"No." Linda said firmly. "We can't. What if we accidently changed time?" Linda didn't want to be near the necklace, but at the same time, she wanted it to solve all her problems. Linda reached out and gently took the necklace from John and put it on. Maybe it would make her feel a little less forgotten by the world. Linda heard a high pitched buzzing sound. Then it all went black.

Given by white
So it would not be dark's
To the ones who could guard it so well

The sacred four
Described in the Lore
Around it would be a shell!
a voice sang. And then it all went grey.

Linda had a weird look on her face again.

"Linda's right, this thing is dangerous, I'm sure of it," stated John. "But I'm fairly sure it must transport every one that's wearing the necklace, so if we were all wearing it, yes, I think we could all go back in time."

He was distracted again by the look on Linda's face. "What's up?" he asked. Then she crumpled to the ground.

"Linda!"

The sky darkened; rain clouds started to deliver their load. Suddenly, lightning could be seen and thunder could be heard in the distance. Strong gale force winds were bearing down on them, and uplifting plants from their roots. Scared, the three noticed movement on the hill above them.

There was human-looking shape bearing down upon them. He or she or it was wearing a long black hooded cloak, so none could see their face. The trio stood defensively around Linda, looking ready to fight if it was necessary. Tancred had his fists up, and John attempted to look bold, although his leg was still causing him great pain.

Sarah took the initiative: "Who are you?" she called. The figure did not respond, but approached them at a quicker pace, hood still drawn down. They were all very scared. The collapsed Linda took a sharp intake of breath. Something was happening to her, but what? John thought.

The figure was now standing next to them, and it was impossible to tell whether it was male or female.

"You must leave," the hooded person said. The voice was male, and John thought it was familiar. "Go, now."

"Go where?" Red asked. "You're the only dangerous thing I can see around here, and if you don't back off right now I'll knock you out!"

"Not where, and don't be such a fool! I know who you are, Tancred Myck. You must leave this time now. There is no place on Earth that is safe for you right now, the dangers are everywhere, whether you can see them yet or not -" the man jumped, turned around and ducked at what appeared to be a bolt of coloured red light that seemed to have a powerful force propelling it that John was instantly fearful of.

"Flee!" the hooded man shouted. "You must flee now!" He dodged another beam of light (this time yellow) and the trio of teenagers were now almost lying flat on the ground in he mud, nervous of something so unknown but obviously dangerous.

Linda had woken up. "Everyone get under the chain!" she shouted at them. The cloaked man was now hiding behind a tree, and an unknown assailant seemed to be continuously firing these shots of light at him. Then the attacker noticed the four of them, and seemed to turn his attention toward them.

This man was not cloaked. He held the instrument that the beams of light were being generated out of in his hand, and from a reasonable distance and through the pouring rain, John could only see what appeared to be a stick.

The attacker raised the light-gun in his right hand and pointed it towards the quartet.

"We have to go!" shouted Linda again, and fumbled with the wet hourglass pendant in her hands.

They heard a distant shout, a terrible outburst of fury that John could describe as nothing but a curse. In horror, they watched as the hooded man that had given them the warning of danger leapt out from behind a tree and pushed the four of them out of the way. Sarah screamed as a bolt of bright green light hit the man square in the chest, and he crumpled into the mud, lifeless.

Then time went backward and they saw him return to life, hide behind the tree, dodge the beam of red light, and disappear altogether. They saw Linda un-collapsing, but then the rewind sped up and none of them could see any more detail of the weird world around them.

When they stopped, John had a look around the garden. The oak tree was still old, but perhaps not to the same degree as before. Some of the smaller plants and bushes were no longer there, and many of the trees were slightly shorter and thinner. There was no longer rain, although there was a slight drizzle. What he saw next nearly made him collapse. Playing by the small pond were four small children who were laughing happily. John smiled; he remembered that he and his friends had played that very same game when they were young.

For some reason his eyes were drawn to one of the children in particular. Then he clicked - he heard gasps on either side of him as the others also understood the truth of their situation - and stared in amazement at their six year-old selves, playing happily in the shallow water.

"Oh my God," Sarah said slowly, as she noticed the four little kids playing nearby. She stood up shakily and stared at them. "Tha-that's us, isn't it?" She turned around and looked at her friends, "We've gone back almost ten years, haven't we? This is crazy, absolutely crazy, but kind of cool, too."

Sarah stared in awe at her six-year-old self, who was laughing and splashing in the water. Six-year-old Sarah ran around over to a bush and disappeared behind it. When she came out, she was holding a tiny, fluffy puppy. "Oh, yeah!" Sarah smiled as she saw her six-year-old self carrying the puppy, "This must have been just after I got Teddy. Wow, he was so little then!"

Sarah turned away from the kids and looked at her friends. "But who was that cloaked man? And what did he want? And the jets of light from that stick! If I didn't know any better, I'd say that stick was a wand and he was cursing us..."

