The Time Traveler's Strife
Weary of Phoebe's constant bullying, Saffy dreamed of traveling back in time and becoming a stronger, more confident woman. One day, when Phoebe was sleeping soundly on Mama's bed, she constructed a magical time machine. At the last minute, she remembered to grab her favorite toys for the journey.
First, she decided to try on the persona of someone beautiful...like Audrey Hepburn, but the pants felt a little too tight and uncomfortable.
Then she decided to go back in time a little further and see what it would be like to be someone very smart like Marie Curie; however, lack of opposable thumbs resulted in nothing but broken beakers.
She thought that perhaps if she went back even further and slipped on the brave armor of someone like Joan of Arc, she'd know what it felt like to stand up for herself. Alas, the voices in her head told her to return home.
Upon her return, she made a very important decision. Maybe she didn't need to change at all. Maybe Phoebe needed to be packed up and sent away on a very, very long trip!
