Question about English (US)

Hi guys! Are grammar nerds in da house? 😁
I'm currently reading "Aleph" by Paulo Coehlo and there is this structure I'm little bit confused about and would like to clarify it for myself.
The excerpt from the book if context is needed (I'm confused about the last sentence and particularly "will"):

Hilal shows me the photo on her cell phone, possibly taken just after dawn. It’s a photo of a long cloud in the sky.
“Do you see?”
Yes, I can see a cloud.
“We’re being accompanied on this journey.”We’re being accompanied by a cloud that will long since have disappeared forever.

Is "will" in this case used as "must"?

Thank you in advance for you answers! 🤗
