It’s a long ride in to the black hole . . .
Scotch tape would put everything back together again, right?
Two tunnels the size of elevator shafts opened up to reveal a pair of black holes locked in a death dance, spiraling toward each other on path for collision. Like the mating of black widow spiders, one black hole will invariably eat the other to create a single super-massive quantum force capable of swallowing the contents of an entire universe. The fate of JohnnyBoy! and the whole town of Anyplace depends on his choice. At the nexus of the universe, he lowers himself to about an inch above the black hole on his left. Grady notices it emits a misty kind of light that comes in and out of focus. He puts his big toe in and wiggles it about. It pulls him toward the void that stretches beyond space and time. Superheated gas and dark matter sweep him backward. Grady doesn’t know which universe he should choose. Is that how the time slip song went? He hesitates, wishing he could remember what Snakeman in the gas bar told him. One leads to the Underworld and the other to the temple of human fate. He has little time to act.
