The letter

Dear Jeremy,

By the time you read this I may be dead.

Colin always said that he would kill me if I was ever unfaithful. I’m sure he knows about us. If I admitted anything he would kill you as well. No matter what he does, I will never tell.

I have told my friend Julie to post this if anything happens to me.

Love, Anna

“Colin, I’m so sorry for your loss. To be taken in an accident like that, so terrible.”

Julie placed the letter in his hand. “Anna asked me to post this…”
