So, without further ado, here's the prompt for the week.
Create your unique story title in English ONLY
There is a new virus with a strange side effect. Those affected metabolize coffee at a bizarre rate, with the effect only appearing hours later. Not realizing you have this bug, you spend your morning enjoying several cups of coffee, but not feeling the kick. 3 hours later it all hits you at once.
Tell us how this goes.
A new special roast of coffee allows you to time travel.
However, there's a catch.
You can only use it while drinking the coffee. Once you set your cup down or finish it, you return home.
Where do you go, and how is the experience?
Remember, it's a "Creative Writing Challenge" - Be imaginative and original. Cover all the elements that make a good story.
Here is a link with some Creative Writing Tips and #Spillthebeans Writing Tips.
⚠️ #spillthebeans MUST be your first tag, and if your story does not cover any of the relevant scenarios presented, your post will be muted for fairness to other competitors.
