Departing: Earth’s Only Hope
by Joynell Schultz
Live or die, stay or go, the choice is meant to be easy…
I can either board an alien spaceship with my fellow criminals or rot in prison on a dying Earth.
The spacecraft’s captain, a handsome alien who looks remarkably human, has been visiting me in my dreams for over a year. He has given me the companionship I need during my time locked up in solitary confinement and the way he holds me in the dark makes me forget the Earth is on the brink of extinction.
In the midst of another ice age, humanity will be wiped out soon, but the alien spacecraft gives hundreds of us another option. If I get on that ship, I have a chance at surviving.
And I’m a survivor.
