Emily on || Where she had grown up “I was born in Kansas and then - my dad’s side of the family is from Kansas and my mom’s side is from Chicago - we moved to Chicago. But from first grade on, I grew up in New York - just outside the city,in a town called Mamaroneck.“
Dear Ziva, we could’ve had a life together, all of it, the whole thing. A marriage, some children, however many we wanted. A life. I wanted a life with you. I should’ve told you earlier, I should’ve stopped and looked at you and told you but I was scared and you were scared and we weren’t ready. I’m ready now. Isn’t that ironic? I’m ready right now, I’m still scared but not being with you is so much scarier. I can’t wait but I will. I’ll wait and wait and wait for you, holding my breath, trying to breathe at all.
