mbmbmbmbmb
Tuesday, April 17, 1906: one of the Market St. cable cars stops to let passengers embark. It's a quiet spring day. A baby coos in a carriage as people begin to shuffle toward the cable car, at just past eleven in the morning. Faceless passengers fidget a bit inside as another cable car creeps up the hill.

A woman in a bright spring hat ascends; she looks toward the bay.

The timestreams shift for approximately six seconds.

She stands there, on that bright spring day, gazing in disbelief as a massive bridge, from thirty years in the future, appears in the bright midday sun, reflected in the calm waters of San Francisco Bay.

And just as quickly, the bridge disappears; she tries to shake the memory, but she's the only witness. The other passengers are all turned away. Life continues.

And fear grips her. Something very wrong has just happened, something she wasn't supposed to see. The shifting temporal plates were moving underneath her; she could sense that now, and she had less than 24 hours to leave the city however she could before the dislocation of time made its presence very well known in the physical world.

She steps up into the car.
