3. Dear You

Adrella grinned as her favourite nurse threw her the latest letter with a knowing smile. She tore open the envelope, drinking in the words. In that moment, she was brimming with excitement. Her cheeks flushed, eyes sparkling with joy, any observer could tell that she was elated to recieve the letters. They were her only source of comfort, an escape from her harsh reality.


Dear Adrella,

She really is, you know. It's awful living with a sister like that. Ugh.


That sounds great! I'll make sure to watch it next time it's on. Have you ever heard of Utopia? That's amazing. I'd recommend you don't watch it when your parents are around though.


What? Why? What do you mean?




Pressing the letter to her face, she breathed in the scent of lavender. Ty used his mother's stationary, which she scented herself and sold at a market stall in town on a Saturday. It had become Adrella's most longed-for fragrance. 

With a sigh, she grabbed her notebook from her bedside table. The fifth page was titled 'Things to do Before I Die'. The sixth had only three words: eight weeks left.
