I never knew who my dad was.
My mum says he was brave.
He died when I was young.
I'm seventeen now.
And there's this girl...
Her name's Anastasia Vermont.
She drives me mad.
And not in a good way.
Update: She put gum in my hair!
Who still does that?
Her brother came in today too.
To talk to the class about some football thing.
I don't see why everyone likes the kid.
He's a complete arse.
He dated one girl, then married her sister.
Update: I asked her out on a date.
I thought she'd say no.
I was wrong.
Update: I took her for lunch at some 50's themed diner.
She loved it.
I was stupid and asked her for a second date.
Update: It's been a while since I've spoken to you.
I hope you're well.
I'm getting married.
Anastasia and I.
Never thought I'd see the day.
Mum told me the truth about dad.
She and dad were both criminals.
It doesn't matter though.
Dad is dead and mum is a changed woman.
Anastasia is pregnant!
I'm going to be a dad!
If it's a boy we will name it Abel.
Like my dad.
I can't wait.
She told me at the wedding.
Apparently the look on my face was priceless.
Anyway, mum needs me to help her with Christmas dinner.
My name is Abel.
I found this in my dads office.
How I find this after it's too late.
I haven't seen him in years.
Mum thinks he's dead.
That's what she hopes at least.
Update: I'm back.
It's me, Aramis.
Did you miss me?
Abel and Anastasia aren't pleased I'm back.
I went to make amends with my dad's old enemies.
I'm sorry I never told you.
I hated you,
or at least that's what I thought.
You left without saying goodbye.
Please come back dad.
I miss you.
Why did you have to die?
If you could have changed anything,
Or would you leave it as is?
I'm sorry dad.
I'm sorry I disappointed you.
Reply: You could never disappoint me Abel.
It's my own fault what happened to me.
I should have left old bridges burned.
I hope you're well my son.
I love you.
