Often times, I'd think back on the words Henry had told me during the times I still worked as one of his underlings. The man may be mad, but what he says tend to resonate very well within our group.

Just before he died, he suddenly summoned me to his office. He was staring out the windows, not seeming like himself. I put it aside as one of his usual acts before sending me on another job, he was known to be good at it, after all. I stood there, waiting for orders to come and get it over with, but he never uttered a word. With only the two of us in the room, minutes passed, yet it felt like hours had gone by. I thought about cracking a joke of sort like always, but the pressure had tightened my lungs, I couldn't bring myself to even move my lips. Just as I thought this would went on forever, with his back still facing me, he said in a calm, quiet voice.

"You know, in the future, even when you think you've achieved absolute happiness, remember that.. nothing in this world is permanent. After all, we were all born to destroy each other sooner or later, whether you want it or not. That's just the way it is, haha. Don't you think that's true, Hadie?"

I hadn't known how to respond to that. And before I even thought of an answer, Henry already dismissed me.


It's been so long since Henry's death, and somehow recently, I catch those words lingering in my mind more and more. Though I try my best to brush it off, they also end up coming back at the end of the day. How strange. Well, not like it matters much, right? After all, I'm more worried about Ted lately. He seems... distant somehow. Before our marriage, I'd catch him hanging out with that coworker of his. Mallery..?, is his name if I remember correctly. I'm not sure if something happened between them but I barely see my husby even going out of the house these days. When I ask him about it, he only smiles and tells me he wants to be closer to me than ever. While I appreciate the gesture, I'm not sure what to think about this at all. It feels as if, he's hiding something from me. I hope he'll open up to me about it soon, aha. I'm sure he will, we're already married, after all, if there are any obstacles in the way, we go through them together. So talk to me about it soon, ok Teddy? Put your trust in me just as I put my faith in you.
