Chapter 4
"Fanny, why are you here? You should be back in 1878!"
"You forgot your sweater," Fanny replied, sheepishly, holding up Alyssa's sweater. "Besides, I just want to spend more time with you and see what 2013 is like."
Alyssa was vexed. She knew her parents would be extremely worried and start looking for her if she wasn't home shortly after school, but President Hayes would send out the Secret Service to find his missing daughter. Alyssa knew the girls were in trouble with a capital T.
"How do you time-travel home without Edison's talking doll? I don't have one," Alyssa's voice was thick with anxiety.
Fanny picked up Alyssa's iPad, desperately trying to turn it on. Matter-of-factly, Alyssa hit the on button and unlocked the screen. Fanny was delighted by this simple act and giddy while listening to the theme music of the game Alyssa last played.
"Maybe we can use this," Fanny suggested.
