->"Day before yesterday I saw a rabbit, and yesterday a deer, and today, you."

A short story by American sci-fi writer Robert F. Young.

The story is set in 1961, the year it was published. On vacation alone in the woods, Mark, a married middle-aged lawyer, encounters Julie, a woman in her early twenties who claims to be a time-traveler from 240 years in the future. Although Mark doesn't believe her story at first, he becomes fascinated with the mysterious young lady and they quickly fall in love, despite Mark's misgivings about being unfaithful to his wife.

To say much more at this point would be to head into spoiler territory, so we recommend you go and [[http://www.wattpad.com/121643 read it for yourself]]. [[TearJerker Bring a hanky.]]

Has a freeware VisualNovel adaptation which an be downloaded [[http://www.mediafire.com/?ylyuzm4zwuw here]].

As noted on their respective entries, this story was part of the inspiration for ''Anime/RahXephon'', and got a ShoutOut in ''VisualNovel/{{Clannad}}'' and ''VideoGame/{{Portal 2}}''.

Most definitely NeedsMoreLove.

* SocietyMarchesOn: For a woman of the 23rd century, Julie sure does talk and act like one from [[TheSixties 1961]]. She's "studying to be a secretary," even.

* {{Zeerust}}: Julie's description of the year 2201 (to say nothing of her own personality) sounds slightly quaint by modern standards, though YourMileageMayVary.
