A letter from Billy-

I’ve laid in this bed for weeks now, surrounded by nothing but the absence of you. It’s killing me slowly. All I want is for this to be over and have you wrapped safely in my arms once again. That may or may not ever happen, and I’m learning to come to terms with it all.

I’ve watched Raul sell women: battered and bruised women, each of them so strung out on drugs that they’re unaware of what’s happening to them. I’ve watched Blake grieve for a woman I don’t think he’ll ever be able to save, though I’ll never tell him that. I know what it’s like to lose you and there’s no other punishment in this world that can compare to not being with the one you love.

I’ve watched Tom, my old boss, make deals and shake hands with the devil. I’ve watched years and years of work go down the drain because none of us were smart enough to figure all of this out before now.
