Dear Squall,

I suppose it's a waste of time to ask you how things are going, your life's all over television, after all.
So let me cut straight to the point of this ridiculous letter. I'm not going to beg for your mercy, but still, I hope that you can find it in yourself to forgive me, if possible even forget me. Forget all about me, forget what we ever might have had together, forget all the things I ever did to you.
But before you do that though, know that I'm sorry. I probably should have told you before, but I love you and I'm sorry.
I realize that this letter is laughable and what I'm asking of you even more so, I've probably already cursed myself a thousand times by the time you're reading this, but I still hope you'll give me what I ask for here, it's the last I'll ever ask from you.
So forget about me, forget about this shitty letter and have a great life.

With love,
Seifer Almasy.

It was a week after he'd sent his letter, an act that he now considered absolutely foolish, that Seifer's doorbell rang, a most unusual occurrence. He answered the door with some trepidation, only opening it all the way when he saw who it was.
"I can't forget."
"I should have known."
They hugged and stood in the doorway for at least five minutes, not moving, holding each other tightly, making sure that this surreal situation didn't just exist within their minds.
They went inside then, never completely letting go, stumbling their way to Seifer's bedroom, promising without words, as they wrapped their bodies around each other, that they'd always remember.
