As Jim was thinking about who to test the remote on, there was a knock at the door. Turning to the door, he then said, "Come in." and the door opened. That's when he spotted his mother coming in with a pleasant smile on her face. "Hey Jim." She said in a delightful voice, "I got some good news." "What is it?" ask Jim feeling a little confused by his mother's voice. His mother had a warm smile on her face and answered, "Your grandmother is visiting from the old folks home for today. Isn't that great news?" Jim then turned around and couldn't believe what he was hearing. His grandmother visiting today, that was unexpected. "But why his grandma coming?" he asked sounding really confused, "Shouldn't she remain in the retirement home since she's too old to get out?" His mother tilted her head and said, "Well yes. But apparently the doctor insisted that she comes home just to be with her family and she really wanted to see us so bad. Besides, you know that she doesn't have much left to live and we need to make her feel comfortable. Right?" Jim looked on and lowered his head in grief. "Yeah... I know..." he said feeling a little depressed. His mother then smiled and said, "Great! I'm going to get everything ready for your grandmother. She'll be here shortly." She then left her son's room and get ready for her mother.
Meanwhile, Jim looked on and still couldn't believe it. Why would his grandmother come for a visit when she should stay at the retirement home? That's the question that's circling in his head. Ever since he was a kid, his grandmother was so kind to him. She always baby-sit him for years before he became a teenager, help him with his homework, even come every Thanksgiving and Christmas. Those were some good memories. But now times have changed. Since his grandmother is 95, her health was slowly deteriorating. In fact, the doctors discovered that she has only a few years to live. And even though the family tired their best to keep her happy, they were still grieving and knew it would only be a matter of time. Jim took the pain the most as she takes good care of him since day one. If only he could save her life and make her live longer then ever. If only...
Looking down at the remote, an idea popped into his head. Jim always loves his grandmother he would do anything to save her life. But what if he makes his grandmother younger. That's when it hit him. He had created a remote that can age or regress a person at any age he sees fit. Meaning that he would make an old person younger, including his grandmother. He could actually save his grandmother's life with this device and make her live longer. He even also added features that would make her regress mentally and change reality. That way if she regresses at a different age, she nor the entire family won't know the difference. It would be perfect. Thinking about this, he started setting some things up while getting ready for his grandmother.
An hour later, someone was ringing the doorbell to the front house. Jim's mother was the first to answer it as she walked down saying, "I'm coming!" The moment she opened the door she was greeted by an elderly woman that's 95 years of age. Her body was almost thin and worn with her breasts that look almost saggy and knobby knees on her thin legs. Her face was filled with wrinkles and tired eyes and her white hair with a few streaks of gray were all permed up. She was wearing an elderly floral dress that goes down to above her ankles and a pair of green slippers on her withered feet. She also had a walker in her hands being that she couldn't stand up straight anymore. This woman's name was Julia Strenton, but for her grandkids, they always call her Grandma.
Jim's mother looked on and was happy to see her again. "Mom! Welcome home!" she said as she gave her mother an embracing hug. The moment she let go of the hug, Julia smiled and said, "Thank you deary. Thought it would be okay I drop by for a visit. So how is everyone doing today?" The mother smiled and said, "Pretty fair I believe. My eldest son is going to be a take part of his college football team. The youngest is always busy with college and his new inventions. And your granddaughter, well, she's starting to grow up now. She's now this tall." She then hand down to the level of what her daughter's height is like right now. The grandmother smiled and said to her daughter. "Ah... That's just great. My how my grandkids have grown up. Why it feels like just yesterday that the boys were little themselves and my granddaughter wasn't born yet. Boy time flies when you're old." "Yeah... You have a point there." Jim's mother responded, "Why don't you come in? I bet you are tired after your little trip." Julia smiled and answered to her daughter, "I would love to." She slowly walked into the house and headed to the living room while the mother closed the door behind her.
"Now the kids are a little busy today and my husband won't be back from work for will the next few hours." She started to explain to the grandmother. "So why don't you sit back and watch some TV until dinner. I'm sure they would give you the time on catching up." The grandmother then rested on the rocking chair in the living room and rocked back and forth. "Oh, I'm sure they are just getting ready for me." Julia then said to her daughter, "After all, they haven't seen me in a while. They'll come sooner or later." The mother nodded and headed to the kitchen, "Well, I'm going to start preparing dinner. Call me if you need anything." As she left, Julia turned on the TV and watched her favorite Soaps. But as she was watching, someone was watching her. That someone was Jim himself.
The moment he heard the doorbell, he silently walked downstairs and hid at the hall, waiting for his mother to leave. So far, he already got his remote ready for grandmother. He picked the destined age he needed to save Julia's life and would make her live longer. He even set the metal and reality change as well that way his grandmother or anyone in the family but himself wouldn't notice the changes. With his mother gone, he decided to do this now before she comes back.
Taking a deep breath, he got out of the hall and approached his grandmother. "Hey Grandma!" Jim then said, "Long time no see." Julia turned to the sound of the voice and saw her young grandson approaching him. Smiling, she then said, "Why hello Jim. It's been too long. How long since I last saw you? Over a year? My how much you have changed. You now look like a handsome young man." Jim rubbed the back of his head and couldn't help but to chuckle about it. "Yeah... Time sure flies." He said as he sat on the sofa next to grandma's rocking chair. As he sat Julia kept on watching her soaps. This gave Jim the opening he needed.
Pointing the remote at his grandma, he pushed the button and a wave of energy hit her. The second she was hit, she felt a strange heat wave from within her body and felt a little hot. "Is it getting a little toasty in here?" she said as she flapped her dress a little bit. Turning to Jim, she told him, "Can you please turn the air condition on for me deary? I'm starting to feel a little faint." Jim nodded and said to her, "Of course Grandma, I'll take care of it." So he left her of a second and turn the air condition on to keep her cool. When he got that out of the way, he returned to the sofa, saying to her, "Okay. Got the air condition working. You can relax now." Julia immediately relaxed to told him, "Thank you deary. I'm starting to feel better. In fact, I haven't felt this good in years."
When Jim looked at her, he soon notices something different about his grandmother. From what he could understand is that Julia was looking less tired and a little more healthy. But she was still a little old, being that she's ninety, five years younger then a little while ago. Still, she continued to get younger by the second. So Jim sit back and watch as his grandmother regressed right before his eyes. But the question is how old will his grandmother be?
