Please don't smirk. Of course, I know, I've lost the privilege of referring to "us" collectively. When I left, there is no more "our" "we" "us." It's not selfish if you excluded the idea of "me" from day one. Am I irritating you with my quoting of words? Are you imagining me doing that air quote thing you dislike? My dear Gemma, there are days and days when I imagine coming home to you and making you laugh again. I was arrogant in believing that I would find someone else like you. Please read these letters as me asking forgiveness.
