Basically, I created worm hole between D.C. and London, very Star Trek level stuff here. The gateways are located in two apartments that I own on both ends in the guest room closets, I guess I had some Narnia influences there too.
I’ve never tested it with a person before, but I can’t look back now. I look out of my window and down onto the Mall of D.C. one more time, hopefully not my last, and step into the closet. There is a sucking, swirling, falling sensation and then I feel myself slam against something hard. I look up and see a doorknob and turn it, opening it up to the guest room in my London flat. YES! It worked! I’ll save so much money on airfare now!
