The Man Who Saw Tomorrow Part 2 of 3
Read Chapter One
Dr. Richardson continued his conversation with the amazing Jack Fielding a man who believed his predictions could end the world.
"Very well, Dr. Richardson, Miss Hendrickson. I do know of something that will occur, without a doubt, in 1963. It will indeed involve the death of a world leader. That's all I can say. Every action I take changes millions of variables. I could literally destroy the world by telling you too much."
"That's mad, if you know someone as important as the day a sitting President of the United States is assassinated, you have a moral obligation to present all those facts to the government."
Gloria jumped in, "I agree, you absolutely do, Mr. Gleason!"
"And, what if I cause something much worse, Miss Hendrickson?"
"And what could be worse than the death of the leader of the free world?" Richardson chimes in.
“How about the death of every man, woman, and child in the free world, my good man! Think of it, we now have nuclear weaponry that could literally turn this world into a fireball, and it would take so precious little to encourage the Russians to push their nuclear triggers. Perhaps, some small dispute over something as insignificant as an island off one of our coasts.
“If the government of the United States of America takes a left when they should have taken a right? Well, you can imagine how that might change the course of human history in certain major historical events, yet to happen.”
Jack Fielding grabbed his coat and hat, "If you'll please excuse me I really have to go. I'm late for a meeting with the mayor."
Fielding walked outside into the dark of night and hailed a cab as Richardson and Miss Hendrickson watched from just outside the building.
Gloria looked to Richardson, "Allen do you really believe he can predict every war, every tragedy, our country...the world for that matter…might face from now until the 21st Century?"
"I'm not sure, dear. I…"
At that moment, a shining light beamed out of nowhere as a gust of wind howled through the light as if it were some kind of opening to another world.
As Jack Fielding tried to enter the cab, a man stepped out from the light and pointed a gun at him. The man pulled the trigger, shooting the "Man who saw tomorrow" directly into the forehead.
"Holy...! Gloria go inside, find a phone, and call the police! This looks like a job for you know who."
Before anyone could see, the man of the atom was already in costume and burst into the opened portal behind the mysterious gunman. But what will he find on the other side?
