A/N -ME- When I first came up with this idea I was really nervous if we would be able to write as many letters as we needed. But I soon found out that trying to write more than Walking_Weapon each letter was a great motivator. I had a really good times writings these letters,adding in jokes here and there, I hope y'all enjoy reading them.
AN: NOT ME - This was both a blast and infuriating to work on. Editing it was...ya...a bitch to put it mildly. SO I apologize in advance for and errors in either grammar and spelling or continuity. I tried really hard to make it all flow and mesh and make sense so hopefully it works. I had a blast with all the little jokes and stuff we added too so I hope you guys catch them. Enjoy.

I know you just left, I was the one that drove you to the airport after all, but when I got back to our empty apartment I couldn't help but open my laptop and write you an email. I know that we both agreed that you doing Doctor's Without Borders was a good idea, they really need Ortho Goddesses like you, but I am going to miss you like crazy over the next year. I hope you like the Congo; I hear that it can be really beautiful there. I know this letter is short, but I have to go to work and I just wanted you to know that I already miss you.
Please stay safe Calliope.
P.S. I slipped a bottle of my perfume in your bag.

I've only been gone a couple days and it feels like forever. Why did you ever let me do this? Why did I think this was a good idea? I'm sorry, I'm tired and you know how I get when I'm like that. I'm not trying to whine and make this harder than it is, it's just harder than I anticipated now that I'm here.
The Congo is...hot. And humid. The other doctors assure me I'll get used to it, but I already miss Seattle's rain.
I have to keep this short too since we only have limited access to a computer and everyone wants on. It looks like Thursdays are when I'll be able to send you letters so don't panic if you don't hear from me for a bit.
I have you waiting for me Arizona, of course I'll stay safe. I promised you I'd stay safe and come home to you in one piece and I keep my promises. I hope the tiny humans are behaving and you were able catch up on some sleep today.
Love you and miss you like crazy,
Calliope (see, told you I'd keep my promise and sign my letters that way)
P.S. My pillow smells like you now.
