In the near future, time travel is discovered to be quite possible, and so much easier than previously expected that the corporations are allowed limited privileges to research the possibilities in time travel tourism. Company X has taken it upon themselves to allow their group a little more leeway with the given privileges, and do more "field research". During one of their "routine" exercises, a team of scientists has traveled back to ancient Egypt. A young scientist has wandered away from his group and is peeking over a ridge to watch some of the natives mill about. The assignment is to simply watch certain events and report back as to the accuracy of the world's history books. One young scientist has sneaked away from his group and is peeking over a small ridge to watch some of the natives, when he notices something... odd. He recognizes a young woman who is supposed to be an aid to a priest of the current pharaoh, but according to his notes she should have been assisting with gathering provisions for a ceremony that evening. At that moment, however, he sees her being hauled away by several guards. This obviously appears very wrong, and his instinct says he should look into it, or tell someone.
This story will be mainly about him saving this woman, against all principles one learns about time travel. The potential behind this little plot line could mean it ends up being a much larger story, and could even require more than two people. Hey, if there's enough interest in it, I wouldn't mind that at all!
More ideas to come soon!
