It seems like his wife's illness was very costly and this deal could put them out of the red. However, he gets into a cab that is driven by a maniac, and Elliot crashes, and the next thing he knows he is floating around and finds himself in the lab of a scientist who studies the paranormal. Elliot asks the scientist to send him back so that he could finish the deal and make sure that his children are taken care of. Written by rcs0411@yahoo.com See less
