1. “I’d rather die.”

“I’m sure you would, but sadly, that’s not one of the options.”

2. It doesn’t make sense to send humans to survey a mostly empty galaxy, so the computers cannibalize the asteroid belt and create massive fleets of tiny robotic ships instead.

3. For a moment, the mess isn’t so bad, but then the wind kicks up again and scatters the trash across the courtyard with an almost vindictive glee.

4. Vampires fight with momentum rather than weaponry. Moving faster than the eye can follow, they parkour around the city, slinging their opponents into walls, parked cars and, if they’re lucky, fences with pointed tops.

5. Starting on your tenth birthday and every five years after, you get fifteen minutes to talk to the you living five years in the future. I’ve been dreading this year’s conversation because I know this time it won’t be me on the other side of the mirror.
