The anonymous whisper jars her from her shock, glancing up from her horrified stare beside his body to wildly search the room with her eyes.
They fall, growing still, to an uneaten apple on the table.
Audrey stands shakily and makes her way toward it.
There’s a sheet of paper there, forgotten pencil off to the side of it. Her name is written at the top.
Hesitantly, Audrey picks up the paper and begins to read, trying to see through fresh tears.
I know you still probably hate me, and i hate me too…i wronged you and all i can do is beg for your forgiveness even though i can’t forgive myself. I didn’t mean a word i said i was just lonely, sad, desperate and i kind of lost the plot a little bit didn’t i. But please believe me when i say i’m sorry with all my heart. Audrey I love you very much, you mean more to me than you can ever imagine. without you i would have gone crazy a long time ago but you kept me sane. And even though i said those things i still love you i know it didn’t seem it but it was breaking my heart i could feel these demons inside me screaming at me to hurt you i just wanted to make sure you would go and stay away because i knew they would take over and cause you pain and i didn’t want to hurt anyone i loved, not again. But i take it all back, you are special and you are one of the most amazing people anyone would ever have the luck to meet. And i can’t even believe my luck that i actually got to meet you and befriend you even considering the circumstances you trusted me and loved me when no one else would.
Anyway as i said i did loose my mind a little and it ends up that the Norma i was trying to bring back was a figment of my imagination but then it turns out the real norma was the Lore. Heh quite the plot twist right! but she said i should make it up to you before…before i have to go.
It’s only right. It is my birthday today, i am 30 years old and this is the day i have to say goodbye to my best friend who is a 16 year old girl and though i only knew her for a few months she was the only bit of true happiness in my life.
Right now i am sitting with Norma (the real Norma) and we are spending the time together, the time that we lost. She is keeping me calm cause i’m so scared Audrey, i’m terrified of whats comming next but i’m happy. Please don’t be sad over me Audrey i’ll be okay, and i’ll still think about you everyday and i will never forget you Audrey, my sweet little love.
By the time you read this i will most likely be gone. It’s my time and i accept it now.
Lots of love
