Two unlikely heroes on a quest to save the world


Kenny and Savannah are just two average teenagers-in-training, until they are whisked away by Unquill Hester; whisked away to the 73rd century. Their objective? To save the future of the human race from extinction.

During their adventures on 73rd century Earth, they learn a lot about themselves and the world around them. They see the future of the computer; an entity in itself, which keeps the entire world running. They see the change in human evolution, and meet aliens from another planet. They visit countries that had only ever existed in their dreams and school textbooks, and they get chased by the government.

They are two small beings in a world of giants; will they be able to achieve their goal, or will they die in a time that is beyond their own future?

"The 73rd century? You haven't gone, I don't know, crazy or something? This isn't a dream, right? If it is, it's not a very good one. I'm very sore, and I don't want to be here with this smelly head."

Kenneth waved a hand in the air dismissively. "It's not my fault if your sense of smell doesn't appreciate me. I can't do anything about that."

Savannah put her hands on her hips. "Well of course I can't appreciate anyone who smells as much as you do. Smelly head."

"Now, now, please don't argue," Unquill said. "You two have to work together on this. One of you alone won't suffice. Both your minds are needed for this task."

Savannah turned away from Kenneth. "How hard can it be to find one man when you can see through all of space and time? I'll do it myself."

Kenneth turned from Savannah and said, "If you apologize for calling me smelly, I'll work with you, Savannah. Not before."

"Why should I apologize for something that's true?"

Unquill wrung his hands together. "But, but, but, this isn't the way married couples behave. At least, not in—"

Savannah suddenly whirled to face Unquill. "Married? Are you kidding? You really are crazy! This really is a dream!" Her face clouded and her words tumbled forth in a staccato burst of annoyance mixed with anger. "I'm a kid. I mean, he and I are kids. Married? There's no way. Absolutely not. Forget it. I mean, it's out of the question—totally out of the question! Never in a million years!"

"Then I shall take you both to the year 1,000,001 and you can be married."

"I'm thirteen years old! Thirteen-year-olds don't get married! And what makes you think I'd want to even be with old Smelly Belly here, anyway?" She paused long enough to cast a baleful stare at Kenneth.