Linda shuffled her feet and stared at the ground. It was her fault they were in this mess. If it weren't for her they'd all be at home, perfectly safe. She had to get them out of this fix.
"We should go back, or else we might accidentaly change the future." Linda said. They'd all go back, she'd leave them to their lives, and go far away, where they wouldn't get hurt. But what about the prophesy-type-thing? Linda bit her lip. What was she to do? Then she spotted herself. She was sitting a bit apart from the others, talking to what seemed to be nothing. But it wasn't nothing. Linda was talking to the "fairies" she insisted lived in the flowers. Suddenly, with a jolt Linda saw her mum coming to bring her six-year-old self home. And then she realized. This was the day her mum was taken away. Tears swam in her pearly blue eyes.

Big John noticed little John was trying to hold as much water in his hands as he could before throwing it up into the air to observe the interesting impact that it made when it came back down and hit the pond.

He turned around to face the others and began to speak, but saw the tears in Linda's eyes.

"What's wrong?" he asked. He noticed that she was looking over at a woman that he barely recognised as her mother, who appeared to be bringing little Linda home.

"This was the l-last t-time I saw her." Linda sobbed. Then she took off at a run towards her mother.

"Linda, wait!" Sarah shouted as her friend ran away. Sarah remembered this day well. She remembered Linda showing up on her doorstep with tears in her eyes, talking incoherently about her mother disappearing. Sarah didn't know a whole lot about what had happened that day. Linda didn't seem to want to talk about it a whole lot, she just wanted someone to comfort her. But Sarah had a feeling they were going to learn a lot more about it now.

"Come on!" Sarah shouted to the guys, "We've got to stop her. She's going to do something stupid, I just know it. She could wind up changing the future!" Sarah ran after Linda, trying to catch up. As Sarah left the park, she noticed that Little Sarah was getting ready to leave as well. She was sitting on the ground, trying to attach Teddy's leash to his collar. Sarah paused at the fence gate until Teddy's leash was hooked on. She smiled as she remembered how Teddy used to run away every chance he got.

Linda heard Sarah calling her, but she didn't care. None of it mattered. Only that she keep running. Running toward what could fill the hole her mother left. Running toward what could've been.

John didn't know what to do, he knew that if the past was changed dramatically, it could send everything into chaos. But then again, he knew that Linda could never been truly happy if she didn't know the truth.

"We have to follow her!" he shouted, and the three of them chased after Linda. They left the gardens behind them.

Linda lept lightly over a rock, then veered over to the right into a forest. She'd take the shortcut she'd discovered at the age of 11 and beat herself to the house. She heard her friends blunder past the trees. Apparently they hadn't seen her and thought she'd gone around the corner after herself. Just as well. She didn't want their noise disturbing the peaceful silence the forest admitted.

John and the others lost sight of Linda. "Where is she?" he shouted as they maintained their quick pace down the street. Sarah and Tancred shrugged.

"Let's just get to Linda's old place." He'd almost forgotten where that was.

"Come on!" Sarah shouted, "Faster!" She kept running down the street, trying to get to Linda's house as fast as she could. Sarah could hear the boys running behind her. Even further behind the boys, was 6 year old Sarah, pulling along Teddy as he tried to sniff every bush that he passed. So far, little Sarah hadn't noticed anything out of the ordinary and hadn't paid a bit of attention to the teenagers running along in front of her.

Sarah rounded the corner and started down Linda's street. By then, little Sarah was far behind. Sarah hoped that whatever they had to do to get Linda to stop could be done quietly, without little Sarah knowing. Sarah knew that if Little Sarah saw them hanging around Linda's house, she would go over to investigate, and that was the last thing they needed.

Sarah ran down the street and saw that Linda was already at her house. How did she get there so fast? "There she is! Linda!" Sarah shouted. She ran past her own house and up the next driveway, towards Linda's house.

John was far behind Sarah. Tancred was trying to help support his leg, but it was more or less hopeless.

"Go!" he shouted at him. "You have to go after Linda! I'll be fine."

Linda ran into her backyard. Surely the men clad in black would be waiting here. Maybe she could distract them and her mother wouldn't come out of the house. She had to try. Linda ran over. They started shooting beams of light at her. She dodged them, still running forward. She aimed a karate-style kick at one, and knocked his light-gun out of his hand. Linda's mother came out, alerted by the commotion.
"NOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!" Linda screamed the most skull-cracking scream anyone ever heard. Then a jet of red light hit her, and she crumpled to the ground.

As Sarah ran up the driveway, Linda ran into the backyard. Sarah turned around for a split second and noticed that only Tanc was running up the street. She suddenly remembered John's leg. Oh, no! she thought. She'd completely forgotten that he probably couldn't run with his leg in such a state.

Sarah ran into the backyard just as Tanc was running past Sarah's house. When she got there, she let out a gasp. Jets of light were shooting all over the place and they seemed to be coming from sticks that black clad men were brandishing. Almost like magic wands, she thought to herself. She snuck over behind the bushes and dodged the beams of light. Think, think, what was she going to do? Linda was in the thick of things, but how could Sarah help? She didn't know what those beams of light meant, but she knew it would be bad to be hit by one.

Sure enough, a few seconds later, Linda was hit with one. She fell to the ground, motionless. "Linda!" Sarah shouted and ran towards her friend. The men noticed her and started firing light at her, but she dodged them. Sarah made it to Linda and started to drag her over to the bushes. One of the men grabbed her arm and stopped her. "Let go! Who are you?" she shouted.
