Dear Ethan,

It has only been one day since you took that train and left. I miss you now just as much as I will miss you one hundred days from now or even three hundred and sixty-five days from now.
I know that sometimes when you really love somebody you have to let them go. I know that this place made you miserable; it suffocated you until you had to get out. I understand this and I do not blame you for needing to get out.

For every day that you are gone I have decided to write you a letter. I only ask that you read it and remember us before. I do not ask for a response because I think for the both of us it would just be too painful.


Love,
Caroline

I randomly got this idea to start a story composed of only letters exchanged between two people. Well this is only one and it deviates from the original direction that I wanted to take. I hope you like it.

I've commented and read many pieces of yours, and I just love them all. I think this is a very cute one. It reminds me a little of Dear John, which I like;) You're very talented, and I hope you never feel the need to stop writing(:

To love is to risk not being loved in return. To hope is to risk pain. To try is to risk failure, but the greatest hazard in life is to risk nothing..
