I can't help but smile as I finish writing a letter to Leslie. We have written before, but this is the first time I have ever done so by owl. Samuel told her the truth and I was surprised to hear he had done it so soon. I did not know how she would react, but she took it well enough. She was shocked and slightly scared, but she accepted it after the intial surprise wore off.
I promised myself, and Samuel, to write her in this manner so when I finally tie it to the owl, I feel like a weight is off my shoulders. I don't have to lie to her anymore, which can be harder than most think, especially during our weekend in Edinburgh.
As I get to my feet to make some dinner to I call out "Dinner time, Shadow." I usually am greeted by such a call by a small ball of fur purring at my ankles, so I am surprised that after a few minutes, there is no sign of my cat.
