Victor's Watch

It should have been just a routine procedure. Juliet should have been on her way to work by now. Instead she was in the hospital coffee shop with an old man who wasn’t making any sense. Juliet could never have imagined all she was going to learn about herself as Victor took her on a journey back in time.

Victor’s Watch 1 - The focal point of the coffee shop was a full height gothic window of translucent white glass that flooded the area with bright shafts of light. The space gave the impression that it looked both backwards into history and anticipated a future of content stability.
Victor’s Watch 2 - Juliet looked at Victor and realised that the look on her face must clearly indicate that she thought he was totally mad...
Victor’s Watch 3 - It was never going to be easy looking at yourself lying in a bed specifically set at a height to allow nursing staff to attend to your every need...
Victor’s Watch 4 - The elderly man stood in the middle of the recently disturbed brown earth leaning on the wooden hoe and looking up at the sun...
Victor’s Watch 5 - Victor could walk out of the Chapel but he found he was happiest when he remained with its walls...
Victor’s Watch 6 - Juliet opened her eyes, shocked and disorientated at what she had just witnessed. “I don’t understand, have I blocked great sections of my life from my memory?”
Victor’s Watch 7 - Victor’s existence in the chapel had established a rhythm and routine that satisfied his need for orderliness...
Victor’s Watch 8 - Juliet closed her eyes in preparation for the enveloping darkness, on opening them again, the blackness was all around her, she was sitting on the hard wooden base of the wardrobe...
Victor’s Watch 9 - There was no discernible energy coming from her limbs which felt heavy, flat and lethargic, as if they had spent a considerable amount of time in one position.
Victor’s Watch 10 - Juliet was ready now for answers, not more questions.
