My dearest Hope. I do not know how this will find you. As a child full of wonder, a teenager full of opinions, or a woman with the world at her feet. I write to tell you that I love you and to explain that in our family’s darkest hour, I was called upon to save my siblings, and so I did. Please do not mourn me. Whatever pain I endure, I do so in service of those I love. My sole regret is that I will be away from you…


Is that what you were planning on telling her when she got older and asked for me, that I abandoned her? My parents left me! Yours turned their backs on you! Look at us now, Klaus! She deserves something better than what we had. All I have ever wanted for her is something better!
