An eyebrow raised at the specificity of the request. “I assume you have your Time Passport up to date?”

Phillipa shook back her sleeve, revealing the Special Bureau bracer underneath. The T-Travel agent’s eyes widened. “S-sorry, ma’am! I didn’t realize-”

“Okay. Enjoy your trip. Don’t interact with the natives of the timeline, and thank you for choosing T-Travel for your time traveling today!”

Phillipa nodded and stepped to the transport pad. The world twisted and broke, depositing her in a wooded area. She checked her bracer: May 28th, 1929. Sighing, she looked for an area to set up camp, her high-powered rifle heavy in the bag.

She had a month to wait for her ex’s great-great grandparents to come through.
