#37 my own event horizon

| r |

Dear Internet,

It has been my pleasure conversing with you. Your continued interest and help has been my steady rock in the absurd situation I have found myself in. I will be forever grateful to you. You are the beginning of a change that is going to sweep across the planet. Be brave, be bold, be kind.

Dear Nana,

Who would have thought I could possibly build a machine, not to mention this one. But I did it and I am heading home to you soon. If all goes well we will be having tea and I’ll tell you about my adventures in a few hours.

Dear Ben,

I hope you are ready to get back to 2019. I’ve left you the credentials to this website as a means to contact me. I’ll look it up in 2107 (or is it 2108 now?). Even if I can’t meet you directly, at least you can tell me if you made it back alright. Write about your experiences, if you like. I’d love to hear all about it. Sid says he misses you and looks forward to have you back at the cottage.

Dear Hanna,

When you read this, I will already be gone. Through all the troubles and worries, I am still thankful I landed here, because I got to know you and I am better for it. You showed me that there always have been warriors for the future and my present owes you and your kind so much. I wish I could show you, I wish I could take you with me, but I can’t. Right now I am going through the checklist Sid sent me before configuring the machine. While I was set on leaving without saying goodbye, towe left me a comment and convinced me that it wouldn’t be right. I am not sure if this is better, I will never know. If you believe nothing else, believe this, if I had any way to stay with you, nothing could stop me from it.

I will think of you always.

  1. Rielle,
    I can’t believe you did this to me. How could you!? I’ve been looking all over for you, before I found your note for this website. And you just leave me a cryptic goodbye? I can’t believe this. I thought there was something between us, or did you just lead me on and now got bored of me? Please tell me this is all just a bad joke? My heart hurts and I can’t stop crying. I miss you like crazy!! Come back!

  2. Dear Rielle,
    I finally brought myself to read through this whole diary. As much as I want to doubt you, and just believe that this is just a fucked up prank, the evidence is piling up and underscored by the mere fact that you are gone. In light of your story, a few things have begun to make sense that never added up before… I’ve found your strangeness very enticing from the start, but I always wondered how one could be so knowledgeable about scientific facts and so ignorant about popcultural ones. How a warm, open person could have so few friends and no family. The thing with your tattoos that I’ve never seen anywhere else… I am still sad, that you didn’t talk to me, but honestly, I get it now. I probably would have started a fight, just out of disbelief… I miss you every day.
