    To Fang

    I couldn't let you show me up, so here is my letter, of sorts, to you. xD <br> If you consider it, the first time we met was luck of the draw. We both happened to be at SL and Bri got a bee in her bonnet to set us up. I figured she had given up after that spectacular failure, then you showed up at RW. I had never imagined that you would want anything to do with me after the scene that had been made. Then we talked all night long. I knew that night that you were the one I needed. I must admit, I was instantly jealous of your current boyfriend and hated his guts for making out with you at SL xD It's hard for me to comprehend how we went so quickly from total strangers to where we are now. <br> "Now there is no more lonlieness for you, for each will be companion to the other. Now you are two bodies, but there is only one life before you." ~Apache Wedding Blessing <br> I long to be with you when we are apart, to feel your touch and hold you close. I know that one of your fears is me leaving, but I promise now, I will never abandon you. I cannot abandon you. It would hurt me just as much to see you hurting. Lyrics I've quoted to you before, but I think are fitting: "Hey, pretty girl, it feels so right. Just like it's meant to be. All wrapped up in my arms so tight. Hey, pretty girl it feels so right." <br> It almost scares me when I realize just how real my feelings for you have become. It happened slowly, sneaking up on me. Telling you things that I haven't told my closest rl friends is easy. You know me better than most, if not all, of them. <br> I want to tell you so much more, but I'll save it for my next letter :D I love you, Fang. <br> -Jasper
