I’ll become everyone’s poster child, even if it’s a lie.

But I hold all the cards. Cameron will be none the wiser.

“Are you still up, Melanie?”

“Barely, since you’ve taken away my phone.”

“That letter you were writing. Is it a letter of forgiveness?”

“Why would you ask that?”

“I thought maybe you felt something — finally — perhaps a tad of guilt?”

“Ugh, what do I have to feel guilty for?” I call out to her.

Silence.

“That’s what I thought,” I mutter.

“You know, Melanie, if you don’t know, then there is no point in me telling you.”

My mouth drops open and I’m about to snap back, but I can hear her footsteps marching down the hall away from me.
