I don’t want you blaming yourself for what happened to me. It was my decision and I’m proud that I chose to fight back. Even if it was too late already.
I won’t tell you when I wrote this because you’re going to kill me on principle. I swear, there’s no such thing as sanctity with you.
Also, Mr Monmouth told me my uncle is going on trial this Wednesday and that they’ll find him guilty and press him with so many charges, he’ll need two lifetimes to get out. Good, I’m glad it’s finally happening.
I am getting tired of bland stew. Promise me you’ll bring something with actual flavour in it when you come for a visit.
Oops, gotta go now – Dr Gaius is here. I’ll make sure to send this with Perce the next time he comes around.
Say hi to my sister for me, will you? My only regret is not getting to know her.
You’ll come by once before my surgery next week, right?
Anyway, I miss you and your idiotic jokes and your big ears and that stupid smile. Please don’t cry for me.
Maybe we’ll get a better deal next time.
