What If Your Life Was a Lie?

What if the people you trusted the most were lying to you?

What if everything you thought you knew about yourself was a lie? 

All the things you take for granted, your name, your family, your home, what if none of it was true? What if the people you trusted the most were lying to you? 

As I was sitting here writing this blog post I started to wonder what I’d do if I found out this wasn’t my real life. Now I would probably cry because I like my life, but what if the missing life was better? Sometimes I’ll have a nightmare that I’m married to the wrong person and wake up with this feeling of so much wrong! Sometimes it takes me half a day to shake it off. 

I’d like to think that no one could make me completely forget my hubs and my kids and grandkids (and I’d fight them if they tried!). 

When I first introduced Jane Jones, my Special Forces Temporal Agent, I didn’t know that much about her—other than that she could travel through time, of course, and that she had a temporal time problem to solve. Of course, things happen, lots of things happen, but through it all, her sense that something is wrong with her is growing. 

From Nebula Nine:

Jane didn’t remember leaving the casino. One minute she was there staring at the man, the next she was back in the corridor. She got bumped again and managed to move to the edge of the flow, finding a blank wall to lean against. Her knees felt gone and her heart thumped in her chest. Inside her head, her brain felt like glass with cracks spreading across the surface, leaking pain from some hidden place that she hadn’t known was there. 

She stared straight ahead, feeling again the moment when she saw him. That was the blow that had cracked her memories. She’d been clinging to the handle, frozen as evil crept closer and closer to sensing her and then—the breath of clean and crisp had blown past her, sending malice back to its owner. 

Her breathing shallowed. She made herself take deeper breaths, as fear of what lay hidden deep inside her own head dried her throat. 

Who was that man? Why did it feel like he mattered? She’d never seen him before—at least, he hadn’t been in the security footage she’d seen. Was he a time deviation? But even if he was, the sight of him shouldn’t put her into shock. Her skin was clammy and she clenched her teeth to keep them from chattering. She saw a few glances cast her direction and straightened. Forcing herself upright, she made herself saunter, at least she hoped that was how her walk looked. She still felt unsteady. 

She saw the museum gift shop, almost empty, and turned toward it. Wove through the aisles until she was at the back, standing in front of a model of the space station. She reached out, lightly touching one of the arms sticking out from the ungainly thing. 

“You’re not supposed to touch the model,” a deep voice said, off to her right. 

She jerked around and there he was again. Broad, pulsing with leashed power, his blond hair brushed back from a high, proud brow. His eyes were impossibly blue and shattered the barrier inside her head. Time pulsed around him. He wavered in, out, then back into view.

He flashed something badge-like. “I need you to come with me,” he said.

The words echoed inside her head. She felt her knees losing integrity as a black hole formed at his back. His hand gripped her elbow, but he couldn’t save her as the hole sucked her in.

What Jane learns about herself and Ryder sends her life spinning in a new direction—one filled with danger, but also with love. And this story ends up connecting—lightly—to my Project Enterprise series via Time Trap, a short story I wrote for Pets in Space®.
