Plot, by Caged1Edit
EXT. Beach Calming music until we see boy then it goes slightly sinister and adventurous.
The thirteen year old boy is sitting on his own in the sand. The tide is coming in. Beach is like the one in HP7
The boys head is buried in his hands Close up on the boy. Bruises all over face and arms, tears rolling down in his face. He is Charlie Ashdown. He is soon to be, the time traveller. Slight glowing can be seen.
ZOOM OUT Towards the sea edge until we see slightly coming out of the sand a pocket watch. Charlie notices the sound, looks up, sees it and walks over and plucks it out of the sand.
Charlie; (Holding the watch to his mouth and whispering) If only my life went Tick Tock like a clock (he lets out a slight laugh) or I could just have a new one.
A soon as the last word parts his lips he disappears.
EXT. London Underground
Soldier (later found to be Slickham) is reading a letter and it is grabbed by a railway manager, who then jumps on the train. The soldier then starts running into tha train tunnel, behind the train.
An old soldier hands a young rich man a letter as he comes out of the bank. He opens it, scans it and calls someone. Can't here what he is saying over traffic
Exactly where Charlie disappeared

Charlie: I told Mr Auchery the answers when I arrived here. I don't see why I need to tell you again.
