The man who built a time machine and went back to kill a ruthless tyrant who had been responsible for millions of deaths, returned to a world where no one had ever heard about this tyrant.
Initially, the man was proud of his action, having saved millions of lives. But the fact that he had killed another human being had changed him. Torn by guilt he turned himself in as a murderer. But they refused to arrest him as the crime had long since passed the statute of limitations.
He joined a convent, finding a certain level of solace in prayer and penitence. But he never fully recovered.Had he damaged his soul in committing the murder? Had killing another person wrecked his life for good?
That seemed to be the only right conclusion.
