Haruhi Suzumiya meets John Smith
By Henry J. Cobb
The earth shook again and we barely kept our balance. We were out of time
and I had to act now. I pulled in the hand she had a death grip on and
placed my other hand on her shoulder to turn her away from the ruble of our
town to face me, "Haruhi Suzumiya, look only at me and listen to my
voice. I am John Smith."
"What? Are you mad Kyon? That can't be, it's. Well it's just
impossible. It's, it's true isn't it?"
The next quake tossed me onto my back and because of our partial embrace
she was pulled over on top of me. And then the world dissolved into
I blinked and looked up at a familiar forest clearing, "So the cycle has
repeated itself again?" I looked at her, "And you've returned to your
original body, with feathers and everything."
"As have you, my love," She reached over and tugged at my beard.
"Wait. This time I remember everything!" I looked in her new/old eyes.
"And so do I. This is December 1607, in what will one day be the American
state of Virginia."
I did a quick mental calculation, "That gives us 405 years until we hit
December 2012 again. Do you think we can save the world this time?"
"Of course we can," Pocahontas stood then reached down to take and hold my
hand as I got to my feet. She turned to me and said, "Now let's go find
that damned spring." She lead me past the spears of her tribesmen, but none
dared stop us.
Surely every American has reacted in the same way to the use of the alias.
