Welcome to Friday Fictioneers, when writers from around the world post 100-word stories based on a photo prompt provided on Rochelle Wisoff-Fields’ blog. This week’s photo is by Adam Ickes. Thank you, Adam!

A fully automated docent led us through the first time portal. “Remember! Travelers must remain on the boardwalk at all times.”
We walked through time in a geographic setting known only as “North American Continent.” Each time slice was preceded by a portal, labeled in relation to the others:
♦ Before Europeans landed on the continent.
♦ Before the native genocide.
♦ Before human trafficking.
♦ Before the Forty Wars.
♦ Before Taurons landed on the planet.
♦ Before the cyber revolution.
♦ Before the Cleansing.
♦ Before the Final Peace.
A single pair of “shoes,” the footwear required by the extinct, flesh-and-bone humans, stood at the exit.
