Work Text:

Dear Mia -STOP-

I found this old telegraph machine in the barn -STOP- I'm surprised it still works if I'm being completely honest because it's been so long and I don't know it it's actually sending this anywhere or if I'm just talking into nothing -STOP- Woudln't that be funny -STOP- If some guy somewhere suddenly gets a random message from a girl he doesn't know talking to another girl he doesn't know -STOP- I actually don't know how this thing works -STOP- I'm going to try again -STOP-

Dear Mia -STOP-

I looked some stuff up online and there's no way this thing should work -STOP- But it's kind of nice talking into it so I think I'll keep doing it just for fun -STOP- I hope that's okay with you -STOP- I know you're listening -STOP- I know you are because sometimes the lights flicker out when no one touches the switch and Charley is always watered even though I know that Phoenix isn't watering him all the time he forgets things so often -STOP- And sometimes things I misplace end up back on my bedside table and sometimes I can smell your perfume and it doesn't hurt like it does if I smell it in a department store -STOP- And I miss you an awful lot do you know that Mia -STOP- I miss you an awful lot and I wish that you were here with me and I miss you I miss you -STOP-

Dear Mia -STOP-

This is kind of like talking into a diary isn't it -STOP- You can't talk back just like a diary I'm just telling you things -STOP- I always hated writing in diaries though I think you knew that -STOP- It always felt like someone was going to read them when I was gone and can you imagine anything worse than that -STOP-

But I'm getting ahead of myself actually the reason I opened my dear diary is so I can tell you about Pearl -STOP- She started normal actual real school recently and it's so much fun watching her go and come back -STOP- Um she had a project last week about dinosaurs and she liked it a lot -STOP- I'm happy to see her happy -STOP- I just wish you could see too -STOP-

Dear Mia -STOP-

Nick saw me talking to you -STOP- And he wants to say hi -STOP- Is it bad of me to get angry at him for that -STOP- I know it is -STOP- You were his mentor and his best friend -STOP- But you left me for him sort of didn't you -STOP- You stayed here for him kind of you taught him things you never taught me -STOP- You left me in Kurain -STOP- Sorry this is so gloomy -STOP- I didn't actually mean that -STOP-

Nick says hi -STOP-

Dear Mia -STOP-

Pearl twisted her ankle today -STOP- I kept telling her if she kept running down the hall the way she was she'd get real hurt but she was chasing after a ball and there was a wrinkle in the carpet and wham -STOP- Twisted ankle -STOP- We had to drive her to the hospital and she was crying and crying -STOP- It was really scary but Nick was so calm the whole time it was like nothing was wrong -STOP- He only let himself look scared when she couldn't see -STOP- Did you teach him to do that or has he always been this way -STOP- I can never tell what parts of him are himself and what parts of him are pasted in from people he loves -STOP- Not that that's a bad thing -STOP- I think it's nice that everyone is a collage of people they've met -STOP-

Pearl is okay now mostly -STOP- The doctor gave her medicine and a plaster and she has to keep that on for ten whole days -STOP- Which she was super upset about at first but then the other kids at school signed it and now she loves it -STOP- I'm kinda worried she won't want to take it off now -STOP- I mean it's not a concern it's still Pearly we're talking about but you get it don't you -STOP- You always got me -STOP-

Dear Mia -STOP-

Did you ever wonder if you were really yourself -STOP- I mean okay this is a silly quesion of course you are I mean you were you and I am myself but do you ever think -STOP- I mean what with the spirit channeling -STOP- How do you know if it's really you and not someone's memory -STOP- How do you know if the ghost is really gone -STOP- How do you know when you're entirely yourself again -STOP- There are moments when I'm walking down the street and I see my face in the reflection of a glass window and it looks so strange and so foreign and I have to touch my cheek to remind myself that I'm here and alive and not dead myself -STOP- Mia I think I'm going a little crazy honestly -STOP- What if I've been lying to myself this whole time what if I really am just a hundred thousand different pieces of people that have passed through me what if I am Turner Grey and Mia Fey and Dahlia Hawthorne Mia what if Maya Fey is dead Mia what if Maya Fey has been written over by so many other people that she's hardly there anymore -STOP- How did you know this stuff how did you just know and how could you not tell me I hate you so much for not telling me -STOP-

Dear Mia -STOP-

Today Franziska asked me if I wanted to go out for dinner sometime and she looked so silly saying it that maybe I laughed at her a little bit and I feel a tiny bit bad about that -STOP- But I said yes and she looked as happy as Franziska von Karma ever looks -STOP- I like seeing her happy I don't know why but I do -STOP- I think she deserves it after everything -STOP- After everything -STOP- Don't we all deserve to be happy just a little bit just a lot -STOP- Nick told me to say hi to you so I am saying hi to you from him -STOP- Hi Mia hi Mia -STOP-
