There was also one for Jasmine and Daniel.
She doesn't answer, of course. But I think somewhere, somehow she hears me. As I leave I ask the nurse for a piece of paper and pen, and I write a short letter to Es and Pete. Just in case. Because the future is uncertain, and this battle might be my last. Could you mail this for me? I ask the nurse.She's about to say no, that it's not their policy to play postal service to patients, but then something shifts in her face. Maybe she sees into something deeper, something truer than rules. Because her face softens and she nods. I can't do it from work, but I'll drop it by the post office after.
I smile at her, touched by her kindness, by her willingness to go out of her way for a stranger.And as I turn to leave, I stop again, something tugging at my mind. There was a man here before; he visited my mom. Has he been here again?Ace paces the floor impatiently, but the nurse, she pauses, a curious expression overtaking her face. Actually, yes, there was someone. He left a note, said to give it to anyone who asked about him.
She rummages through my mother's file and pulls out a small envelope, handing it to me. It's all very strange, she says with a vague expression on her face. And I wonder if she's been influenced by magic.I open the note as we leave. It isn't long, but it is life-altering.
If you're reading this, then you remember seeing me. That in itself is something. It means you're growing in your powers.
I have so much to apologize for, but I fear I haven't the time. I know what Inferna and Avakiri are going through. I know what has become of you all.I screamed and screamed.
I screamed so fucking loud.I screamed for my father, my mother, my sister and brothers.
I screamed for myself.Bubbles flew from my mouth.
