Private Flight Record
Planet Prince, ENKI
As I boarded the spaceship and lifted off the Earth, I couldn’t help but marvel at the wonders of space travel. Despite my countless voyages, the feeling of weightlessness still captivates me. As I soared through the darkness, the vastness of the universe lay before me, the stars twinkling like diamonds in the distance. It is always a sight of bewilderment!
After roughly six hours of travel, I will finally reach the moon. When I step out onto the surface, the brightness of the lunar landscape will be rewarding. It was always a sight that never ceased to amaze me – the rugged terrain, the craters and mountains, all bathed in the eerie light of the Earth’s reflection. I wonder how it looks now, being shaped into a satellite almost 100 times bigger than before.
Despite the beauty that will surround me, my mind will be elsewhere. Ninursag, my chief scientist and secret lover, is there on a crucial mission. I have come to supervise her performance, but my heart feels heavy with emotions I can never reveal.
As I watched her work, I always felt a mix of pride and longing. She is brilliant, her mind sharp as a razor, and her dedication to the mission is unwavering. But my feelings for her ran deeper than just professional admiration. The thought of her makes my heart race, and I know I have to keep my love for her hidden, buried deep inside where no one can see.
I cannot help but to steal glances at her, taking in every detail of her beauty. Her eyes shine like stars in a night sky, and her smile lits up the darkness like the moon itself. But as much as I long to hold her in my arms, I know that we can never be together, not in this lifetime at least.
I remember the day I first met fair Ninursag like it was yesterday. We were both studying the Igiggi alien race and evaluating the effects of genetic alteration and manipulation. She was so intelligent, and her passion for science was infectious. As we spent more and more time together, I found myself falling in love with her. It was a relentless feeling!
But there was a problem. Ninursag was promised to marry my brother, Prince Hu. I tried to suppress my feelings for her, knowing that it was wrong to interfere in their planned relationship. Despite my efforts to move on, my heart still longed for Ninursag. We continued to work together, and our bond only grew stronger. I would steal glances at her while we worked, trying to hide my feelings for her.
As much as I loved her, I knew that I could never act on my feelings. Ninursag was loyal to Nibiru and my father, and I couldn’t betray my own brother’s fate like that.
It was a difficult time for me, but I knew that I had to keep my feelings hidden. As time passed, Ninursag and I remained very close, but we always kept our love a secret.
Now, as I sit here, on my way to visit Ninursag on the moon, I can’t help but think about the past. My love for her still burns bright, but I know that it can never be. I can only hope that our friendship will endure, and that our work together will continue to push the boundaries of science and exploration.
If my father, Anu the Great Architect of Nibiru, found out about my forbidden love for Ninursag, he would be furious and feel betrayed. He has always been strict about following the rules and maintaining order in our society, after all the future of our corporation depends on this. Our people are expected to follow the path laid out for them by their birthright, and going against that is not tolerated.
But at the same time, I want to believe my father would understand my feelings. Ninursag is not just any woman – she is the most brilliant scientist I have ever met, and her beauty and intelligence captivate me. However, our society is not ready for such a union and betrayal. My father would be torn between his duty as a ruler and his love for his sons.
I can only hope that our love remains a secret, and that we can continue our work without any interference from our society or my father. I know it is a risk to continue seeing each other, but the heart wants what it wants.
