from your millie




for my puck:

 
   you've gotten older. i looked over just the other day, watching for the way your eyes found mine across the room. and when i saw you, i couldn't believe it. when did you get so tall? when did you get so...wonderful?
   because i was used to finding fault. and i was used to seeing time pull things apart. but there you were. here you are. you are tall, and you are brave, and you are wonderful. i see the way you talk to them. the way you watch them intently, like they are important. the way you stand for them, when their backs ache.
 
  i was not there at the beginning.

  i did not see everything. somehow i wish i had. but i am here now, and it has been a very long few years for us. we were just children, back then, and we had hearts that were easily damaged. did you break mine? i look all around, but i feel no memory of losing something. from all accounts, they would say that i did, indeed, lose you.
 
   but they didn't know.

   someone once told me that love never stops growing if it's real. i guess i imagined that didn't apply to us, because why would we ever need to hear it? but i was wrong. and so i'm going to tell you now, before the sun goes behind the clouds. quick! before i run out of courage! before i lose my-

   i still love you.

   there. Maker be with you.

  2. DUDE. I want to know like the behind the scenes of this because I feel like I just walked in on the middle of chapter 7 and I didn't hear any of the other stuff, but I am enchanted and buying the book because I want to know what this all is. 0_0

    ALSO, I EMAILED YOU BACK AND I AM SORRY THAT TOOK SO LONG!!

    also random thought: you would probably be an INCREDIBLE screen writer. Js.
