Description :

You are part of a group of people who have been abducted by the government, and placed in a large windowless room with one imposing steel door.

In the center of this room is a kind of vest placed on a pedestal. None of you know what to make of it so you leave it alone.

You are given plenty of water, and food that could be considered gourmet, but day after day you are still trapped in this metal box. You fear sooner or later you will go insane.

After what you assume is two weeks, you hear a noise at the single door leading outside the room. Then you see the telltale sparks of welding. You are being sealed into this place....

The next day a voice comes from the ceiling speakers which you just now notice. And it say's. "The Vest Is Your Key To Freedom. Learn what it is or die in this room. You will only be fed for two more days."

Everyone scrambles to the vest to find that inside is a small dial with a digital screen above it. The vest itself is quite heavy, and you assume it is because there are computer components of some kind inside it.

Someone says "What is it?" and another who had introduced himself as Logan Kane says "I dunno but I am putting it on." He flings it around his shoulders and places his arms through the sleeveless sleeves.

You all are afraid that you will lose out on getting freed and just then Logan turns the dial. It reads 2040, and a woman's computerized voice repeats the numbers. "You have chosen twenty-forty. Please standby."

You are confused.....and then the voice returns. "Commencing in 3....2....1.." and suddenly Logan is gone. No flash of light, no boom, just poof.

You are now almost at the edge of despair. Is he the lucky one? Will we all die in this pla.....

You are cut short by the sudden re-appearance of Logan. He is out of breath. Huffing and puffing he says "Damn they were trying to kill me!" He opened the vest and pointed at a red button marked -Recall-. "I'm lucky I pressed that button when I did.......and.......I think I was in the future...."
