Jack…I didn’t get to say this before, so i need to say it now. You are who I should have wanted. You were right. But I could never manage to give up Elijah. I couldn’t walk away. I met him at a time in my life when I was scared, alone. I know that’s messed up. I guess I never really…saw what love was supposed to look like. But I don’t want that for Hope. I wish she knew you. I wish a lot of things. As for Elijah…I know what he is. I guess I always knew. But I loved him despite it, or maybe because of it. Thruth is, I’m a monster, too. We’ve all done terrible things, Jack. Except for Hope. She’s innocent, pure. And I want to make sure she stays that way. I know what I have to do. I just have to be brave enough to do it.
