The Silver Scepter...
Penny smiled at
Simon and turned her attention to the strands. Just as before, the
strands from the past were colored yellow, while those of the present
were blue. She carefully sorted them, keeping the past in her left hand
and the present in her right. For such a small fold, there were a lot
more yellow strands than she expected, almost as if they’d somehow
multiplied since she started.
About halfway through her
task, every strand she grabbed became impossibly entangled with every
other strand. Every time she pulled a strand, the entanglement
tightened. Within a few moments, she’d created an impossible knot.
She took a deep breath and studied the knot, trying to find
solution. She found a pair of yellow strands that looked promising, but
when she pulled them, the knot only tightened more. She began to wonder
if this was a true Gordian knot and if the only solution was to somehow
cut it apart. She had no idea how to cut a time strand, much less what
would happen if she did.
