A 13-year-old boy from Changsha in China’s Hunan Province ran away
from home, after leaving a letter claiming that he was returning to his
home star, where he is a 139-year-old prince.
In the letter he
wrote to his parents last Sunday, Lei Zhihong declared that he was
actually the Star and Night Prince of Bisuomu, an alien star 600 billion
light years away from the Earth.
The letter added that the
couple’s child had died in kindergarten and he had disguised himself to
look like the child, after his spaceship was forced to land on Earth.
Zhihong further wrote that he now had to return to his home star now,
because "something wrong” had happened in his noble family, and his
people were waiting for him to liberate them.
"I’m not a kid, and
I think you Earth people are really wordy,” Zhihong moaned a bit after
revealing that he was actually 139 years old. "But still, thank you for
your care, Mommy and Daddy. I didn’t even know what clothes and food
were when I first arrived here,” the letter adds.
Like how all
the farewell letters are composed, Zhihong told his parents never to
look for him, and warned them not to reveal his real identity to others.
Moreover, he even left a line of strange, unrecognizable marks at the end of the letter, according to Xiaoxiang Morning News.
Leaving the letter behind, Zhihong then disappeared with a black
backpack and around 100 yuan (15.76 US dollars) in cash. His anxious
parents immediately called the police, and have been searching for him
all over the village. So far, their search has proven unsuccessful.
Although the parents say that they aren’t quite sure why the boy ran
away, they suspect it was because they took away his iPad the other day,
meaning that he could no longer play the games that he would otherwise
play at home.
As for the letter, the boy’s mother thinks it could
have something to do with the sci-fi novel that they had recently
bought for him.
The boy’s imaginative farewell letter has gone viral on social media, with many saying that his talent has blown their minds.
"Here you are my prince! I’ve had a hard time searching for you,”
commented @Damengchuxingdezhangdaxi, who implied himself to be one of
the people of Star and Night Prince’s.
"This is a masterpiece!” admired @Bidongbidonghuifaguang.
Meanwhile, netizens are also expressing their wish for the boy to come back to his Earth home soon.
"Do remember to come back to Earth to liberate your parents! They are worried!” said @Yiyuzhenghuanzheztl.
"The next chapter of this letter would be: Prince of Bisuomu gets a good beating from his parents.” @Hahaha-qinmeimei-
