I've told you before and I will keep telling you the same thing over and over again. I am NOT going to give any of your messages to Merlin. Merlin is like a brother to me and what you did to him, for the sake of your family, your father's reputation, his rules of your courtship, was nothing short of cruelty. I don't give a fuck that you're not married any more, the fact that you used Merlin like that was enough for me to know that you're not worth him.
I don't care that you still love him! He does not love you. He was broken for months, even years, after you left him. You deserve whatever you get, and you do not deserve Merlin.
If you want to find him on your own, you can, but I will not help you. I don't care if he finds out about this and I don't care if he won't talk to me for the rest of my life, but I don't owe you anything.
You can write to me as much as you want. You can have your friends send messages to him all you want, but I will never tell him what you have to say.
You'll never believe it. I ran into Merlin today at the airport! I was just about to board the plane to Los Angeles when I saw him from across the hall. He was on his way to check in through the airport security and I chased after him, screaming his name -- the security almost arrested me! Can you believe it? Of all the places! It's a good thing that Lance was there and he flashed his Interpol Identification Card to back the security off.
Merlin saw me just in time! He walked out of the queue to greet me and was surprised to see that Lance and I are married. I suppose he never did find out about the divorce! It's too bad. I told him all I could in the five minutes he spoke to me.
Anyway, I unfortunately didn't get a chance to get his contact information in Toronto but did find out that he's going to be working for Samsung! I hope that helps!
We'll be in Los Angeles for a few weeks before we start our US roadtrip. I'm not sure how available I will be, but I'll try to ring you up soon.
I saw Gwen at the airport a few days ago and was surprised to find out that she's now married to Lance! I'd always thought that Lance was such a catch--wait, I probably shouldn't have wrote that.
I spoke to Will recently and he informed me that you've been trying to get in touch with me for years. He, of course, is very against you and I communicating and didn't approve when I sent you my last letter. I hope that you're doing well, and maybe we can try to be friends again. Once I've settled in Toronto, I can perhaps send you my contact information. At the moment, I'm staying at the Hilton, who knew finding a decent flat in Toronto was such an ordeal?
Gwen had also told me that you resigned from your position at Pendragon Communications, and started your own firm with Morgana over two years ago! That's bloody brilliant. I always knew that there was more to you than what your father thought!
I'll keep in touch the best I can,
To: Kara Medraud
CC: Morgana Pendragon
I'll need you to find out information on all the Hilton Hotels in the city of Toronto, Canada, and find the one located closest to the corporate offices of Samsung, Inc. Additionally, I'll need you to book me a one way ticket to Toronto, ASAP. I've attached details of my passport and other legal travel documents that might be necessary to make the booking.
I'm finally taking that holiday you've been harassing me about for the past six months. I'm not sure when I'll be returning.
