A peep in the future

Prompt –

© 2015, Barbara W. Beacham

Finish the story that begins with: “The petroglyphs told the story of an unusual event.”

The petroglyphs told the story of an unusual event. Three men and a woman got a glimpse of knowledge that lay deep in the womb of future.

The four were desirous of knowing the purpose of their journey through time and space. Unable to achieve their goal they asked for help from the wise-man of their clan. The wise-man told them that only the Powers of the Universe (PoU) can divulge this great secret.

The four prayed to the powers according to their customs. One day the PoU noticed these four and smiled at their quest. A particularly benign power blessed them with a peep in to their final destiny. They saw all sorts of animals and plants emanate from curlicued-ladders

They recorded their destiny in stone and fulfilled it in 1953 …….. thousands of years after their quest.

In 1962 James Watson (b. 1928), Francis Crick (1916–2004), and Maurice Wilkins (1916–2004) jointly received the Nobel Prize in physiology or medicine for their 1953 determination of the structure of deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA). Wilkins’s colleague Rosalind Franklin (1920–1958), who died of cancer at the age of 37, was not so honored because the Nobel Prize can only be shared by three scientists
