Today I'm going to make some people mad. Some of you may be mad because you were hoping that you might be able to snag Lend for yourself, some might be mad because you thought that he and Evie would always be together, but I'm here to set the record straight. Lend and I are very close, and our relationship is quickly progressing. If you doubt me, just take a look at two of our letters to each other, and it will be clear.
Hey!! It’s been awhile since I’ve seen you and I just wanted to see how you were doing! I wanted to tell you that
I am in love with youI think you’re a great guy. I’m wondering if you would consider breaking it off with Evie for me.I hope you and Evie are very happy together. I know it must be hard being so far away from each other, with you in college and her still in high school, plus, the fact that some new guy seems to be hanging around her a lot. Do you know who he is? Why does he keep popping up around Evie? I know that if you were my boyfriend that I would never look at another guy.I hope it’s not causing any problems.
How is college life going? Do you prefer studying to the stressful life of fighting monsters? What’s your favorite college food, or do you miss eating at home with your dad? I think I would pretty much live on Ramen noodles if I were in college. Has it been hard for you to keep the same appearance every day so that no one notices that you can change? Being able to look like anyone you want must be pretty cool! Do you ever change
your appearance just for fun or to mess with people? I think I would do that all the time if I could. Like how you showed yourself to Evie as a different person just to see how she would react. I loved that!
See how much I would appreciate you if you were mine?
From what I can tell, Evie's such a funny girl. I mean, I think I laugh at almost every word she says. How do you not crack up during every conversation you have with her? I think that if we knew each other we could be friends,
except that I want to steal her boyfriend.Maybe I’ll have to give her a chance.
Let me know how things are going! I’ve missed hearing from you!
I love you and dream about you every night!
unless you change your mind,
P.S. I'm enclosing a picture :D
Do you hang out at the diner a lot? If you do, tell Evie I said hi next time she’s working if she looks bored. I’d tell you to pretend to be me to freak her out, but we both know she’d see right through it… Also, order the Oreo shake. It’s my all-time favorite. And one of the few things Grnlllll doesn’t mess up.
But thanks! Evie and I are really happy. I’m a lucky guy. I do sometimes change my appearance for fun just to make her laugh—she has the best laugh in the world. And you’re right, she makes me laugh all the time. Sometimes when she’s not trying to. She has this face she makes when she’s tying her shoelaces, and she doesn’t know she’s doing it, but she does it every single time and the way her nose wrinkles, I can’t help laughing.
Okay, that’s probably more info than you wanted.
College is good! It was weird going from high school where I knew everyone (even if they didn’t really know me) to college where I’m very anonymous. And honestly, a bit of relief, too. I don’t feel like I’m being watched here. I got really nervous sometimes in school that I would mess up something about my appearance and blow my cover. The only downside is I have to have my own room which is more expensive than sharing one, but I couldn’t very well have a roommate wake up in the middle of the night to see that his roomie has gone crystal clear…
Unless my roommate was a massive druggie or something. But that wouldn’t be cool, either.
The only downside to college is the distance from Evie. I also miss getting to help my dad out with the paranormals who need us. But studying takes up so much of my time I don’t have much of a chance to miss it. Right now I’m mostly taking GEs and biology classes, but I’m going to take a life drawing class next semester that I’m excited about. I already know the perfect model. She’s gorgeous and blonde and carries around a pink Taser.
Anyway, thanks for writing! And I know you’ll find someone who will make you
almost as happy as Evie and I are together happy.
Your Very Platonic Friend
so you don’t have to meet Tasey,
So I don't have to meet Tasey? Yeah....I think it's clear that he's in love with me, he's only trying to protect me! I hope Evie doesn't get too mad and try to tase me!! I am really sorry to the rest of you, and to Evie, but true love can not be stopped. And really....why should it be?
