Letters To Jo


Dear Jo, 

   How are you doing? I’m fine. Why’d you have to leave? I don’t understand. And I think it stinks that your parents got divorced. It just isn’t right. Know what I mean?
     Today was…interesting. I couldn’t stop thinking that you’d left and that I’d probably never see you again. Sometimes I wish I was a Christian like you, but I can never get myself to go to church or even glance at the Bible you gave me.
       Yeah, it’s just sitting on my top shelf in my room, collecting dust. I kind of feel bad, especially since you signed the inside. But I can’t bear to look at it. It’s really weird.
       I’ve been keeping up your blog for you, since you can’t go on now. I can’t believe your parents…never mind. But I’ve mostly just been typing up “pictures of Jesus” because I don’t know anything about the Bible and sometimes you’ve posted pictures before. Sadly, the view counts been down lately. Sometimes I think I’m a failure.
       I can still remember your face, Jo. I can see you, smiling at me. Mostly my brain remembers when we were at the park. Remember that, when I managed to sneak out of my house and join you? Yeah, I do, too. It’s my favorite memory of you.
       We were sitting on the park bench, and you just smiling at me. I can even remember exactly what we said. Can you?
      “Always keep writing, Willow,” you told me. “Don’t ever forget that I told you that.”
       “I won’t,” I’d replied. You haven’t forgotten, either, right?
       Just to say, remember those emails you always used to send me? That was great. You’d always pick a different accent and everything for your emails. That always made me laugh, though I never said so and my accents aren’t half as convincing.
     So I tell you what. From now on, I’ll change all of my accents. I hope you haven’t forgotten me, Jo. I’m sorry about your Bible. Hope you’re having a good time.
      Love,
      Willow
