"When you kiss me, all time stops. If that kiss could last forever, I know I'd never forget it. But we need to breathe, so talk to me, Malcolm. Tell me about this new world."

"The human world is smaller now, love. Only six thousand of us left anywhere, nearly all here on this planet or patrolling nearby. How long can a culture so diminished survive?"

"Malcolm, my world is smaller yet—it holds only the two of us. Its timescale is even more finite—it lasts just a day.

But I have all I need right here."
