Star-Crossed Lovers in Space and Time

Lost Love Found in the Infinite Expanse of the Universe

By MAKING REAL MONEYPublished 9 months ago 3 min read

Once upon a time there was a man named Thomas who lived alone in his small cottage in the woods. He spent his days working as a lumberjack and his nights reading books about space and time travel. He dreamed of one day being able to explore the stars, but he never thought it would actually happen.

Thomas, a solitary lumberjack living in a tiny cottage in the woods, spent his days cutting wood and his nights dreaming of distant galaxies, hoping that one day he would be able to explore them.

One night, while Thomas was gazing at the stars through his telescope he noticed something unusual - an object moving quickly across the sky. Amazed, Thomas watched as it stopped and hovered in place for a few moments before moving off again.

After several more evenings of watching, Thomas decided to take a chance and follow the mysterious object on its nightly journey through the sky. He built himself a rocket ship and set off into space, not sure what he would find or what he would do when he got there.

After weeks of traveling through space, Thomas finally arrived at his destination - an alien world that seemed to exist outside of time and space itself. As he explored this strange place, Thomas stumbled across something even more extraordinary - a beautiful woman sitting in an open field with her eyes closed and her hands extended as if she were meditating.

Mesmerized by her beauty, Thomas went up to introduce himself but she didn't seem to hear him or acknowledge his presence at all; she just kept sitting there with her eyes closed and her hands outstretched as if she were in another world entirely.

Convinced that she was some kind of angel sent down from heaven itself to guide him on his journey, Thomas stayed by her side for days on end telling her stories about himself and listening intently to whatever wisdom she had to offer in return - though admittedly she never said much of anything at all!

Eventually, after weeks had passed by like minutes, Thomas realized that he was deeply in love with this mysterious woman from another world whom he could never truly know or understand; yet still he stayed by her side every day until one day when it was time for him to leave this strange planet and go back home to Earth once more...

"I'm sorry I have to go," said Thomas sadly as tears welled up in his eyes,"but I promise I will come back one day." But before the woman could answer him back, a bright light suddenly appeared out of nowhere engulfing them both until it faded away leaving nothing behind but silence..

Back on Earth again many years later living alone once more, Thomas often found himself looking up into the night sky thinking fondly of that mysterious woman from another world whom he had met so long ago - wondering if they were still connected somehow despite the vastness of space between them...

Finally after many years had passed by since their first encounter with each other, one night while gazing up into the heavens once again through his telescope; Thomas saw something very familiar coming towards him from deep within outer space - it was that same mysterious woman flying towards him faster than ever before!
