Unsent

 

I have a confession to make, Asao.

After all these months of complaining about himÖ I think I might actually be falling for Jack.

Itís crazy, right? I mean, the guy literally shares his personality with Jack the freakiní Ripper. If that isnít the definition of the guy your mother warned you about, I donít know what is.

I can just hear you laugh and say itís my ďfascination with dangerous toysĒ again. And I donít know, maybe youíre right. Jack is so insanely cool in a fight with an E.I., I canít even forget it when heís being a jerk. (Not even when heís being cool and a jerk at the same timeóbecause yeah, he can totally do that. Iíve got no idea how.)

But then, maybe itís something about what a mystery he is. I wish I could get his real story. It was only just recently that I even learned his real name.

I didnít tell you about that before, did I? Anyway, itís Adam. Adam Muirhead. Has a really nice British ring to it, doesnít it?

And thatís all Iíve got. I still donít know anything about who Adam is when heís not JackÖ or even if heís really anyone but Jack at all. With a lot of other E-gene holders, itís so much easier to tell where one personality begins and the other ends, but Jack seems like heís never switched off. Heís kind of like Norman Bates that way, you know?

óI mean, not because heís a psycho with a big knife. (Even though he is.) I mean itís because he must be all Jack a lot of the time, but I donít think heís ever all Adam.

Maybe thatís really what this is all about. Even when he ticks me off, maybe Iím so drawn to Jack because I canít figure him out.

ÖWell, that, and because heís kind of hot.

 

Frowning at the screen of her phone, Sio Ogura breathed out a little huff. Her thumb hesitated for a moment before pressing the Save to Drafts button. She watched the email she had crafted disappear into her Unsent Messages box, where it joined a hundred others.

ÖIt was probably a good thing DOGOO didnít let her have internet access. It kept her out of trouble, right? After all, if Asao ever really read the unsent ramblings Sio had written to her, she would never be able to live it down.

The thing was, it helped just to put all these thoughts into words somewhere.
