My beautiful Rey,
I am so fortunate to have had the opportunity to see you again in such a short time, and what an encounter it was! Racing you to the artifact through the dark forest was so much fun. Those stepstone things and that cliff face were an excellent test of agility, and I must say that your abilities are vastly superior to mine, in that respect. I think it was only your inexperience with the Force that caused you to fall behind in that final stretch, and allowed me to reach the artifact first. I have been training for over a decade, so there is no shame in losing to me. Though I cannot honestly deny some satisfaction at finally beating you at something, if only to show you what I am capable of when I’m not minutes away from bleeding to death.
Supreme Leader will be furious when he finds out that I let you claim the artifact shard anyway. And yet, I find myself strangely indifferent to his potential wrath. Why should I fear his threats when he’s never made good on a single promise? And giving it to you - well, how could I pass up an opportunity to give you something that you actually want? You, who I would never deny anything.
But we really must discuss what happened. You know what I am talking about. You said that you didn’t know what came over you, but I do. I can feel it too, remember? I suppose it might have been the heat of the moment, and it might have been the power of the artifact affecting your behavior, but the fact remains - you kissed me. You kissed me you kissed me you kissed me! Force, I will never get sick of writing those words!
I admit, I have spent most of the last few days obsessing over that beautiful moment, replaying it again and again in my head.The moment I handed you the artifact, you looked at me. You looked at me with something that was not only not-hate, but something pretty far from it. How you smiled at me and said: Have you ever considered giving up being evil? Because you’re not very good at it. And then you kissed me. It was only a moment. But it was a kiss. A kiss you gave to me.
I suppose there is some truth to what you said. I really do feel like I’ve been losing my touch, lately. I will have to talk it over with grandfather.
I know you plan to seek the other half of the artifact next. I look forward to seeing you there :)
Enclosed is something to protect your eyes from the sand and dust. I know, I know, I am mansplaining desert survival to someone who has forgotten more about it than I will ever know, it’s just that - I care.
With devotion as constant as the traffic jams of Coruscant,
PS. It’s pronounced Korriban. Only tourists say “Moriband.”PPS. Youkissedmeyoukissedmeyoukissedme!!!
A little Reylo positivity. Don’t you dare lose faith. A bit of ambiguous BS about a film that hasn’t yet seen the light of day doesn’t outweigh what we’ve already seen on screen (and in canonical print) with our own eyeballs. It’s right there in TFA.
