  • Hello my friend.
    Hope you've had a good few years.
    I've been a little lonely without you but, now there's a chance we can see each other again soon.
    You understand why I did it right?
    You understand why I locked you away for so long?
    I did it to protect you.
    I did it to protect me more like it.
    The last time I gave you away, you were broken up into little bitty pieces. Still haven't found all of them actually.
    Have you fixed yourself yet?
    Do you feel whole?
    You look like you've come a long way in three years.
    Well anyway, I wanted to tell you that I think you'll be able to come out soon.
    I'm going to need you but, when you do open up do it really slow and be careful not to come out if it seems dangerous.
    It really hurt last time you broke and I don't want to feel that again.
    It seems different this time.
    He seems different.
    Life seems different.
    Just be careful.
    Don't be too confident.
    No one has ever taken care of you before.
    He may. He may not.
    Ok I've got to go.
    Just a little longer and you can fly.
    Just wait.
    You'll be free.
