I haven't been this scared since your brakes failed on your bike when you were hurtling down that hill. God, was I scared. Why has my friend become my enemy? Why has it destroyed the life I had built up, lovingly and timidly, like a fragile wall made of rose petals? It has become an unbeatable force I cannot even begin to understand. My sole companion, my partner in being, has turned on me like a traitorous snake. I am so very afraid. I do not now what is happening. I loved the darkness and now it feels the most ominous presence in the world.
Baby brother, I want to go home.
Give my love to Mother and Father, and tell them I miss them, Alice. X
