A/N: Something I couldn't get out of my head, and that now makes me cry.
It's been a while now.
I left as soon as you did. I didn't want to stay around.
I didn't even tell Jumba and Pleakley. They might be looking for me right now. I don't care. They won't ever find me.
I'm travelling. I stole my red police cruiser again, from Jumba's spaceship. I fixed it. Then I left. I just couldn't bear it, Lilo. I don't think I'd have survived through the burial. Just the look on your face. So peaceful, so pure, so... you.
I don't know what I'm going to do now. But without you, my life now seems pointless. I had no true purpose before I met you, Lilo. I was a mindless machine. So intelligent, and yet so dumb. You made me good. Thank you.
So even though you'll never get this letter, Lilo, I just wanted to let you know all the things I never said, and should have said.
You're my only Ohana, and I will forever love you.
The letter in my claws, so fragile and thin, threatens to tear as my claws tremble. I'm crying. My tears have held themselves inside me since the incident, but now as I fly through the vast open space of nothingness, they have no reason to.
I set the ship to Auto-pilot, and move sluggishly to the door. Tears drip from my eyes and down my face, matting my fur. I know I only have a second to do this, and that's all I need. I take one last look at the letter, and Lilo's name, before I turn the handle.
The emergency systems kick in at once to keep the air inside, as the door flies open and I feel the pressure of not only the heavy brick in my heart, but of the void outside.
Earth glints beautifully in the distance, growing smaller by every second. I press the letter against my chest and through my sobs, I whisper, "Goodbye, Lilo."
The letter leaves my claws, and flies away. Towards Earth, towards home.
