and this time it’s very important you do it exactly like that every step, every minuscule detail it’s all extremely crucial one deviation and there’s no telling what the consequences will be now do you have any questions? what the hell happened to your face, man? you’re already drunk this is important I was here at 10:30 remember it you’ll need to beat me here I’m too late? and it’s absolutely crucial that you follow every bit of minutia in the process every step every detail it’s all extremely pivotal one tiny deviation and there’s no telling what the outcome will be now do you have any questions for me? so you remember this conversation from when you were sitting where I am now? I do I remember being nervous and then thinking it was a prank but eventually following the instructions I didn’t write anything down so I think you should but if I do what you say and it works why do you even need to bother coming back? obviously things didn’t work out for me as planned but I’ve modified the instructions in an attempt to rectify it for you but what if the new instructions don’t work either? then you’ll be sitting in this chair 30 years from now with your own new and improved plan it sounds so stupid to me I’d just break the cycle I wouldn’t even bother coming back I said the very same thing and I sure as hell am not going to look like that I said that too so, why are you here exactly? I’m not here to amend my own life in some way I’ve made peace with all my failures they’re complete and mine to own I’m here on your behalf I don’t get it why bother? why come back if you can’t even alter the future in a way that betters yourself? because eventually one of us hopefully you won’t have to come back I’m sorry… I’m just… I’m having a really hard time believing that you’re me with me being me and all you’ll never be me your path forks from this very moment but I was once you all right you know what? I actually think it’s time you… said my goodbyes I suppose it is that time once I exit you’re gonna call her and tell her what a freak I am but eventually down the line you’ll figure it can’t hurt to do what I’ve instructed here just in case it’s 5:30 remember that it’s very important and be careful of the broken glass hey you’ll never guess what just happened to me this crazy guy came over to my place claiming to be me from the future that’s what I thought but no but… it wasn’t you was it? I don’t know but I’m… I’m actually pretty shook up no he didn’t… I didn’t see a resemblance but here’s the crazy part he said he was giving me these instructions in order to save your life somehow. I know what a freak right? hey were there others? see for yourself and I’ve been thinking there’s all these logistical issues to work out shared fingerprints DNA one social security number just let me in did it work? did you save her this time?
