In Which We Learn How Olivia Got Her Job

Miss Olivia Carstairs makes a bid for the job with the Professor.

Some years back, I wrote this very short story, almost a snipped, for a blog post. I’ve lost the link to the blog post, but I did keep the snippet. Or very short story. 

Olivia first appeared out of my imagination when I was working on a short story for an anthology. The short story grew into a novella that debuted as Tangled in Time. Thankfully this snippet resisted all efforts to make it longer. 

An interesting side note to the story, it was partly inspired by some video I found from the time period of people riding the EL (elevated train). 

I hope you enjoy this glimpse into how Olivia came to work for the professor!
