Chris was a normal child, until his 12th birthday. Now, he is time falling for better or for worse.

1
          The first time I experienced the shift was on my birthday when I was turning thirteen. It was raining with lightning and thunder in the background, just how I like it.

          While I was walking out to the living room to get my presents, I suddenly got a bad migraine. My vision blurred and my field of view tightened. All I could see was a small dot of vision with blue gray streaks around it. I got so dizzy I fell down onto the floor with my ears ringing. I couldn't hear the rain. Then, I got up and looked out the window. I realized my ears weren't ringing.   

      The day was sunny. I turned to my parents sitting on the couch, but, instead, I saw an old couple staring at me. The room was silent except for the tube tv in playing the Today show. I looked at the date on the screen... 'October 25, 1999.' 

       "Holy crap!" I said under my breath. I saw the old man running (as best as a man can run in his eighties) to the phone in the kitchen. I wanted to go home. I was scared. Every part of my body was tingling. I closed my eyes.  
  
     As I heard the old man in the distance, "Hello. 911, a teenager appeared in our living room," I suddenly felt detached from the situation. The old couple long gone behind me, the house (and the earth for that matter) were insignificant now. As I opened my eyes I saw streaks of blue and white traveling past me.I struggled, though I didn't know what I was struggling against. I felt like I was falling, but I felt weightless at the same time. There was no air ripping past me, yet I was breathing.

      Something jerked me to the left. I saw what I thought was the ground. As I 'fell' closer, I realized it was a circle of hardwood floor. I braced for my death. I closed my eyes and thought happy thoughts.

     "Oh, Chris! That looked like it hurt." There was no impact. I opened my eyes. I was on the floor where I had originally fallen. I looked up and saw a stormy day through the window, birthday streamers hung up, and my mum looking down at me from the couch, concerned. "What's wrong?" she asked.
    "Just a bad headache I guess," I replied.
