I wanted to tell you how sorry I am, but I didn't think I could say it to your face. You took such great care of me and I can only hope that I too brought joy to your life. For the past ten days, I felt like we could be a family but there was always something calling to me. Telling me that I need to move on, that there is so much more for me to do. What that is I can not say but I know now that it is why I came here.
As you know, I can't remember anything before I fell down here but I will always remember our time together.
The pie you made me on my first night in the underground. How even tho I was so exhausted that I fell right to sleep. You still left me a slice for when I woke up. You even used your magic to keep it from getting cool.
There was also the day that we went bug catching. It was so fun and we found so many bugs that we started to give them out to every Froggit that we passed. They were so pleased that they ended up paying us for the bugs. So on the way home we got ourselves some donuts from the spider bakery.
I even remember the night that you cooked snails for dinner. They were so gross, but you loved them so much. Just watching you smile as you scarf down snail after snail, I couldn't help but eat them too. you laughed every time I swallowed one and my face scrunched up. We laughed and played games with the shells until bedtime.
The next day I was so sick, that I could hardly get out of bed. I remember waking up to see you crying next to me. You were so worried about me, you never left my side that day. It was also that same day that I first called you mom. I was nerves at first, it kind of just slipped out, but it made you so happy.
When you hugged me, I never wanted to let you go and for the next few days I didn't. The only problem was that the call was getting stronger and when I asked you about what was beyond the ruins. You got scared. So much so, that you stopped eating you snails.
You left and I followed, even tho time and time again you told me not to I had to follow you. I knew that the call was real now and that you probably knew about it the entire time. I had to know what it was but what happened next ... ... ........
I'm Sorry mom
I'm so sorry
I have to go. I know that you told me not to come back and I won't, but I want you to know that I still love you with all my heart.
And that I am going to be OK. You have taught me so much. How to make friends, how to protect myself, how to see the world in a bright light. That no matter how dark it seems, if I stay Determined that I can find the light in everyone.
I don't know if I can still call you this, but I love you MOM
