Author Note: this is going to be a drabble, so chapters will be anywhere between 100-600 words.
Jasper held the letter in his hand gently, breathing in the scent he had thought he would never get to smell again. His eyes flickered to his brother and sister in venom before back to the letter in his hands.
“Open it.” Peter stated, holding a note of command but Jasper could feel his fear.
With careful hands he slipped under the seal and began to read.
My beloved family,
I know that my actions had hurt you so and I fear that I have caused irreparable damage upon you all and your love for me. But, I would do it again to save you.
Maria was and will always be a threat to you all and though I had made a deal for your freedom, I knew she would go back upon her deal if I didn’t uphold my part of the deal. Even if I did manage to take over Mexico for her, there would be no freedom for you and for me, so I chose the only thing that would set you free.
To Maria you are dead.
If you are reading this letter then Oliver and Fredrik have found you.
With a heavy heart, I write this to you my family… I grow weary of the wars and Maria will not let me go and I cannot kill her. It is she and Miguel who make sure the Americas are not besieged by the Italian Kings and they must stay in place.
I hope within time you can forgive me and remember me fondly instead of the betrayal I had done to you. By now you will understand, will know that Enyo is no more.
Forever your sister,
Rage, horror, guilt, shame and disbelief filled him. The letter dropped from his frozen fingers, his eyes watching it as it fluttered down.
How? How could this be? His sister can’t be killed; her fire would not allow it, let alone her shield. His sister, his twin was gone but he didn’t want to believe it. He couldn’t.
Author Note: Holy crap, 13 reviews for the last chapter, so I thought i’d post another!
