Scharlette Doesn’t Matter and Goes Time Travelling
by Sam Bowring
Ever since Scharlette’s parents gave her a stupid name that no one can pronounce properly, she’s been stuck in a bit of a rut.
She hates her dead-end job as a security guard at the airport, she lives alone in a shoebox apartment she will never pay off, and to make it all worse, it’s been ten years since her sister, Jenelope, was killed by an exploding sandwich press, and no one seems to care.
Then, at her security gate, a handsome time traveller named Tomothy is attacked through wormholes by snipers from the future, and drops a strange device that lets the wearer communicate with their past self.
As Scharlette gets caught up in a battle between time agents, she learns that she was never going to do anything important with her life, so she has no impact on the timeline whatsoever – and thus she is free to travel time and space and have amazing adventures with heedless abandon.
