Dearest

I understand it is inconceivable to write to you. I already visualize your reply being half about you chastising me for even attempting this. I suppose I do not really have any real retorts, only that I miss you so dearly. I cannot even bring myself to pass by the watch shop. It seems like the place should not exist unless you are there in it.

I wish there was something more I could do for you. Is Brad treating you well? He tells me he is being 'as patient as possible with you' but I'm not sure I believe him. You will tell me if he is being awful with you, won't you?I am not certain what exactly I can do about it but I rather try to do something than sit here doing nothing at all.

You must be in dire need of a distraction. I sent some books along with the letter.
They are quite varying since I was not sure what you would prefer to read. Do take care of them they are from the library here and as you know, this is not my home to toss books out of without a care. Though I suppose in all reality no one would notice.

Although I have not really said anything of importance I do not wish to end this letter. Please write to me. To hear from you even if it is short and curt would be very, very welcome. Do take very good care of yourself. Half of this battle will be keeping your wits about you.

Sincerely, Your 'Fae'

I have started this letter a thousand times. Over and over and over again. No matter what I write, the words never say what I mean. Not knowing the right words to say. It is like being lost in the dark and hoping you find something familiar and right. Still, even writing, I never have the right words to tell you all and everything.

Brad is a hard man to work with. He talks too fast. I feel since being in Lairea I have took the language well. But he uses words I have never heard of. It takes time to understand. Time I know I do not have. I work with him still. If you think of him as a good man, I will trust you. I will trust him. We will work together.

The books are a good distraction. Thank you. Having a choice is welcome. Instead of reading the same book over and over and over again. The words start appearing behind your eyes. You can read it in your sleep. Having nothing to do is the hardest part. You get left with your thoughts. Possibilities and imagination. You do not want that in a place like this. So again, thank you.

I have started reading Pride and Prejudice. I was curious about the name. I am not far through but I was not sure if it was a mistake you gave this to me. It is about balls and estates and wealthy bachelors. Or is this a comment you are trying to make? Subtle or not? It is you. So, I say not.

But, I enjoy Elizabeth Bennet's forcefulness. I think I am more like Mr Darcy at a ball. For that I am glad. But you may laugh. Kitty is all too familiar to my Kitty at home. Noted - Please write to Matka. She will think the worst if she does not hear from me. A letter a month. The address will be upon any of her old letters.

This letter is a mess and I am sorry for the spilled ink. But your letter means more than I could write. It means more than words I know how to speak. It means something. Knowing I am here. And you are there. Waiting.

I will wait for letter 2.

Victor,

I do not understand the letter your family sent back. I have attached it to this one for you to read. I hope that was not a mistake. I thought about translating it but it did not seem appropriate for me to read your family's words that were meant only for you to see. I know you asked me to write to them for you but I cannot tell them the truth of where you are. So if you so wish it, write your letters for them to me and I will make sure they get sent. I shall also make sure to keep an eye out for any letters they send to you. You should tell them you have moved though and put my address as where they can reach you. Breaking into your old apartment for your letters is not exactly an easy way for me to stay unknown.

I have been thinking a lot about how to help you keep your mind alert and active. I was thinking if it pleases you maybe I could read the same books as you and we can speak about their content? I suppose its a bit of a drab book club and you'll have to let me know what part of the story you are on but it is something to do. I also need your help with something. I imagine you are thinking how brazen I am to ask anything of you right now but trust me if it was not important I would not ask you to do it.

What can you tell me about a chap named Eli Strauss? He seems to be spending an awful lot of time with my younger sister. As per usual with the rift-raft she spends time with there is not much in the way of records about who they are. I believe she is attempting to teach him magic? It seems ludicrous to me how a grown man would learn magic now but I suppose it is none of my business as to why.

Anyway, I do find it terribly charming that you have a bit of a crush on Mr. Darcy. He is quite like you. I did translate what Miłość meant. How is it in letters you can express yourself so clearly and yet when you are in front of me I feel I cannot predict any of what you will do or say or feel? Maybe you are just a talented writer all along. Maybe I am reading into a translation. Either way all I do these days is re-read your letter. I worry for your mind and your heart in that hard place.

Please write to me soon,
F.

Thank you. I have Matka's letter. Matka says the family is well I now know Erik's new job at the factory. I have put the letter for them as you said. I wrote that I moved. I think they wonder why I moved to a fancy-sounding address. I told them I am sharing it for now. They ask for photographs of where I live. So they can see what it is like. They might ask for a photograph of your house.

