Those two words, ‘Dear Emma’ take me away to way another time when we use to write to each other after mom and dad died. I used to tell you about my new friends and my new life. And you used to tell me about the grand time my mom and dad were having in heaven. Truth is nothing. What you believe to be true is everything. And the main thing that I used to believe was that I would be with you forever. Forever. The reason it is taking me so long to write you is that I have seen that I have been a fool. I have spent my life fooling myself. Every letter I’ve ever written to you has been a love letter. How could they have been anything else? I can see now that all of them, except this one, were bad love letters. Bad love letters beg for love back. Good love letters ask for nothing. This, I’m pleased to announce, is my first good love letter to you. Because there is nothing more for you to do. You already done everything. I have enough of you in my head to last forever. So please don’t ever worry about me. I’m peachy! I really am. I have everything. If i had one wish, it would be that your life brings you a taste of happiness that you have brought to me. That you could feel what it’s like to love.
Your friend forever,
Chloe: That letter was for you. I wrote it to you softmore year in high school when you were really sick. The only way I had enough guts to tell you how I actually felt was when you were unconscious.
Clark: (reads the letter) “…I may not be the one you love today but I’ll let you go for now, hoping one day you’ll fly back to me.”
Chloe: The kicker is you did respond with one word - Lana.
Clark: I guess I always knew, I just…
Chloe: Clark. That was a long time ago. Don’t worry, I don’t feel that way now. I just wanted you to read it, so that I could finally close that chapter of my life and put it behind me. But don’t get me wrong, I don’t regret having had those feelings. But that’s because they helped prepare me so that I was ready to share my love with the perfect person. And to me that person is Jimmy. So you blew it, bud.
Clark: I just want you to be happy.
Chloe: Clark what you and I have I will never share with anyone else. You’re my BFF. Which is why, when Jimmy and I get married, I was hoping that you would give me away at the altar?
