A Meeting in Seville

Author(s): Paul A Mendelson

Location(s): Seville

Genre(s): Fiction

Era(s): Modern looking back to 1980s

William and Luisa recognise `themselves’ but the youngsters think they’re simply a nice if fractious couple here in Seville in 1988. William is drawn to the appealing young woman his wife once was. Whilst Luisa looks in sadness at the couple these sweet lovers have become. But Sandy, William’s best-man was also in Seville that long-ago week. Was this when the fatal `attraction’ took hold? When William accidentally discovers that he has the ability to tamper with history, he contrives to ease the young Sandy out of Luisa’s life but soon finds his efforts turning into something more potent…
