I like banana yogurt. Willow knows I like banana yogurt. She always remembers to buy it when she goes to the grocery store on the corner of Maple and Fifth. You always remember what I like, don't you?

I wanted to go to the Prom with Mary Beth Perkins. She was so cute. I stared at her all year during sixth period Chemistry and dreamed of her long, black, hair trailing across my belly like a thousand tiny fingers. But she was straight. I knew she was straight. So, I didn't ask.

Where is Dawn? We were watching Dawn today, weren't we? Buffy would kill us if anything happened to her. Her sister is her life. Just like Willow is mine. Willow's beautiful. She's the most beautiful thing I've ever seen. All red like fire. Powerful and hot and bright. I can't lose her. We can't lose Dawn.

I hate this sweatshirt. It's baggy and ugly and makes me feel like Rainman. Don't you understand that I'm in here? That I want out? That I want my own clothes? Dress me in my maroon peasant blouse. The one that you like. The one that turns you on. And hold me. Hold me close and make the lights come on.

Why is it dark, Willow? Why is it dark behind your eyes? Oh, Honey...no...put the dark magicks away. Lock them far away, deep inside the box. With me. With my love. It's going to kill you if you don't slow down, Baby. If you don't slow down, it will get you. It always does.

Glory is coming.

And I'll be free.

I'll be free to love you again. Somewhere. Sometime.
