"I pulled them out of the fire my self. I read them all. Every word you wrote. You and I, Tess, were alike. We live and breath words. It was books that kept me from taking my own life after i thought i could never love anyone again. It was books that made me feel that perhaps i was not completely alone. They could be honest with me and i with them. Reading your words, what you wrote, how you were lonely sometimes and afraid, but always brave; the way you saw the world, its colors and textures and sounds, i Felt- i felt the way you thought, hoped, felt, dreamed. I felt I was dreaming And thinking and feeling with you. I dreamed what you dreamed, wanted what you wanted- and then I realized that truly i just wanted you. The girl behind the letters. I loved you from the moment i read them. I love you still."
