Janie rushed into her fiancé's arms as he held the forgotten car keys up, a comment on the tip of his tongue.

"I forget those entirely too much." she said, smiling up at the much taller man. A fraction of a second later, steel gates lowered all at once, and the parking garage plunged into darkness.

"Get down." Ian whispered.

This is done from the POV of Ella Mae Morton ([profile] loops_in_tyme ) It took place in late February.

"My mission is to correct Janie Louise Taylor.

Janie Louise Taylor was born on a stormy May 15th, to Ella Mae Morton and Robert Taylor. Ella and Robert were both time travelers from different times, and do not know what year they were in when the child was born.

Janie Louise Taylor was a fussy baby. Robert Taylor was able to comfort the child, who resembled both of her parents. The small family lived together for several months, until Robert was reclaimed by Our Esteemed Leader, the Honorable Orishabi.

Is redemption truly possible?

Redeem: To pay the penalty of; to make amends for; to serve as an equivalent or offset for; to atone for; to compensate; as, to redeem an error.

Is that possible? It should be. If you mess up, why can't you be redeemed?

A few months ago, I would have said yes. It is possible. You mess up and you do your penance. Everything is forgiven after that. Then, I moved into the real world.

The real world is a place where you make a group of friends that suddenly starts ignoring you one day. You don't know what you did wrong. They won't tell you, but suddenly you can't get in to see them anymore. They ignore you when you try starting a conversation. They stop calling and there is never an explanation. How can you be redeemed from that?

The real world is a place where you check records to see if people were punished for a crime, only to find out that they weren't. It's where you find out the people that destroyed an entire town lived the rest of their days in peace. They were never prosecuted, or chastised for burning homes, and killing families.

The real world is a place where your family can try to kill you and not feel the least bit bad for it. It's where they can lie to you and say it's for the best. What makes up for gunshot wounds, or running for your life down streets where bystanders ignore what's happening? How do you atone for telling your Grandchild that she should never have been born?

In response to the question: It's sometimes, but not always possible. I wish it was. I want to live in a world where it is, but the possibility of me finding one is very slim.

Most of the time her job was repetitive and dull. When she wasn't focusing on staying awake, her mind would wander and usually she'd mentally complete a few formulas. She had slips of receipt paper in her pockets with symbols and equations scribbled on them, notes that would be added to the larger collection when she returned home. Recently, her thoughts were drifting to one other person, and that scared her. When she bagged a customers groceries and her only thoughts were about rushing out after work to see her boyfriend, she thought that she might be too attached.
