Youth versus experience.

Brains versus brawn.

FBI hand to hand combat training versus a college wrestling scholarship.

"Say uncle!"

Colby was flat on his back on the wrestling mat, staring up at his son who was wearing a smug grin as he pinned his father.

There were countermoves, ways to get free of this hold, but after Colby weighed the option of setting his fifty-something body against his son at full strength, he went ahead and tapped out.

"Oh, man!" Tyler complained. "You didn't even try!" He let Colby go, offering him a hand to stand. "I kind of miss you kicking my ass to make me better in high school."

Colby parlayed the hand hold into a wrestling move and had Tyler on his back on the mat in a split second.

Once he got over the shock, Tyler burst out laughing. "Oh, nice!" he taunted as Colby let him up. "Is that your not too subtle way of reminding me that not all fighting is done in a ring with rules, that I've got to be on my toes at all times?"

"Nah," Colby scoffed, smirking. "I just wanted to show you the old man's still got it."

Apparently this universe is going to be written by jumping around in time.

A lot.


I'd say good luck keeping up, but I think I'm trying to myself!
