(Short story – 5,000 words approx.)
What could be a better way of getting an ex-girlfriend back than a magic carpet ride through the night to a romantic evening together in some alternate dimension? That is, providing you can find something to do with the extraneous duck.
Tony Merling wants to get his girlfriend back any way he can, even if it means learning to fly a magic carpet without falling off.
But Suzi knows Tony will never fulfil the potential she thought she once saw in him.
That is until the mysterious stranger Morgan reveals that Tony has a power no-one else on this Earth possesses.
But Morgan is on the run and the strange creatures chasing him will not give up their pursuit, even if it means chasing Morgan, Tony and Suzi to the death across many possible realities. Fleeing to a dimension where it depends on Tony and his newly-discovered powers to save them all from drowning in a sea of custard and bring them home to Earth.
