Lillia and Treize III - The Longest Day in Ikstova (Part 1)

Chapter 1: The Things That Led Up to That Day

Dear Treize,

Are you well? I am. End.

That made for a very short letter, so I will write a little more. My relaxing summer vacation has ended and a new term has begun. I am attending secondary school as usual. I sent Carlo a letter not long ago, but he has not replied. Did you by any chance say something to him before we parted ways?

Dear Miss Lillianne Aikashia Corazòn Whittington Schultz,

It has been a while. This is Treize.
I am well, but I cannot say the same for my poor motorcycle—I drove it to death and the engine finally gave out.

As I already wrote in my previous letter, I owe you so much for what happened this summer. Please convey my thanks to Allison as well.

About Carlo: he might not know how to read and write yet, so give him some time to send you a reply.

Autumn is almost over in Ikstova now. The photo on this postcard was taken by my mother and printed in the village photo studio.

Dear Treize,

Wow! That’s a great picture! Is your mother a professional? I asked Mom, but she wouldn’t tell me.Here’s a Capital District postcard in return—a picture of the bustling city. Don’t you miss it?

Dear Miss Lillia Schultz,

I love you! I love you very much!
I’m sorry for the sudden nature of this letter.
But I could not hold myself back any longer.
I’ve rewritten this message so many times that the letter is going nowhere; so I am being very brief.
Any response is fine by me, so please reply soon.
I am prepared to accept even a rejection.

Archer Bernardo, third-year.

P.S. We took history class together last year! Do you remember me?
