The Advancement of Mateo Matic (2020)

This is the story of a couple who are only able to live for one day every year. Every 24 hours, they are sent forward in time exactly 365 days. The premise of volume 6 is yet to be determined. If you have not already, please read volume 1, volume 2volume 3, volume 4, and volume 5.

“I recognize this,” Mateo said as he was standing beside the spaceship that Pribadium built for them. “You made this?” He gently glided his hand over the hull. “Yes, so we could get back to the future,” she replied...

Mateo still needed some time to recover from whatever it was that brought him back here. The jump to the future didn’t help things. Leona was frustrated, because he didn’t appear to have any serious injuries, and there really wasn’t anything she could do...

November 29, 2267
Nerakali smiled when she saw that the Matics had agreed to stay on mission with her. They were ready to do what needed to be done, but that didn’t mean they didn’t have questions...

November 30, 2268
Mateo felt something hit him in the groin. It was clearly meant to wake him up, but even the pain wasn’t enough to stir him...

December 1, 2269
It was still 2268 when Mateo woke up from having been knocked out. He asked what had happened, but no one answered. As he was massaging his head, he struggled to get to his knees, and looked around...

December 2, 2270
Back in the first timeline that Mateo could remember, which people often referred to as Reality 2—even though there were many before it, and many since—his life was pretty normal...

December 3, 2271
Maeto Matic: Oh my God, it’s frickin’ freezing out here.
Leona Matic: Where are we...

December 4, 2272
Nerakali was dead silent after her bombshell about her and Arcadia’s father being the orchestrator of the hundemarke killings. She was never as talkative as her sister, but neither Mateo nor Leona could remember a time when she was speechless...

December 5, 2273
When Mateo was at his own memorial, a lot of things happened. None of it was bad—except for maybe that time he nearly choked The Delegator to death, so he could get Ramses back from the future—but it was important...

December 6, 2274
Most of what Athanaric Fury told them about Erlendr probably wasn’t all that useful. If the killer they were after was some kind of complete mystery, they probably could have used their knowledge of him against him in some way, but a lot of it Nerakali already knew...

December 7, 2275
Mateo immediately regretted bringing Leona and Nerakali back into this. They didn’t know they were going to be suddenly transported underwater, so they didn’t hold their breaths. Nerakali was immortal, so she was fine, but Leona wasn’t moving. She was lying on the ground, and she wasn’t moving...

December 8, 2276
You better make good use of me. Those words continued to repeat themselves over and over again in Mateo’s head. They didn’t know anything about this Jeremy Bearimy fellow, except that he was apparently named after a—no, not a character—but a concept in a TV show; a crazy way of perceiving the passage of time...

Installment 13
Coming soon...
