The Astronaut

[the silence of the radio is almost haunting in the space where nothing is predictable. maybe it's a glitch, the astronaut thinks. but, the glitch never last for minutes. it's been minutes, right? the concept of time is very different than that on earth. and the astronaut hasn't acclimatized to it yet. finally, the static returns with a faint hum and scrapped noises]

The Astronaut: Finally, guys! I thought I lost you'll!

[no reception]

The Astronaut: Guys, it's not funny. Get over it. For how long was the connection lost?

[no reception]

The Astronaut: How am I supposed to come back home with all this silence? Tell me I didn't lose my home, did I?
