Book Angel Booktopia welcomes Martin King today to share his words of love to Darcy – prepare to swoon
Sorry if that sounds a bit formal. But then you’ll never read this letter anyway so I suppose it doesn’t really matter.
I’m writing this letter because there’s something I’ve been meaning to tell you. It all started about a year ago. At least, I think it did… it’s hard to put an exact date on it.
I know we’ve been friends as long as either of us can remember, but about a year ago something happened. I don’t remember exactly what we’d been doing, but I remember that it was a Friday, a sunny Friday like today. I do remember us both sitting on the steps outside the old courthouse eating ice creams. That was the precise moment—that time when we were both sitting on the courthouse steps. I remember looking at you, as the sun caught your blonde hair, and you smiled at me, and you asked me what I was staring at, and that’s when I realised that I love you.
This will probably be strange for you to hear. At least it would be if I was ever brave enough to give you this letter. If I did give ever give this letter to you, you would probably wonder why it’s taken me a whole year to tell you how I feel. The short answer is that I’m a coward, but it’s also because I’ve been afraid of risking our friendship. I love you, but I also love you as a friend, and if things ever became awkward between us I couldn’t bear it.
So there you go. That’s the truth.
P.S. One day, I might be man enough to actually tell you.
