FLY!!!

But since that wasnt an option I grabbed one of the horses I saw eariler and started riding. I rode for what must have been an hour thinking about the events that just happened. Giant Goober Ray? Xanthria? I didnt know what to do anymore. Before long I came to a town that was semi-populated. It was called...

...La Princesa Bonita. This obsucre little town looked to be like any other border town. Some things American, but definatly rooted in the Hispanic culture. Hoping to find an inhabitant who understood English, or at least the little Spanish I could dredge out of my memory banks, I got off my horse and walked down the center of town. Scanning the storefronts, I decided to enter...

The Pub. There were no clothing stores, being that this was 1915. I figured maybe I could find something or soemone in there that could help me. I walked in to a scene right out of a cowboy movie. Piano in the backround and poker cards at everytable.

My entrance did not go unoticed. The piano stopped playing and all eyes were on me. I got a queasy feeling in my stomach and took a step forward. Almost on cue the piano began again and everyone went back to what they were doing. I aproached the bar and waved for the bartender. I wasnt sure wether I wanted help or just a strong drink.

"What can I do for ye?" the bartender asked with missing teeth...

Well one day, I was fixing to leave for work, when i found out my tempo when i found out my tempo had a bad smell coming from the hood. So I opened the hood and I saw something brown and fuzzy. Of course, I needed to investigate this further. Grabbing a stick nearby on the ground, I proceeded to prod the intruder when suddenly a friend came up behind me and scared the ***^ out of me but when I turned around i noticed a glowing, swirling blue portal in front of me. i had nothing to lose, so i got in the tempo, started it up, and drove through the portal. On the other side I was starting to glide, I was so high I was about to die, but then I came down lookin at da temper with a frown I finally reached the bottom. The car amazingly landed on its wheels like a feather. I thought I just went through a wormhole into another world. I turned off the engine and stepped out of the tempo. The place was deserted. However it looked strangely familiar. Then as I began to wander around, I realized I was in the same place-different time. A man approached me from across the way and look at the Tempo astonished.
"Where'd you get that thing?" he asked "It looks like what they say we'll be driving around twenty some years down the road." Like a ton of bricks it hit me, I had landed in the year 1915. I looked around at my surroundings. Old house here, horse there, everything was so different. The man looked at me and asked, "and where'd you get your clothes?"
I looked astonished at him and replied "Ummm...these?!?" I replied, "It'* not important". And they weren't, except they made me look like a strange alien life form-it was obvious to me that no one around here wore clothes like I had on. But I had much, much bigger issues, so I asked the man... "Where are we?"
"Nowhere." He said. "This place is inhabitated. But it won't stay this way for long. The government just bought this area. They are planning on building a railroad. The 'Las Cruces' Railroad."
"What is keeping them" I said.
"Some freaky stuff has happened lately." The man replied.
I paused for a moment.
"What are you doing here?" I asked.
"Im just staying here for a while. The government has put me here as a watchdog. They seemed to be concerned about trespassers."
I noticed a vague female figure away at my right.
"Who is that lady" I asked.
"What lady? Son, you and me are the only breathing people in this desert"
"I want to know more about this 'freaky stuff'" I replied... as i turned to look at the lady figure in the distance, the gentelmen fell silent. When I looked back at him he was gone. Upon looking at the figure again it was much closer... within feet of me.
I jumped back in excitment. With a quick look from head to toe the woman was gorgeous. Semi-long golden brown hair that hung down to her shoulders, wonderful blue eyes that I could stare into for ages, lips puckered up so perfectly they spoke without saying a word. Her figure was a perfect hourglass shape and she was wearing a one piece red dress that clung to her body and left me speechless.
"W-w-ho are y-y-ou...?" I managed to mutter out.
"I am Xanthria of Trilar, a planet light years away," she said, "I have brought you here to save the world as you knew it. Seconds after you drove through the portal, your world was destroyed when scientist began testing the testing of the giant goober ray. it is your job to stop them now, when this all began. I will help you along the way, but only you can stop this. First, you must get out of this desert. It'* the only place I could think to land your Tempo that wouldn't be noticed by anyone. Upon reaching the nearest town, you must go buy new clothes-you're only gonna get strange looks wearing that. After that we'll worry about getting you to where you need to go."
I rolled my eyes and said, "Oh, thanks alot-first you tell me I have to save the world, now you are insulting my fashion sense." But, she was right, I wasn't going to get anywhere with the people of this century if they kept staring at me like a freak. Getting out of this place wasn't going to be any fun but it was time to get going, since I didn't want to be stuck in a desert with a man who may or may not remain friendly. After some scheming and contemplation, it occured to me that the best way out of this desert was FLY!!! But since that wasn’t an option I grabbed one of the horses I saw eariler and started riding.
I rode for what must have been an hour thinking about the events that just happened. Giant Goober Ray? Xanthria? I didnt know what to do anymore. Before long I came to a town that was semi-populated. It was called La Princesa Bonita. This obsucre little town looked to be like any other border town. Some things American, but definatly rooted in the Hispanic culture.

"What can I do for ye?" the bartender asked with missing teeth...
Whiskey! That was my first thought, maybe if I sat here and drank myself unconscious I would wake up again back where I belonged. I sat, sighed aloud and said "Water, if you don't mind, Sir".
"You new around these parts?" the bartender said as the drunk next to me eyed me suspiciously.
"Yeah, I guess you could say that-this place seems like a new world to me" and nothing could have been closer to the truth.
"Not making much progress sitting around on you're butt, this is not where you need to be," said a voice behind me. I spun around to see Xanthria, now dressed in the appropriate 1915 atire.
"Hey, I've gone through a lot...I deserve this break" I retorted, she was beginning to annoy me.
"No, you have work. Now up off that stool, we need to get you to...
