Final Entry

Earth Diary After all
this time. I’m home. The place
looks pretty much as I left it, aside from a layer of dust and some milk I
rather unfortunately forgot was in the fridge before I left. Oh, and

Earth Diary So. I
have some questions if you don’t mind. “Fire
away.” Where are
we going. “Somewhere
safe.” What will
happen when we get there? “We’ll be
safe.” Is Mary

Earth Diary Mary, are
you dead? If you
aren’t dead then please answer. If you
are dead… well. I have so
many questions. How did you know when the pod would land. Why did you tell me

Earth Diary “You what ?” “You said
I was going to eat a bullet.” “It was
poetry!” Doesn’t
poetry usually rhyme. “Shut up

needed th...

Earth Diary But the
part I don’t understand is… “Shut
up.” But… “Time’s
up, I’m afraid. It’s execution time.” There’s

Earth Diary “Money.” …What? “You
asked why we did it.” Money?
You sent Mary and I into deep space, built an entire city, and hundreds of

Earth Diary BEEP,
BEEP, BEEP Oh dear
God. They put in a new alarm clock and it’s the same alarm as on my spaceship
