While running away from a pair of bullies, Ben and Tessa discover an old elevator that takes them to strange new places. They have a number of mishaps and adventures as they try to put things to rights.Ok, the write up. Well, these are what we call Quick Flash stories, which means they aren’t very long and so you could probably read one to completion on your way to work which is what we had in mind when producing them.. People asked us 'can you write something I could start and finish on my way to work?' The two in this little presentation about the arenas are absolutely brilliant, one about ants and the other about a talented ice skater.The introduction is a cool idea about the end of the world and you should maybe read it because it may save your life one day. What is the end of the world anyway? I hear it mentioned here and there and in some other books. Is the 'world' the lump of stone that is our planet? How would we end it? I can’t tell you right now because it is Sunday and I don’t go to the fetish club until Wednesday where I am a mad scientist, so best ask me on a Thursday when I will have the answer (unless I manage to end the world that night). If I do, people who have to go to jobs they hate on Thursday morning will build a statue in my honor ... but how would they do that? The world has ended. If I were you, as a convenience precaution, I'd tie up any loose ends on or by Wednesday night. What if, on Weds night, everybody on earth puts all the plugs in all the sinks and baths and turn both taps on? Within a few hours the world would be flooded and most would drown. If you don't drown, your next water bill will be horrendous especially if you're on a meter. Be warned! The Water Board WILL get you.So, for now ... Is it the end of civilsation soon? I’ve no obvious idea, but it is probably not the end, but ‘change’. In that case if you’re one of the survivors, you will need to adapt ... us humans are pretty resilient. How to adapt? Well, I’ve stuck in my own idea in the QF download, and the great thing is, you can start doing it now.Have a nice day
