I have some good news and some bad news. The bad news is that I have to break up with you. The good news… I will tell you later.
I’m sorry. Something unexpected happened. I fell in love with someone else. I’m going to try to explain. This is why I’m writing this letter. I hope that I can find the words and that you will understand.
The person I am in love with is very special. I have never met anyone like her before. I didn’t even know that such a person could exist. You don’t know her, by the way. She is not from here. I mean, she is REALLY not from here at all. She is from…
I hesitate to tell you because you are not going to believe me. But I will tell you anyway since I have promised to always be open and honest with you. I don’t know the name of the place where she comes from, but I know one thing. She does not come from Earth.
I say “she” but this person could as well be a “he”. I’m just trying to make it less shocking to you, so I will continue to refer to this person as a “she”. She is not from this planet but it doesn’t mean that she is not human. She is very much a person, not of our race but definitely of our species. So she is an alien, but only in the sense that she originated somewhere else.
She came into my life a few years ago when I least expected it. I was not looking for anyone, I was very much dedicated to you. But when I met her, she showed me (proved to me) that she and I were destined to be together for the rest of eternity. So, I didn’t have much choice. At first I didn’t believe her, but after a while I realized that she was right and that it was time for me, for us, to move forward.
Now the good news: the girl I am in love with has a brother whom you are destined to meet sooner or later. That’s right, believe it or not. When you meet him you will fall in love with him. What happened to me is going to happen to you too. You won’t be disappointed, these people are out-of-this-world!
So right now I have to break up with you. My destiny has changed and yours will change too. Don’t despair because eventually this will be for the best for both of us. It might feel like an end but this is a new beginning. I am leaving you but we will meet again on the other side — where I will be married to my soul and you will be married to yours.
