Of course I miss you already. It’s been three days. I got so used to seeing you every day at school that it feels like there’s a big hole next to me, even though it’s not like you were constantly there.
Wow, “a big hole next to me.” Real poetic, huh? I guess I should leave the poetry to you. That was really sweet, by the way. I printed it out and I’m keeping it in my pocket. ❤
I suggested the trip idea to Aunt Pru and she wasn’t very enthusiastic about it. Neither of my parents will go with me, of course—they’re workaholics and they don’t think they can leave their cat alone overnight. They don’t really like the idea of me going by myself, either, but they know they can’t stop me if I decide to.
Honestly, I don’t really like the idea of going by myself, either. I know I wouldn’t be alone once I got there, but I’d have to take the train by myself, and it’s kind of complicated, so it makes me nervous. I’d be afraid of missing my connection or going in the wrong direction or something. And then I’d be so flustered I’d be afraid to ask for help.
That’s not a reason not to go, of course. I’ll just keep working on Aunt Pru, and if she won’t go, I’ll figure out how to make it easier.
Send me your work schedule so I can call you when you finish for the day.
❤ Dawn ❤

So, is that one email? a chat-history? or a mixture?
It seems like chat at first with an answer – but then there is the signature like an email at the end 😕
So, where will the trip go to?
It’s one email, but it’s a response to an email that Rico sent.
Oh, so the first part is part of the previous email?
I guess you could use ‘>’ at the beginning of the line to signify that 😉

No, it’s not a quote, it’s Dawn replying to something in Rico’s previous email. He must have asked if she missed him. Or maybe she said she missed him in an email before, and he said “what, you miss me already?”
I tried to imply that the emails were going back and forth without actually writing all of the emails in the conversations… maybe it didn’t succeed as well as I hoped!
oh, I think it was the “big hole next to me” that threw me off – it seems the next paragraph answers to that – but she is just self-deprecating…? and then she prints it off???
that is what made me think this is a quote…
Yes, she’s self-deprecating, just making fun of herself for being unpoetic.
In his last email, Rico sent her a poem he wrote. That’s what she printed off!
ok, thanks, that cleared it up for me 🙂
