Excited to get it open, she looks inside and sees nothing but a bunch of papers. There are copies of her parents’ wills and some other important papers about the house. It also contains all of their medical cards and social security numbers, and there’s a big stack of money off to the side. “There must be at least a few thousand dollars here. Maybe they were saving this for a rainy day.” She puts everything back the way she found it when an envelope falls out of the stack of papers. It’s addressed to Cash.
“What’s this?” she murmurs. It looks pretty old, and it’s dated the same day they said her grandfather died. She glances around the room and opens the envelope.
After I found out you got fired because of a girl you’ve been seeing, I knew it had to be serious. I also knew that it was only a matter of time before you realized you no longer needed me. I suppose I deserve to be alone. I haven’t exactly been father of the year, or decade for that matter. Don’t think for one second I’m asking for your forgiveness. Once your mother passed away, a piece of me died with her. Unfortunately for you, it was the good part. It’s time for me to go. Don’t worry, I’ll see you again. They say you’re as good as the company you keep. I hope this girl is worth the company and trouble. Goodbye.
