Jake woke up, still feeling slightly groggy from the effects of his mission the day before. He had been working at the Agency for five years and he'd still not got used to the effects of time travel. He slowly got out of bed, throwing a clean pair of clothes on. He was a tall, well-built man in his mid-twenties, with short dark brown hair, green eyes and a scar over his right eye. The only other remarkable feature of his body was a strange device attached to his wrist, an item all time agents carried as standard. He headed downstairs making himself a coffee and preparing his breakfast. He heard the familiar thump as his daily newspaper hit the door. Leaving his breakfast for a moment he made his way to the door, almost absent-mindedly picking the newspaper up but freezing when he saw the headline in front of him.
"PRESIDENT TELLS CONGRESS: WAR IN EUROPE PROCEEDING AS PLANNED"
'That couldn't be right,' he thought to himself. They'd only been having talks about NATO the day before, how could the war have started so quickly? Without even stopping to worry if anyone was watching he tapped a set of buttons on his wrist device.
"This is Agent Smithers to Time Agency Central Command," he said into the device he had raised towards his mouth. "I have reason to believe a temporal fracture has occured, has anyone discovered its source yet?" He was met by deathly silence, but that wasn't his biggest concern. The Agency had a unique frequency the devices had been designed to detect, yet his device seemed unable to detect it at that moment. Something was going very wrong but he couldn't figure out what.
