I'm trying to figure out if my mind is playing tricks on me by remembering something I've read years ago incorrectly or not. If I am remembering correctly, I want to know if anybody can help point me to where I might have read it. It's one of those stories of some hero of old that was taken up off of earth and he describes what the earth looks like as he travels away from it. Etana, Enkidu or other names may be used. I could have sworn that in one of this stories the end went something like this:

"I looked back and could no longer see the earth and I panicked and asked to be taken back to the earth, but I was told that 42 years (could be a different year cound) have gone by. Then I begged not to be taken back because I did not want to be any older, but I was told I would be no older."

It was similar to the above. Clearly many years going by on earth but very little time going by in the vehicle that's flying away from the earth is a clear description of time dilation do to high speed travel. I thought I had read it maybe in a Sitchin book or maybe another source, and yet to this day I have not been able to locate that story again. I don't know whether my brain is fusing together different stories or info from various sources into one, or if I'm just remembering wrong.

The question is, does the above part of the story sound familiar to anybody, and if so, what book might it be in?

Thanks for any help.
