Prompt 9 - The Delegates

710 32 3

Travellers have had a long history of going back to the past. It even becomes common in the future. Some go to observe, some are assigned to change certain events, creating a domino effect. These assigned professionals, named the Delegates, monitor everyone's visit to the past. 

No one other than the Delegates can change any past event. 

For a school assignment, your protagonist is asked to observe  Abraham Lincoln (or any historical figure of your choosing) and ends up unravelling his family secrets by changing an action of the past and is taken to the the Court for investigation. 

The catch? He is a future Delegate.
