“Dear Marlon,

These last few weeks have been amazing in ways I can’t even explain, but I’ve heard from Upstairs. I’m no longer your guardian. After you’ve read this note, you’ll forget our time together, but there is hope — a way that we can be with each other. Hold on to that. I can’t tell you any more.

I love you,
