Dear Diary,

Hello, my name is Arthur. I live on the moon. I always feel so lonely because I live on my own with nothing to do except sleep. If anyone is reading this, you will never know how upset and sad I am. Every morning I wake up with the heaviest tears in my eyes. There hasn’t been one day that I haven’t cried for thirty seven years. Where I live, it feels like I’ve been deserted, never to be seen again. I have not seen a single human in thirty seven years and six days.

This morning, when I woke up, I was so down-hearted that I went to my chair. It was the chair that I had made when I was bored. At first, it was beautiful and clean, but now, over the years, it has been covered in dust and has been battered by its age. As I was treading along the dusty dry ground, I was reflecting on my life on Earth. But then I realised, ‘Why aren’t I on Earth? Why am I here?’ But then I just started sobbing again because I knew the answer.

Some days I wish I could have at least half an hour with another human. If someone came to me, my heart would pound with happiness and I would be the most grateful person ever. I would give anything to have another human.

Then, after a few minutes, (which felt like centuries) six balloons came flying down, but they were strapped to a gift, wrapped in red paper with a Santa Claus drawn on it. On the bottom of the gift, there was a letter saying, ‘Dear Man on the Moon, I wish you a Merry Christmas, love Abbey.’ This one letter drew joyful tears down my face. In the gift was a telescope, and then I saw the girl.

Love Arthur.
