“Don’t point that pistol at me, young Nikola,” he said as the gears slowed, the cracks in the pipes stopped spitting boiling water, and the computational engines ceased their clacking.  “You didn’t bring me back from the future only to kill me.”

I stared at the old man.  “No, I brought you back to know what the future holds.”

“The future has too much Tom Edison in it.”  Nikola Tesla pulled out his own identical Colt. “Let’s go.”

    It took me a while to get this story. I think it’s because when I hear Tesla, I think of Tesla Motors. Which doesn’t make any sense in this case, but it’s still what I thought of.

    I also wonder if Tesla is going to kill Edison, or they’re going to have a shootout, or something.
