The Future of Us Chapter 14

By Asher, Jay and Mackler, Carolyn

Chapter 14


  • Josh bites the bullet before walking into Emma's room. Emma looks extremely uncomfortable and they exchange a quick "sorry" and "let's move on," spiced with a bit of attitude on Josh's part.
  • They admit that time travel (if this is time travel) is disappointing—it's not exciting like the movies, but about boring everyday stuff.
  • They get online and find that only a couple of things have changed on Facebook. For example, a comment that Emma made about mac and cheese being her favorite food has been replaced with lasagna being her favorite. Emma was really stressed while eating mac and cheese last night, which must have made her not like it so much; she remembers what Kellan told her about "ripples of change" (14.46) moving from the present to the future.
  • Unfortunately, she's still married to Jordan Jones Jr.
  • Now for Josh's future life: His vacation has been moved from Waikiki to Acapulco, which is strange, though at least he's still married to Sydney Templeton.
  • Emma finds another status about Jordan Jones Jr.; this time she's complaining that he spends all of her money.
  • The best find of the night, though, is their discovery of photo albums, specifically one called High School Memories.
  • In this album, they find pictures of a lake trip they that they just took in 1996… which they haven't even developed yet.
