i. video.

[The feed clicks on to reveal a young boy who clearly doesn't fully understand what he's looking at. The technology is already very advanced on its own, and he is much too young to have had access to any of it. He comes from the wrong year - you didn't get to have your very own iPhone back in 1999, no matter how rich your parents were.]

I didn't do anything wrong. [A pause. He breathes, trying hard not to plead. He doesn't want to sound pathetic.] My mom is going to worry about me. She worries a lot.

[The boy's voice is tense, but collected. An effort to sound calm when there is clearly no room for rationality. Do they know about him? Do they know what he can do?]

I'm not a hero. I'm just a kid.

[An inhale. An exhale. His shoulders drop, his brows knit together.]

I'd like to go home now.
