I found a time machine next to a bin. I pressed a button and when I opened my eyes I saw a castle. Without moving, I was grabbed by my arm. I blacked out. Next thing I knew I was in a cell. Luckily, there was a broken bar. I squeezed through and ran. I was chased by a fat Henry VIII and a bunch of guards. I pressed the button on my machine and I opened my eyes. When I looked down, the machine was gone.
