Just... don't push yourself or anything. You- you could probably afford to take a day off. It's not like it's the end of the world if you don't help with the event.

[NPC] Naru:.........

Also you're still in your pajamas.

Naru throws some clothes on and visits the coffee shop on the ground floor.

That would be the "College Paper is Due in the Next Six Hours and I Accidentally Deleted my In-progress Final Draft" Special. It's a blend of Black Espresso with one part sugar and two parts ground up caffeine pills.

Unfortunately we can't sell it to anyone under 21. Had someone from the health department try some and they had to go through bypass surgery immediately after. The health warning is printed on the cups they come in, which I personally think is both clever and adorable.

Hey, uh, you're not looking too good. Did you get any sleep last night?
External Avatar
No, as a matter of fact I didn't. Couldn't stop thinking about the world ending because of time itself collapsing a few blocks away from me.

I... Sorry, I didn't think you would take it so seriously. Well actually, I thought you'd treat the issue with some urgency, but to lose sleep over it is... well... "not good" would be the understatement of understatements...


Well, good news is I've already made a solution. Originally I thought keeping a bunch of time travelers in Central Park would be a fairly simple task... but given your reaction yesterday I've been thinking the job I gave you might have been a little unfair. So, I've decided to take matters into my own hands to make life a little easier for you so you don't have to keep a watchful eye over the park at all times.

I put a barrier around the park is what I'm saying.

[NPC] Naru:......A barrier.

Yup. Installed it last night. Don't worry, I made sure to program it so only you and your family could freely move through it.
Now you won't have to worry about anyone escaping and exploiting their vast knowledge of the future on an unsuspecting present. The barrier will keep them all inside like one big butterfly net. Unless they destroy the barrier somehow.
But they would have to be really strong to do that, and I don't think anyone like that will show up any time soon.

Speaking of which, I checked the park this morning and it looks like we caught someone! From what I can tell they showed up some time last night and they're really upset that they can't leave the park.

Alright, I'll go check it out. Can I at least get some coffee before I go?
