Short Echoes Prompt -3- Hacking the Time Machine

What do we want? Time travel stories! When do we want them? That's irrelevant! No, wait, I meant to say April 26th! I think I messed that up. Let's travel back to the past and fix that, shall we?

This month's flash fiction prompt is "hacking the time machine" inspired by this post from the inimitable Start Your Novel blog.

We've seen all manner of time travel stories, but this month we're looking for a new spin on the idea. As usual we'll pay the winner of the contest ten dollars and produce the story in audio form (Protip: we'll be reading the story aloud, so you should think about doing the same before you send in your submission; smooth out anything that might trip up the delivery.) Please tell your story in no more than 1,000 words and send it on to hepodcast @ before the contest closes on April 26th.
