It’s Not Your Time

It's Not Your Time is one of a series of 100 word stories.


“Name and date of birth please, sir.”

“Michael Peter Jones, 21st March 1962”

“And when did you die Mr Jones?”

“Sometime this morning, I think. On the High Street by the synagogue. I got hit by a bus.”

“Oh dear, it appears there’s been a dreadful mistake. It should have been a Mr Peter Michael Jones who died this morning, not you. You’re not due here for a good few years yet. This is most unfortunate. If you’ll take a seat Mr Jones I’ll see about getting you back into your earthly body. Let’s just hope it’s not too late.”

  1. Hm, would he even want to go back? If there was a gate like that, I’d be too curious to see what’s next. Let Mr. Peter Michael Jones enjoy his escape.

    1. Trouble is, once through the gate you might not like what’s on the other side by which time there’s no going back!
      Thanks for dropping by.


      1. If a mistake has been made, it has to be by a clerk. We can’t expect God to err, do we?
