"Jessi!" Kyle said and knocked lightly on her door to her bedroom. No response, was she avoiding him? He opened the door, ready to question her but stood there stunned as he saw it. It was completely empty, and her bed was made. She never came home last night. Where could she be? He walked into the center of the room, looking around to find anything that could tell him was she was up to. He was starting to get anxious, what if she was in danger? He had to find her. He closed his eyes and concentrated… nothing. In frustration, he sat down on the bed and put his head in his hands. Why couldn't he sense her, unless… she didn't want for him to find her? A sigh escaped his mouth, and he sat back up again. In frustration, he glanced to his left and noticed something with on her nightstand. It was a letter with his name written on it in a beautiful handwriting, Jessi's. He reached out his hand and took it to read what was inside. A strange feeling came over him.

Kyle,

I know that you must be wondering where I am and I'm sorry to say that I can't tell you that. Not now anyway. I needed to get away for a while, have some time with myself to think things through. After all that's happened, I believe that I have earned it. And frankly, I couldn't handle staying any longer. So, I left. Maybe it was cowardly of me to just run off without telling you, I just knew that I wouldn't be able to leave if you asked me to stay. Seeing you hurt hurts me to. You're still my friend, even though I know now that I will never love you simply as one. I'm trying to accept that, and you being with Amanda. As much as I wish it was different, I just want you to be happy. That's all I've ever wanted. I'm telling you this now, so that I can finally move on with my life and trying to be a good friend to you, as you've always been for me. I can't even begin to thank you for everything you've done for me, saving me countless times. This is why I have to let you go, and do everything in my power to make sure that you stay happy and safe. I owe you that much, and I intend to give you back at least a little of what you've given me. I was lost before I met you, then you came along and saved me, bringing me into the family. For the first time I wasn't alone, I finally felt love and that there were people who cared about me. I'd be dead a long time ago if it wasn't for you. Thank you, for everything. I'll see you soon Kyle, please give my love to the Tragers.

Love always,

Jessi

As he read her final words, a tear rolled down his faced and he felt his heart breaking. He had hurt her so bad, and the worst part is that he didn't even notice it. In that moment everything became crystal clear, he was going to do everything in his power to make things right. Because the fact was, how much he tried to deny it, they had a special band between them. There had always been more to their relationship. He realized that he loved her to.
