Hi. I know it sounds crazy but.. I don’t exist. I told you it’s crazy but I don’t… Well, I used to. I barely do now. There’s still a chance I could exist. It’s slim, but… but it’s there. There’s nothing anyone can do to help me, it has to be her. But.. she won’t. Because to her, I only existed in the past. She thinks I’m gone. She thinks she’s crazy for ever seeing me. But.. I existed and… and I still do. But… I won’t. Not anymore. Not if she doesn’t think I do. I don’t know why I am telling you this, there’s no point. It’s not like you can help. It’s not like she will. It’s not like she knows. But… I just need her to believe in me. See me… Once more, so I can tell her I am real. If she believes I am.. I will be… but not until she does. If she does I will be real- to everyone.. not just her. And we’ll be friends… forever, and… who am I kidding? Her days of being a kid are disappearing. They’re almost gone. I’m leaving with them. I have no control over it, I’m part of her childhood. I’m part of her childhood self. But that part of her… is gone.
