The man that is still unsure of the current situation is confused by his current circumstances, but he nevertheless overheard those strangers clear and distinct conversation about football. Something about retraining a Winger as a Wingback.

Football? Why would they be talking about football?

The mans bewilderment grew to no end, not understanding and realising any of the current circumstances that are occurring in front of him. But then he heard someone speak, yet this time it seems it wasn just a conversation about football. It was directed at a person.

”Kai? ”

The gentlemen sitting near the opposite end of the table spoke, staring straight at the eyes of the man to which the words are targeted.

”You alright? You seem absent-minded today. ”

Kai immediately refocused, stopping his internal deliberation of the current situation. He is perplexed, but he could still recognise his name being called, albeit by a stranger that he has no recollection of.

”Im… ”

A soft-toned voice spoke, a bit shaky in tone as Kai appears to be restless, fidgeting with no ends.

But he was too distracted to conjure up an answer. Instead, his memories seems to flow like a flood, a heavy torrent that came crashing in as Kai searched through the decades of archived memories.

Hugo… Lanier… were they not whom I worked with at the football club? But that was years ago, why would I see them here right now, at this moment?

Kai looked at the surroundings once more, the unmistakable staff meeting room slowly became familiar as details of the room he finally recognised. The people in the room were Hugo, and Lanier, both coaches for the team, and Marley, the manager that he longed to admire.

How? Just how are they all here, at this moment in time, at this location?

Kai rose from his seat and made a dart for the meeting room exist. He felt nauseous, sick to the core in a way as things are just too much for him to handle. Yet, as he attempted to exist, he realised his body appeared to be lighter, much more agile than he recounted.

”Where are you going? ” Hugo called out, noticing one of the coaching staff headed towards the door.

”I… I need some fresh air. ” Kai replied without looking back, not in the least bit concerned about the rudeness and the animosity everyone in the room would feel.

He made his way out of the meeting room, and then he was sure that his body appears to be in finer condition than he could remember. Kai looked at his hands, not in the faintest could he detect any wrinkled skin. Kai looked at his body, no longer was he obese, but he had a youthful physique that released a message of health.

Impossible. Kai thought in his head.

He exited the meeting room and made his way across the interior with some sense of familiarity. The corridors and the various rooms within the inner structure, Kai still vaguely remember the layout of the building.

When Kai exited through the main door of the building, he found an open lawn kept in pristine condition by the clubs groundsman. The clear white marks of the football field were apparent to everyone observing. An organic grass pitch suited for football, just as Kai had last remembered.

Glancing around, surrounding the multiple football pitches were various buildings that Kai still has a recollection of. Yet, he still didn dare believe he was truly at the club he once was a coaching staff of. The sun was still high in the azure sky, with still plenty of time until sunset.

Kai inspected further, and on the football pitch were various players. The players that were on the pitch were wearing their club training shirts but with different colours, and bibs to separate themselves into two teams.

A clatter of shouting, loud communication, and cheers between players transmitted like music to Kai as he listened in to the friendly match ongoing with the youths. He walked closer, with the spirit of the players drawing him in like a current.

Kai stood on the very corner of the pitch, a few meters from the technical areas where the managers, coaching staff, and medical professionals would normally station during matches. He observed the details of the match, livid and boiling in excitement as he couldn believe he could dabble in the very sport he yearn for.

But even more surprising were the youths that were playing. Those players… how are they so young. So much time has passed that Kai couldn even believe, couldn accept that everyone he has observed appears to be from a distant past.

Everything. Everything. Was the past.

Kai sunk his face into his palm, slowly coming into the circumstances and making sense of the situation.

That he had travelled back to the past.
