The Aftermath

by Jackson Ferrell

Corpses littered the streets. Martin performed last rites for each of the now-permanently-dead, and Chrissy waved to Nietzsche and Andrew Jackson as they stepped through the time portal. It closed with a hum.

Chrissy looked earnestly at her friend. "Martin...is Joe in heaven now?"

Martin stared up at the sky. "God only knows."

This series is still one of the best things on this site. I particularly love how it comes full-circle back to Joe at the end.
