The Advancement of Mateo Matic (2017)

This is the story of two people who are only able to live for one day every year. Every 24 hours, they are sent forward in time exactly 365 days. After finally getting used to this life, however, Mateo’s family and friends begin to systematically disappear, while no one else even remembers that they existed. It is up to him to find a way to bring them all back. This is the table of contents for volume 3. Click here to see the table of contents for 2015, and here for the table of contents for 2016. I run a new installment every single Sunday at 16:15 Central Time, so wait for that time and go crazy.

The first thing that Mateo’s once-mother, Aura Gardner wanted to do was start planning the wedding...

Mateo had his face buried in his hands. Literally everyone on the island was standing around in a jagged semicircle...

Mateo had already dealt with Zeferino and Nerakali. It was only fitting that their sister would jump into the game now...

They woke up at the break of dawn the next morning. He had the urge to gather everyone yet again to make sure Arcadia hadn’t lied about her plan. No, everyone was still here. Everyone, except for Baudin, of course...
Saying that Gilbert was Mateo’s favorite person in the world would be an overstatement, though he did care about him...

The good news was that Paige not only retained her memories of the missing Gilbert, but actually experienced a gain. The more she thought about him, especially on an emotional level, the clearer the flashbacks became for her...

It was like looking at himself in the mirror. Except that there was no mirror, and he was literally looking at himself...

Things were awkwardly silent when Mateo was sent back to his own body in 2114. He found himself lying on the ground, the movement of the sun making it clear that time had passed while they were in the past...

A not insignificant part of Mateo thought that maybe the driving course in the middle of the jungle never existed, or would be taken away by the time he returned to the timeline...

Over the course of the last however long it had been, Mateo learned to ignore his timejumps. This allowed him to sleep through the night without freaking out...

Over the course of the next couple of hours, the first immortal remained motionless on the ground. Mateo felt bad about hoping he was dead, but was also sort of over that kind of guilt...

In the morning, Mateo threw the three remaining bottles of the water into his bag and headed out. This could be home, but he also had the instinct to explore the rest of the island...

Installment 13
Coming soon...
