Dear Frances, It's nice to hear from you

Dear Frances,

It's nice to hear from you it's been awhile. I suppose you've been busy living your dream. I'm proud of you for that. I don't know if I can leave so easily. Mom and I are doing find. Mom misses Chelsea terribly. At fist she called Chelsea every hour but then she decied it would be good practice for when I went away. As  I've said before I'm not sure I can. I know I should leave, I'm not really living here. I've never dated, never been kissed. I've hardly workeded, I don't have much time for friends, hanging out.

Chelsea is doing fabulously...oddly enough. Last time I saw her, she was making a man out of clothes she found on the streets. If anyone asks what she is doing she says "Just ignore me I'm schizoprenic". Lindie is trying to find a gallery that will display Chelsea's artwork. I think mainly to get them out of their basement. Dad kind of ignores her because he has no idea how to relate to her. I admit I do too. Although we are close in age we have nothing in common. I wish Chelsea would have a friend or two. Some one to talk about her art and the things she sees in her head.

About the Jem girl, whatever her name is be careful and don't be cruel. I haven't told you this but I really think Iyou should know.  I saw her a couple of weeks ago just staring into a bridal shop. She quickly turned towards me and for two seconds I saw that her eyes were rimmed in red. I don't think she ever pictured someone else waiting for her at the end of the aisle. She has had that dream for so long...maybe she''s trapped in it. Let her go gently, don't keep her hanging on it's not fair.

Your Favorite Sister, Ellen

The End
