An Excerpt from The Tomorrow Paradox (Book Two in The Adventures of Mackenzie Mortimer):
Mackenzie looked away. “Except for Vanessa. How did she die, Dad?”
“Mac, don’t you think you’ve learned enough about your future for one day? You need time to absorb this. I shouldn’t even have told you any of this.”
“I need to know, Dad. What happened?”
“Son, we all make choices in life. We hope we’re doing the right thing; sometimes we are and sometimes we’re not. At times, we don’t always appreciate the ramifications of our decisions; but there are occasions when we opt to do what we think is best under the circumstances.” He walked over to a wall safe, entered a security code, and opened it. He pulled out a brown envelope with the word “Mac” written in faded pencil. “You showed me this, shortly after I arrived. You told me you never wanted to see it again, yet you couldn’t bring yourself to destroy it, so I’ve kept it locked away all these years.”
“What is it?” Mackenzie asked.
Raymond passed it to the boy. “The answer to your questions. Don’t read it now. Take it with you, and when you’re ready… If you’re ready… Then you can look at it.”
“The envelope is addressed to me,” Mackenzie said in surprise.
Time is running out… fortunately, Mackenzie Mortimer has a few more minutes than anyone else!
