How can there even be a shadow in a brightly lit supermarket like this?

You stare into the deep shadow of the telephone booth for a moment, recognizing something peculiar in the inky blackness and the sharp edges, the way it lies across the ground more real than real. A breath of sweet air, like spring, warms your skin.

The shadow flares as you set foot into it. The phone booth is to your left and the aisle is to your right, never mind the space that isn't there between them, and then never mind anything because blackness has taken the world, never mind, never world, not even you, never you --

-- and then an old guy smacks you in the behind, growling "C'mon! Move along! Quit hogging the aisle."

You look. The shadow is gone, and with it the sweet scent of springs long past. Deep inside you, a tiny flower that was once mighty sheds its final petal and withers away.

On to the next aisle.

*** So close, and yet so far ***

But wait...

You feel a tremendous wrench – the hand of God coming down to wipe clean the temporal chalkboard. The world dissolves, and then quickly floods back into existence, restoring its state as it was before you made your move.

But somehow, things aren't set up exactly the same as last time....

Late Thursday night. You've had a hard day and the last thing you need is this: shopping. Luckily, the place is pretty empty and you're progressing rapidly.

On to the next aisle.

The aisle stretches to the north, and back to the south. The shelves on either side of you block your view of the rest of the supermarket, with only the brightly colored aisle markers visible.

You have stopped your trolley next to the pasta section, bright plastic bags full of pale skin-tone shapes.

There is a brunette woman a few meters ahead, filling her trolley with sauces.

A shiny metal phone booth sits in the center of the aisle.

Your move:

*Secret option!
Super-secret option!
