If you’re reading this, then you’re as smart as I always knew you to be. Smarter than me, even. If you’re reading this, I’m so proud of you.
But I’ve been putting this off for way too long and, if I was more of a man, I’d have talked with you before doing what I did. But what’s done is done.
Writing this has made me nostalgic, but we both know that things aren’t how they used to be. I wish they were. I truly wish they were. I wish we could go back to them as those days were the happiest period of my life, when it was just you and me against the whole world. We were so good at what we did.
But that never would have lasted. Sooner or later, we have to grow up. We have to consider our future. It’s like you always said: we have to figure out how we’re going to be legends and heroes. I just want you to know, that I’ve figured that out. I am a trickster but I try to use it for the greater good.
After everything that’s happened, I know you won’t believe me, but I am grateful to consider you a friend. I did what I did for a reason and, someday, I do hope you’ll understand. We evolve and our stories move forward. We change and our legends build. But as your friend, I should’ve made more of an effort to listen to you, and I didn’t.
Now, perhaps we can try again.
There are co-ordinates on the back of this letter. You will find me there. But, if I am not there, I’ll leave directions for you to find me – you’ll know how to find them. I hope to see you soon, buddy. We all deserve a second chance, don’t we?
