LILV (Lonely In Lizard Valley) #3: The Elderly Couple

In the town of Lizard Valley, there’s one news station that also doubles as a newspaper publication building. There isn’t much news to discuss these days since everyone’s in a time loop. The station decided to do a featurette where they would interview different citizens of the town with their thoughts about being in a time loop. The station uploads the videos to online platforms, so the world can see the situation that they’re in. The videos have garnered plenty of attention with average views climbing in the millions. Today’s uploaded video features an elderly couple that’s happily married–the Jensens.

The Jensens are the elderly couple that Professor Kearns talked about in his interview with the Culver City newscaster. Kearns despises that the Jensens are so cheery about the time loop. In the video, longtime Lizard Valley newspaperman Joe Schmidt conducts the interview online via his camera and the Jensens join him online. Schmidt has on a white dress shirt with a red tie. He’s in his office with pictures of his degrees on the wooden wall behind him. He has nicely combed gray hair with a black mustache. The Jensens are sitting in their backyard. Mrs. Jensen has on a straw hat with her curly gray hair flowing downwards. She’s wearing a green dress where only her pale arms are revealed. She’s heavy set, while Mr. Jenson is smaller with his frame. He has on sunglasses with slicked back white hair. He has on a green polo with khaki pants. They’re sitting under their sun roof with their pool and water shining in the back.

The camera shot begins with Schmidt in his office.

“Today, we’re talking to the Jensons in an another installment of the “Looping Lives of Lizard Valley.” The Jensons are the elderly couple that Professor Kearns hinted at in his interview with the Culver City news. How do you two feel about the professor’s comment?”

Both of the Jensons shake their heads.

“Awful comments,” said Mrs. Jenson.

Mrs. Jenson looks at Mr. Jenson and back at the camera.

“We are enjoying this loop. We’re immortal practically. I’m sorry that the professor is sick, but he shouldn’t talk about us who enjoy the loop.”

Schmidt nods in agreement.

“How does it feel to be close to immortality?”

The Jensons smile.

“We feel so young and vibrant. We don’t have to worry about our health declining now. How do you feel, Schmidt?”

“I’m okay. Wish this would’ve started when I was younger.”

They all chuckle together. Schmidt asks the couple one more question.

“Any words for the people watching that’s not from Lizard Valley?”

“Yes. Come here if you wanna live forever. I mean, the day starts the same every time, but the rest of it is up to you.”

“Alright. Special thanks to the Jensons for joining us! Please tune in next week for a new web episode. “
