Drabble: Frozen by William A. Veselik

by specklit

They say there are occasions in your life when time seems to stand still.

Unfortunately, that is my life.

I won’t go into detail, but I found this magical pocket watch: used it; broke it; time stopped. ‘Nuff said.

Sounds like a bad Twilight Zone episode.

I can move, but everyone else is frozen, so there’s no one to talk to. Time stopped at 1:29 a.m., so it’s always dark now and all TV stations are stuck on infomercials.

I found a magical watch repair shop in the Yellow Pages, but it won’t be open until tomorrow.

Oh, wait. Nevermind.

Author’s note: This is the downside to being able to freeze time, and what are the chances there’d be a magic watch repair shop in town…that will never open?
