Letters to Bruce
“November 16 2006
I’m sorry I have to take your time by writing to you, but I was hoping that maybe something would flinch inside you, if you ever felt something about me. I’m still in Gotham, and you can always come to me if you need help. If as you said a year ago, are my soulmate, please come find me. I still love you. With all my fucking heart.

You did not come. I dont know whether I should say ‘yet’, but you did not come just yet. I got a job at a coffee shop to fund my college studies! I’ll make it Bruce! I promise. I’ll make my life so much better now. My sister, Emma, is also back and I can’t wait to tell her everything.
I love you so much.
I hope you feel amazing. Because I do so too. I’ve met an amazing person. A regular at the coffee shop I’m working. Tonight was our fifth date. I hope it turns out good, Bruce, or that once you’ll come and see me, because I still, even after all these years, utterly love you.
And I will for so long

Matt, the man I talked to you about in last year’s letter, gave me a ring.
A ring Bruce.
I mean, I love this man, but a part of me still stays with you. I’m going to ask you to come find me and give me some advice. Also Emma is now pregnant with a child. She said she saw you the week before.

Days pass awfully slow with Matt. Sometimes I wish it was you in his place. But it’s not fair for him. I’m going to leave him and come to you Bruce. I’ll come back just as you had begged to years ago.
Brucie… I’m sorry for leaving that day. Have I told you how sorry I am? I know I’m late for five years but please Bruce, if you’re reading this forgive me.
Come back if you can. Come back because I can’t stand being with someone that loves me and thinks he can replace your love.
I still love you.

I saw you on the street today. You looked bright and beautiful. You haven’t aged one bit, though I could see the faint bags under your eyes. How are your night time activities going?
Speaking of which, thanks for saving me the other day. I’d love it if you talked one bit to me. Well okay.. you might’ve not recognized me. It’s okay. Emma sends her regards and love.
Still think I love you

I’m getting married. I can’t write a lot. Matt is with me all the time. With the letter there is an invitation. If you still love me, I’m sorry for it. I want you to be there Bruce.
Yours until I get married

I’m writing to tell you, that I finally found the courage to give up on you. I couldn’t go on like that when you lived your crazy life, ignoring all my letters and my love. You’re not coming back. I know. I’m sorry I kept sending you these messages. You didn’t even come to my marriage. And then I realized, there at the isle, that I was ready to give up on the man that loved me to have a moment with you. I’m sorry Bruce. I never thought I’d stop loving you.
PS: Emma does not send her regards anymore.

I never thought you’d be so full of shit and egoistic. You could have st least answered to one of my letters. Nevertheless, I’m sorry for your loss. I loved Dick too.

you have a son now. Guess what? I have my own kid too. She’s a beautiful baby girl. I know I’m bothering you once again, but your son is a very beautiful boy. Matt is fighting for his life at a hospital due to an accident. I’m afraid he’s going to die and I’d be left alone once again. Not that you had to know that.

Dick is back! I saw him. Tell him i was t to meet him, I’ve missed this kid so much.
Any way. This will be my very last letter to you. Knowing you won’t come back; it’s been ten years already, I wanted to tell you that loving you has made me a happy person. I was always full of love in my heart, when I’d see you, be it on TV or randomly on the street surrounded by reporters and photographers. Matt died, but me and Cindy are doing fine. Emma helps a lot.
I wish you were part of my life, but apparently we were never right. I still can’t get that night out of my mind. How I managed to leave you, even if you begged me not to. I was a ruthless bitch, who thought could make everything better by sending a letter once a year.
Greetings to your son(s)…
I was, am, and always will be madly in love with you.
Alfred held the letters tightly in his hands, while going down the stairs to the batcave. It was time now. Time for Bruce to realise, what not wanting to see you all these years had caused. How much his heart had darkened and moreover, how much had yours.
He set the letters on the desk, right next to Bruce’s right hand.
“ What are these?” He demanded to know.
“Some words you should have read earlier, sir.”

I’ve been trying to find words, but they don’t seem to come easily to me. Three days ago, I read your letters for the first time. I’ll be at Wayne Enterprises, waiting for you. I can’t wait to meet you to my other sons and Dick cannot wait to se you again too.
Bring your daughter too. We have daycare.
Let this be our new start
