Excerpt from Foretoken below:
‘Oh my god!’ I ran over to check on him, ‘Damn! That was fun. But I slipped on something…’ he said while laughing lying across the tracks, he reached down to his shoe with his right hand, ‘There I feel it, something metal is stuck to the bottom my shoe, what is it?’ he asked. Worried, I moved down to look at his shoe, I peeled off a flattened penny from his sole, it had a strange circle with a stretched figure eight enclosed within it.
‘Jesus, who cares, it’s a flattened penny, we have to get you off the tracks, a train might come!’ I said pleading with him.
‘It’s weird. I can hear what you’re saying but somehow I can’t see you anymore,’ I saw a river of blood flowing out from the back of his head while he laid upon the steel beam.
‘Connor? CONNOR! Stay with me!’ I yelled out, ‘It doesn’t work like that, keep the penny close to you. It will remind you of things that shouldn’t be, a token from the future,’ he shut his eyes and died.
