Professor Turnabout at the Battle of Imjin River, 1592

Avigail Sharer

Wherever I’m going, it sure is noisy ... I can hardly hear the doors slide open and the electronic voice tell me, “We have reached our destination.” As I head out the door, I take a quick look at the Locometer and see that I’m in Korea. I step down and sniff: there’s a river nearby, I can smell the damp. I look around.... Oh, my! Oh, dear me.

 That’s it; I’m going back home. But when I try to open the door of my Locometer, I see it’s shut fast. It’s not going to open until I’ve accomplished my mission!

I walk into a wooded area, hoping that no one has seen me.

“Ooooh. Eeeeeh. Aaaaaah!”

Is that moaning I hear? I follow the sound through the forest, until I see a man, leaning against a tree. Even though he’s wearing armor, his arm is bleeding. I help him take off his armor and look at the wound. He’s going to need a bandage, so I take off my lab coat and tear it into strips to help bind up the wound.

The man smiles, showing very white teeth against his dark skin. His thin, slanty eyes look at me with a mixture of respect and fear. I make him comfortable, and then, supporting him as he leans on me, I walk with him through the dense, dark forest until we are far away from the battle.
