“Do you love that thing more than me?” his wife questions him at midnight. He doesn’t answer and within ten minutes her car backs out of the driveway.

He goes back to his schedule of watching equations with stinging eyes and fussing with the wires while screaming, “How do I make you work?”

Then one morning, he gets the answer to his and his wife’s question. He watches with mysticism as spacetime warps into a wormhole. It feels like magic but it’s all physics. He enters and meets his wife at that dreadful midnight again.

“No, I love you more.”

    Wow, Aanchal. I just read your “Help” story and now this one, and I am doubly impressed with your skills. This story twists time around, just like the picture you chose to accompany it. Perfect picture, excellent story!

    I hope this machine/equation is never marketed otherwise we would all want one to fix our past mistakes. So it took a worm hole for the husband to realise he loved his wife!
    Good read, Aanchal.

    Lovely stuff, Aanchal. I just realised how many wormholes I’m going to need. Good story. Keep it up!

    Why do my friends need to SignIn to read the post I shared?

    Actually, this is a voting security feature. During public voting, only club members can read posts submitted for that contest. Since anyone reading the story is able to vote (click the Like button), we reserve these capabilities to members who SignIn. Before we implemented this security feature, people were voting multiple times and making the public voting process unfair and out of balance. To fix this, our staff finally decided to allow only members who SignIn to read the stories. Membership is free and easy, and ensures our club is safe, secure, and family-friendly!
