33. The Note
The note I picked up said:
Hey, it's Dan, I came back and noticed that you were gone. I assumed at first that you left, but then I remembered that you like to walk while you think. I knew you would probably start packing your things when you came back so I left this here. All I wanted to say was i'm sorry. I should have respected who you decided to be with. Then, I saw Clark walk out the door of the hotel looking angry. I knew then that you must have told him what happened with me and the girl at the desk and he probably got mad and left. By the time you get this I will be on the plane. I have decided to go to Scotland to live for a while and study their culture. I bet your wondering why I am not continuing my search for my uncle. That's because he was never real. I just wanted to get to know you so I made him up so we could go on an adventure together and I could learn about you and you could learn about me. If only I had known that it was going to lead to broken hearts, sadness, and confusion. I am very sorry. Hopefully you will find a house to live in or an apartment and make your own life. I know I will. I hope we can still be friends, and if you ever find yourself in Scotland, you can visit whenever you want. My deepest regards for you, for you were the first girl I ever liked. Goodbye for now.
