Sam is dead with one thing on his mind, his beautiful wife Lyla. Writing her letters from the grave, what will Lyla do with them?


1. Letter 1

To my dearest darling,


Words can’t explain how much I miss the sound of your voice, the smell of your skin and the softness of your hair. I miss hearing your laughter and the glint that comes into your eyes when I crack a joke. I miss hearing your breath catch in your throat when I’d kiss you ever so softly.

I miss you, and I’m sorry for what I’ve done.

But that doesn’t mean I regret it.

You’re still there, awaiting for me. I refuse to believe otherwise. I can see the far away look in your eyes as you look out the windows. Sometimes you look right at me, but you can’t see me. Sometimes I talk to you, but you can’t hear.

If only you’d have listened to me. We wouldn’t be here if you’d have. You would be here, with me. In my arms, pressed against my chest. Away from the world, danger and.. him.

Sometimes I think you blame me for what happened and you’re wrong. It’s not my fault it’s his. Remember who you are, dearest Lyla. Remember that you are mine. Not his.


From your beloved,
