As my model stands blinking at the echo of my last words,

‘Run into the light now!’

I look down at my body from above;

  8. I love that first line – very cool.

  9. Whoops. At least they weren’t both vaporized. Maybe there’s a chance of getting deposited back again if it’s aliens and they discover they’ve made a mistake. Well written.
