Day 245

Prompt: Your penpal lives on the opposite side of the universe.

I couldn't believe that I had a penpal who lived on across the universe. When I received my new friend's letter, I felt a connection with her like nothing I had ever experienced. We started writing back and forth all the time, sharing stories about our every day lives and experiences. This mystery figure's letters were full of incredible stories and things I hadn't even heard of before. There was so much we could learn from each other about our individual worlds, I had so many more questions, but then I made a daunting discovery. Considering we were on different planets, time moved slower here than it did here. In the week since I received the last letter, decades had past on her planet, and it hit me that she was already long gone. I haven't had a penpal from another planet since.
