Diane,

I want you to know this will be my last correspondence with you. It pains me too much looking at Aura. I committed a great sin and for her sake, I must go. The less contact I have with her, the more I can focus. She's a strong girl, Diane, I know you will watch over her. The boy will be watching her as well, making sure she lives. He is bound by oath, after all, to protect her. He cannot let her die. I will not let her die. Not yet. Not until I can make save our daughter. Diane, if my actions lead you to hate me, I accept it. I love our daughter more than anything. I love her more than you. She's everything and to save her, I must be deprived of everything. I just need time.
