Thirteen steps to insanity

Thirteen steps. I watch myself appear at the bottom, climb up the thirteen stair steps, and disappear again at the top. Appear at the bottom, climb up the thirteen stair steps, and disappear again…

At the top of the stairs, there was a temporal lab. Doctor Jones was working on perfecting a time travel device, which was nearly finished. I was climbing the spiral stairs to bring his coffee.

Something must have gone horribly wrong. I appear to be trapped in a recurring time loop. I can only watch this same sequence happening over and over.

Appear at the bottom…

“Yesterday, upon the stair,
I met a man who wasn’t there.”

    1. Those stairs just start and end so abruptly…like a tape loop or an animated .gif that just endlessly repeats the same sequence. Sometimes one image tells the entire tale.
