David, an inventor of a time portal needed someone to go back in time to rescue his younger sister, she accidently ran through the portal and was stuck back in time and she didn't know it! After approaching two others that laughed at him thinking he was joking, David heard from his father that he was going to bid on Tee's mountains and convert them into retirement villas. He also heard how Tee fought a mountain lion and figured he was the mountain man that he needed to go get his sister, besides he would need the money David would offer him.
Tee first thought David wanted him to kill someone, but then soon learned the truth. If this was a joke, he would kill David but when David offered to pay all his back taxes if he would do it, Tee accepted!
Going through the portal, Tee immediately regretted coming for Joyce or Joy as the family called her. She was a stuck up, spoiled rich bitch that took an immediate disliking of him, especially when he tried to tell her to be quiet. No one told her to be quiet, she was a chatterbox that never shut up! Even her mother couldn't stop her from talking! Also, she was a vegeterain that didn't eat meat and he only planned on her eating what he did!
Tee, dropped out of school in the seventh grade, and had spotty education at the best. Living alone for many years after his grandparents died he was a loner and didn't know how to deal with this problem, Joy! He tolerated her the best he could for the three days they were trapped back in time, but started to fall in love with her being the first female he really had close contact with at twenty-nine years of age.
Going back through the portal she tripped him, wanting to leave him behind because she hated him. But the portal closed due to a Tornado on the other end cutting off the power, but one good thing came of it; Tee's right arm started having pain and spasms that caused him to cry out. After what seemed like an eternity to Tee, he could use his right hand again soon after the portal collapsed.
Stuck with her for how long, he didn't know but after saving her life when a Indian went to kill her, she mellowed some but being engaged to a rich man she wasn't about to fall in love with this poor, smelly,mean, cripple as she called him. The mean part was when he backhanded her for screaming when she woke up finding a snake sharing her bed.
When they finally returned to their own time, Joy had changed a lot learning to be less of a bitch and caring for Tee slightly, even though it was a love hate relationship tolerating each other because they had to!
Tee upon returning to his own time, discovers that the Tornado destroyed his home! Searching through the debris, Tee uncovers a long lost family secret. In the meantime, Joy is sitting on her front porch checking her cell phone messages. She comes across a video message from her roommate, her Fiance's sister that shows her Fiance with another woman!
