"Scarlet, before you go through with this. I want to remind you of September 7, 1988. It was the first time that I saw you. You were reading Less Than Zero, you were wearing a Guns N’ Roses t-shirt. I’ve never seen anything so perfect. I remember thinking that I had to have you or I’d die. Then you whispered that you loved me, at the homecoming dance, and I felt so peaceful and safe. Because I knew that no matter what happened, from that day on nothing could ever be that bad. Because I had you. And then I grew up and then I lost my way, and I blamed you for my failures. And I know that you think you have to do this today. I don’t want you to. But I guess.. if I love you. I should let you move on."
