    It might help if you would write your question in actual English. Like spelling "correct" correctly, and not using meaningless phrases like "future tense of present tense."

    You are creating the story's reality through your point of view character, whether you use first person (I, me) or third (s/he, her/him), present tense or past. All times, including time travel to the past or future, are the POV character's now.

    So you would make it clear to the reader that time travel has happened, then proceed in the same verb tense as the rest of the story.

    As Douglas Adams once pointed out, the problem with time travel is that no-one's worked out the grammar.

    You ought to travel back in time 20 minutes. That way, you might be able to post a question that makes sense. "Is it *current* to use future tense of present tense when referring to something?" What the Hell is that supposed to mean?
