The house, a 200-year-old stone cottage dating from the 19th century, stood alone
on the road outside the village of Lowick. All was dark and quiet on that Saturday evening:
the owners of the cottage were out, and very few cars came that way.
Inside, the house was nicely decorated, warm and cosy, yet at same time a house
of today. Every corner and surface downstairs contained a gadget of some kind: by the
open fireplace in the living room was the latest home cinema system with DVD player; in
the kitchen the microwave oven gleamed on the work surface, and the dishwasher did its
useful work quietly by the sink. The washing machine waited silently for its next load of
dirty clothes, and the vacuum cleaner slept peacefully in the cupboard under the stairs.
Upstairs, Susie’s beloved laptop lay on its bag next to her bed. It was her
connection with friends all over the world, and also what she used for work. In the bedside
cupboard was William’s photographic equipment: his camcorder and his digital camera
with which he recorded all their favourite holiday moments. At least that hobby gave him
a break from the stresses of work.
Suddenly the quiet in the living room was disturbed by a loud whooshing noise and
a flash of bright green light. A youngish man, about 25, with a beard and long hair
appeared. He looked intelligent, although somewhat confused. He shook his head as if
to clear his thoughts and looked slowly around him. Obviously the magic had worked-
good old Wizard Ebeneezer-and he was inside someone’s house. The time machine was
programmed to send him to the 21st century but was this it?
The young man, Zed, picked up a long black thing from a small table. It had
different-coloured buttons on it. Was it a child’s toy? Zed tried pressing the buttons, and
without warning, a picture flashed onto the big black box in the corner, and the sound of
people laughing loudly hit his ears! Quickly he hid behind a large armchair. But then all
the noise faded, and some music came on. Zed realised that the living room was empty.
Then he looked at the box in the corner, and there were some people having a great time.
But they weren’t in the living room, they were inside the box! Zed gave up trying
understand and went into the kitchen.
At that moment, a loud ringing noise came from the hall. Zed raced out of the
kitchen and found where the noise was coming from: a small white thing with numbers
on it. Slowly, Zed put out his hand and picked it up. He heard a voice saying, ‘Hello! Hello!
