Chapter 21: What If You're Over My Sh*t?

RECIPENT: Rachel Isles
SENDER: Marc Isles

You’re better with words. I guess that’s why you were a good teacher. I guess that’s why you’re a good writer. I’m not as good with words as you are; I’m a numbers man. In the limo, last week, I didn’t have the words to express myself. But I do now.

I read your book. I have to admit that I hadn't read it before because I know your book is a collection of your diary entries. I figured I already knew how it all ended. But after Kevin's interpretation of it, I knew I had to read it.

I couldn’t believe what I was reading.

The characters that he described, and how they interacted with each other, weren’t what I remember. It was only then that it dawned on me: Rachel and I have two different versions of the same story.

I got your book yesterday and stayed up all night reading it, while Janie slept. Wasn’t a smart move but I had to see why this is Kevin’s favorite book. I had to see this masterpiece that you’ve been working on. I had to read the book that people can’t stop talking it. Something about your success gives me pride, as crazy as that sounds. For me, you and I are an extension of each other. Your success feels like mine. Now, about your book.

I'm sorry. I need to say that first. If this book is what people guess it is, a real account of our relationship, then I don't deserve to be married to you.

Jax doesn’t love Simone. He likes her. He thinks she’s good-looking, in that good-girl kind of way. He likes being around her. But it’s clear that she LOVES him. She's loved him from the very beginning. So that's where I want to start.

Your book jumps right into the night  Simone saw Jax for the first time. He was in the library, and she was with her roommate Vanessa. Jax was studying, reading his math book, concentrating on the formulas in front of him.

But Jax wasn’t studying. Not in reality.

Jax had already seen Simone. He happened to be talking to someone who was standing by the door that she was about to walk into. And so, while Simone was approaching the library’s glass doors, Jax already saw her coming. By the time she walked in, he already knew that she was about 5’8” or 5’9” and that she liked to smile. He knew that she talked with her hands. He knew that she was a new face on campus. And still, people were walking by her saying hi. She was already popular. He noticed that she had the same smile for everyone, no matter who the person was. He noticed that she dressed nice.

He knew that he was out of her league.

She was a pretty girl. He was a guy from L.A. All he had was his brain. She had that and everything else. So, before Simone even opened the door, Jax knew one thing: he wasn’t the guy for her.

Throughout the book, for her to think that he never loved her was nothing but insecurity on Jax’s part.

I love you. I always have. I hate that you’ve never felt like I did.
I did.
I do.
I’m sorry.
