troublemaker were two words that appeared in the Thesaurus list.

But what if he truely thought he was helping...?

 He stood before the council somewhat vexed by their rebuke.

“I wanted to help them, they are such small unintelligent creatures, unbelievably stupid. How can they survive without us?”

“The human race are on their own. It is not your place to interfere. You know the rules; three strikes and you are out. We have no other option but to terminate you.”

“Oh I don’t think so.”

They may have wrenched the time band from his wrist but he had fashioned another time jumping device from the battered TV set. It just required fine tuning. 

The Celts were first bemused by his appearance, but they looked great in blue. 

He sorted out his skin tone when he reached the Tudors only to be denounced for witchcraft.

All his intergalatic jokes and Queen Victoria remained steadfastly unamused.

This was his final chance to find a time when he would be accepted.

OK time for me to get back to NaNoWriMo now and stop procrastinating - oh if only time travel were really possible!
