Once upon a time there was a man who was really close to his family. One day he was going for a dinner in a restaurant where he was supposed to meet his family. While he was travelling suddenly he got the news that some expansion activity in a nearby nuclear plant went wrong. He was taken aback with the news. The nuclear plant was very close to the place he was supposed to meet his family for dinner. He panicked and started running towards the restaurant. There was just one thing in his mind that his family should be safe and healthy. With every passing minute, his tension level was increasing. As he was running he saw a huge light coming towards him, he couldn't figure out what it was and just before he could understand anything he lost his consciousness.
When he woke up, he felt week and physically very different. He looked around and found himself in a hospital bed. He has hardly seen a place like that the whole room was filled with machines he has never seen before. His eyes were still not opening properly and the lights seemed really bright to him. He noticed a man standing a little far from him, he looked at the man and asked "Where I'm now ? and Where is my family ?" The man in the room came closer to him and said "You shouldn't exert yourself, you need rest. Your eyes will get strained." The man lying in the bed got agitated, he was regaining his senses slowly, "I want to know it now", he said in a louder voice. The man in the room looked at him and said "20 years ago there was a nuclear explosion and we saved you...we sent a time machine and you were brought to the future...only you." The man in the bed looked startled for a few seconds and lost his consciousness again.
The rough draft of this short story was written by me and few of my friends in 15 minutes while we were taking part in an activity. We were given a 6 words to weave a story within 15 minutes. Words were, upon, family, expansion, machine, dinner and time.
