“I’m sorry,” she said. Her eyes didn’t well with tears. Those long-awaited tears just pooled and flowed over.
Jake raked his fingers through his hair and paced the spare bedroom. “Sorry for what, Morgan? What exactly are you sorry about?” he yelled. He walked over and dropped to his knees and sifted through the letters. When he found the one he wanted he stood and stared at her. The pain in his eyes shattered her and she knew what was going to happen next. He ripped open the envelope and withdrew the letter. “Read it,” he demanded, waving it in her face. She wanted to hold her hands over her ears and sing like a four-year-old, anything to take her away. Her hand trembled as she took the letter. “Out loud,” he said through gritted teeth.
Although her vision was blurry and her throat felt like it was closing up, she read the last letter he had written her, dated exactly one year after she had lost the other half of her soul…
Morgan,
I know I have to let you go. Your silence tells me that. My head tells me that. I just wish my heart would follow their lead. Because I don’t want to love you anymore. Or dream about you. Or remember the night I made love to you under the stars. I want to stop thinking about you every fucking second of the day. I want to move on like you have and not feel a goddamn thing. But in order for that to happen, I have to say goodbye. So this will be my last letter and my last attempt. If you love me at all, if there is any part of you that wishes to come back to me, you know where to find me. I love you, Morgan.
Jake
She couldn’t look at him. She didn’t want to imagine how he had felt as he put that pen to paper the day he wrote those words.
“Say something,” he said. She didn’t need to look in his eyes to know that he was crying. She could hear it in his voice, the way his breathing stuttered as he exhaled.
