Letter1Reddit user Unlucky13 was sitting at his local coffee shop when he noticed a small drawer under his table. Curious, he opened it. Several handwritten notes were inside.

What he found, then, was a harrowing tale of time travel gone wrong.

“If you are reading this, it means the worst has happened…I am trapped in the year 2013.”

A man named Dave, stuck in 2013, unable to blend into our “primitive culture.” A woman named Emily, who attempted to send help from the future only for her “space-time flux-capacitor” to malfunction on her time machine (who knows her fate!). And a little girl, Sasha, pleading for her grandpa Nick to return to 2278 so she’ll still exist.

Does any of this make sense? Well, no. But just go with it.

Who wrote these notes? Why were there drawers under the table? And what’s up with flux capacitors? Nothing but trouble, I’m telling you
