Letters to Limbo

Scarlet, having died in a car crash, eventually finds a way to contact her best friend and lover Ethan. The problem is, Ethan is still alive. Through a series of letters, they begin to pond again.


2. Ethan (FireWitch)

To my angel, Scarlet;

Is this really you talking to me or have I gone mad?

I hope beyond everything that this is really you…..You can’t imagine how much I’ve missed you.

 I don’t really understand everything you wrote, but don’t worry about explaining it to me, I’m just glad I can talk to you again.

I’m in the military now – a sergeant in the army serving in Afghanistan.

You’re lucky I even got your message, it was sent to me just a day before I was shipped off. 

After your accident….after the accident that I caused…. I had to do something worthwhile with my time on Earth. 

I spent almost a year mourning you though – I couldn’t reconcile with the fact that I had killed someone. 
But after that I dropped out of school and left my home to join the military – I know, I bet you never would have guessed it considering what kind of guy I used to be.  
I just want to say I’m sorry. 
I wish – I wish beyond compare that I hadn’t made you drink that night. 
I wish I hadn’t been just a stupid high school kid wanting to drink the weekend away. 
You know, the night of the party I gave you a drink, not to get you drunk or anything like that – I just wanted you to relax – you where always so scared. 
When I asked you to take me to the liquor store I was planning on asking you out.
I wish I had done that sooner. 
But now at least I’m doing something useful – or so I hope. 
I hope I’m doing enough  - I hope that this will inspire you to forgive me, even though I don’t deserve it. 
I hope I hear from you soon.
