When Anna first meets Bennett, she’s immediately drawn to him, but she can’t figure out if he’s into her. Sometimes, he seems interested. Other times, not so much. When he finally admits that he can time travel—and that he’s from the future—she understands why he’s been acting kind of funny. It’s 1995 and he’s from 2012. At any minute, he could be knocked back to where he belongs. But until then, Anna and Bennett decide to take advantage of Benett’s powers and have a few time-traveling adventures together.
