U is for Untied

#AtoZChallenge 2021 April Blogging from A to Z Challenge letter U

It’s against the rules. I’m only here to observe. But, I have to. Running over, I grab the reins and tie them to the edge of the post just in time for the reluctant law officer to jump on the horse and…. He doesn’t really want to chase down the person he’s been tasked to track down. Me either.

He stares at me. I stare back at him and wave.

Then, I press the button on my time machine, to take me to my next stop. I wonder what kind of world-changing paradox will ensue this time. I am going to be in so much trouble when they catch me, but first….

Just a few more loose ends to tie up.
