Only You {Book 1 completed}

Ally Hylton has had a difficult life. When she was much younger, her mother died of cancer. Now, she has moved to a new city and new college, only recognizing the familiar face of her cousin, Harry. Also, we can't forget to mention the mysterious scar on her right shoulder. The scar that, when mentioned, had the ability to reduce Ally to tears. As Ally gets closer to Liam, Niall, Zayn, and Louis, she finds herself doing things she had sworn off- letting loose, falling for someone, and revealing the scandal that she had tried to forget.

36. The letter

I’m so, so sorry for leaving you, Ally. I know how hard the loss of your mother was on you, and even then you had me and Jake to help you through it. But since you are reading this, I am gone and now you only have Jake.

I hope that you are much older and happily living with a family of your own. Now, as I write this, you are twelve years old and you know more about the horrors of the world than I would like you to. You watched as your mother was weakened by the cancer and you stayed by her side throughout it all. You have no idea how proud I am of you for being so brave.

I would hate to think that I was taken by force or unnaturally. For you to have two parents stolen is a crime. It would be ideal for me to die of old age with you and Jake and my grandchildren surrounding me, but I know that life doesn’t always take your wishes into consideration.

If I can’t hope to die of old age, at least I know that you’ll have Jake with you to make sure you’re okay. Who knows, maybe you’ll be married with a little baby when you read this.

Promise me one thing- think of it as my last request.

Please don’t hide away from the world. Please don’t shut yourself away as you did when your mother died. I want you to live your life to the fullest and experience the joy that the world is capable of. Times are hard, and I understand that, but don’t dwell on my death.

If things are too unbearable for you, just imagine me right behind you, my hand on your shoulder, telling you it’ll be alright. Because it will- it may seem like the end of the world as you read this, but you will be happy again. I can guarantee you that.

Don’t forget to give Jake a hug and kiss and tell him that I love him. I love you both more than life itself, and I can’t wait for the day when I’ll see you in heaven. Don’t worry- your mother and I will be there at the gates of heaven to welcome you home. Just please don’t hurry. Take your time. I’d hate to see your life wasted.

You will always be my little angel and I thank you for all the smiles you brought to my face.

I will love you forever and always,

Your daddy
