I've been renting this place once a year for the last ten years on the anniversary of my best friends, death the same spot. Our group used to go for years before he died after his death. I made the decision to just come here alone. You see Jacon, I jake's the dead We were always the closest and when I say he was my best friend, I mean it in the most since we were like songs I walked out of the bedroom and into the kitchen taken late evening nap. It was dark now like so many years before there is this nasty storm side in they're going to the beach that day or anywhere. For that matter, I really never left the house on those anniversary, weekends, stephen side, drink jack Daniels manages favorite, I watched old videos of us in college me jane.

Operational anymore, but the cool thing Old phones. Is the text messages live on them in perpetuity exist? photographs, ghosts and all the remaining tax between Jake, and I, on that far self jack on ice, the bottle down on the counter, with a sharp plank that fill small house for a brief fleeting moments. down to the living room?
What are you all box sat on a coffee, the letters of ammonia is. I sat on how to coastal this one said: Heaven is should a home by the water own home was a seizure. My favorite coastal said holmes, sweet beach I probably left that one back in the kitchen, the inside of the box was like a tiny world in and of itself a different area in the universe tat I once knew so well, no long could visit logic. Luckily, I was smart enough to bring your phone charger The better on the farmers was as jake by this time. So my ass over the edge of the sofa reach the outlet and plug your phone it Why
it's crashed on the beach and rain belted. The windows on the west side of the old house, I listened to the wild weather outside while the phone slowly groaned to life, the phone the time capsule. No doubt there is a lot to explore, but With the jack I just poured working it's magic. My boy from before the nap and come back with a quick and authoritative conviction I opened the messages froze. I looked big glass, a jack. He was usually to blame and back in my phone You see mining jake's. Last conversation used to be down line quite away after jake died. go out, attacks from friends and family. Tell me how much they loved me, but now it was right at the top. I clicked it open. Rain crashed against the window
my entire world shifted for fast and aggressive mind. One was looking at. new message from Jake my heart began race quickly. I said at grabbing my drink. I I took a long hard pull that started. Realizing jack might be part of the jig problem. I'm now having on my phone no explainable reason, maybe to distract myself. I walked toward that cabinet that all rentals have with all the games. Drink in one hand, the other hand shaking as if something were stuck to it. I opened the cabinet and pulled out a tattered old clue borg slap on the table near by My breeding was heavy, as I ran my hand through my air I detest sweat on my palm as I wiped my face with it. Then, I went back to the surface. The fund seemed heavier than normal, but I could the ones old text read between Jake and I
texted me after He was dead. I read it a man, it's been about ten years now. I know you can't read this, but I just had to say something: you have no idea how much I miss you. Maybe you do, but I miss you a lot, I love your brother. I like twitching like crazy. I couldn't focus with Steven real. How did he The text back right. So I did jake the gravity round my hand pulled harder than I can explain, but I had sent it's me. I shudder again running my hand down my face sweating now fuck this. Imagining. He won't reply. I paced and paste
the phone lit. I ran over to it, had come through from jake? Don't fuck with me? This used to be my best friends, old phone number who this just like him to go on the exact first, seventeen in this. There is, something that can prove he's real. How do I know the stick? I type you first, eight years old on my traveling, a girl, I told you I'd marry someday. was the phone showed no activity for some seconds, then ah geronimo emma on. but I wanted more ok, I typed, but what about you? We were twenty two drinking a bottle of jacket are
I've been table. I asked you what you almost afraid of what did you say? Another pause having kids my heart. again I took a drink of jack. The was happening. Then the phone. Try again. I told you I want to kids, but I was scared. My dad was such an angry man and I'm an angry Dude, I told you. I was terrified that I'd be bad, my kids single to rolled down my cheek, I don't know how I was taxing my best friend I texted. Do I don't know what I mean did you. I really didn't think this would work not just to say something I have so many questions like what it's like. Where you are

Really two things are needed to know was Ok, and could he forgive me honest not that exciting naturally down in the south. Now I'm married that line down in the south now didn't mean when I thought it meant regardless I was happy to hear you married. I responded now he could get married down there. to get married anywhere. Smart ass still couldn't believe what was happening when he died
nothing was the same without him. But now here I am texting him. What about you? He asked I looked around. I spent a lot of time at that beach house man. Well at least once a year. I swear it still like your chief body spray took a while for him to respond, and my began race, whose contact now with theirs. As it came through. I must take place, I must being there with you too. You have no fucking idea. How much I miss you? This is insane that we're texting like this there with you. I miss you too tight. The wind rougher than usual picked up and blasted the west side windows.
waited for a response. I reread our old tax every year, the last ones we sent to each other. Jake and I were always alike, even indebted seems I wish you could be here. What is your world look like I was afraid of what you say. I never considered what Heaven or how might look like, but I'd only hoped whatever jake. God was good. He deserved good. You typed back same as ours. When you are around just of little updated. I guess that really honest Does the world we laughed copied over I guess in some ways that isn't too bad, where does that mean everyone was there or if they shared world together, so I asked him are the others there

I am so fucking. Sorry, I'm sorry for everything I took another drink of my jack, terrified of what he'd say. Did he resent me for what I did to him? Did he forgive me? The text thread showed three dots. Then they went away three more showed up. Then. Guy and again I took another drink and I said something wrong. Finally, a text came through and the light from the screen lit up my face. I'm not sure how I felt, but I felt of took one last smooth sip of jack and set the phone down as much as I wanted to text him