The book club should happen. Today I am reading The Count of Monte Cristo. I did not think I would like it. It is about a Count. Reading it though, it is good. Better than good. I like the story. Dumas is a good author. You gave me more of Dumas' books. I shall read later. I think I would have read Monte Cristo first if I knew it was about a man put in prison for a crime he did not commit. I like Dantès a lot. Now Dantès is trying to escape. I hope he does. It is a very good story, I like the characters and what it talks about. (But I wonder if you gave it this book to me for a reason. To give me ideas? Maybe?)

I do not understand why your sister is teaching Eli magic. He is a painter. He is not magic. I also do not understand how your sister is able to spend time with him. He is difficult. He is difficult and selfish and spoilt. You will not like him. You should not talk to him, he will be no help.

It is cold. But I am fine. Brad is not coming so much anymore. He says he is getting 'character witnesses'. People to talk about me. I am not sure if that is good or not. It depends. I hope good. But you will not talk. (I understand). I am not sure who will talk. Maybe Roman. He was a good man. Not like an Earl. A good man. My candle is almost run out. I do not know if I get more. So I am writing this by light from the streetlamp near the window. I hope it reads. It is not a bright light. The window is frosted. Like snow flowers. Like around the lake in Spring. Winter must be over soon. Yes?

I want to see the lake again.

Victor,

Let me start with some nagging. We both know it is what I do best when it comes to you. Are you sure you want to show them real pictures of the house? They might have lots of questions of how you could afford living in such a place. I propose you ask your friends for pictures of their homes. I do not mean to be a snob about it but I imagine their homes are much more quaint and accurate to what your family imagines.

Secondly, if you ever dare to break out of prison and go on the run I will hunt you down myself. Brad is working terribly hard on your case. He has even got a lady working with him on it and you know how much he hates company or sharing the spotlight. She is a really tough girl and she has funded cases like this before. She wants to see your freedom, as do we all, but under the ways of the law. You'd have to flee Lairea and then where will you go? No, it is not worth it. Do not joke about such a thing or it will stick in your mind and drive you mad.

Well now that the nagging is done I would like to inform you that your painter friend is magic. He is also rubbish at it. I watched him practically collapse a building on himself while my sister tried to teach him to paint without touching the brush. He's very hopeless. Most late to magical learning are though. I did discover something while watching them though that might be promising. My sister has let your painter friend borrow a family wand. How she kept it while being in jail baffles me. Maybe she bought it back in an auction? Maybe a family friend kept it for her in safe keeping? Either way our family crest is on it.

I suppose that does not explain why it is important, does it? You know the tattoo I have on my wrist, the one of the swirling vines and the insignia? that is my family crest. All in my family receive the tattoo in their fifteenth year. My sister's were too young when everything went down to receive theirs but I have mine. if they know their family crest and of our tattoo history when I meet them they will have no doubt I am their brother once their see the markings on me! I am so desperate to meet them but the magic that clouds their minds is still very strong. I suppose I must remain vigilant and patient.

I put several candles in your package. They did not allow me to send you matches but if you tap the candle three time sit will light without them. They will burn longer than most. I hope they last. We are halfway there, Victor. Try not to despair. I have so much to show you when you are released. Think on the future rather than the past or the present. I am confident now more than ever that Brad and Vera will make a break through in the case. I will see you again out of that place.

You are strong, Victor, so I do not have to urge you to be strong.

This will pass soon,
F.

When you write nagging you write like you talk. It is good. Like you are here. Even when you are not. The guard asked why I laugh, I say it is your letters. I do not think he understands. But he does not mind. I think he likes me more now. I fixed his watch. He has given me his brother and father's watches. I am to fix them too. I do not mind. It is something else to do. I miss fixing things.

I finished the Count of Monte Cristo. I will not copy him. Do not worry. But it was a good book. I enjoyed it a lot and have decided to read more Dumas. I already read The Prince of Theives and now I am reading The Three Musketeers. I like it very much. Can you please send me more Dumas? Or has he not written more? I think, if I could ever write, I would like to write something like Dumas.

As for Eli - he cannot be magic. No one that hopeless can be magic. But then I did not know I was gifted. So I am not an expert. The crest sounds like a good thing to base your evidence on. (I am not surprised you are a family that has a crest). Do you know how long you must wait for the magic to leave? I hope not long. I would like you to be happy. To achieve what you came here for and get your family back. If nothing else, I wish that for you.

The candles help with the light. The guards took one. They did not understand how they lit with no matches. But I am fixing their watches. So they can not complain much. Yesterday the cell was so cold the bars froze. They could not open them to serve my food. Not until they poured hot water on them. It is still cold. I hope you are warm. I hope you are safe.

Tęsknię za Tobą
