Hi. My name is Rachel. You don't know me, but my friend said that you were a good person, and you're really cute. I don't normally do this, but I've been alone for a long time now, and just figured I would give it a try. I'm very shy, which is why I'm writing instead of going to meet you or calling your phone number. I will tell you that a lot of people think I'm pretty and smart, and I care about other's feelings. If you're not interested, that's totally cool. If you are, please write back to me, my po box number is on the return address. Hope to hear from you soon. Bye.

March 23

Hi Rachel. Thank you for writing to me, I appreciate the interest. Yes, it's true, I'm looking for somebody, but I really don't know if now is the right time for me. I too am a very private person. I'm sure that you're a very terrific person, from your description, but I'm just not certain that I would be good for anybody right now. I wish you all the best of luck in the future. By the way, would you mind telling me the name of your friend who told you about me? Just curious, is all. Thanks again, bye.

March 27

I'm really sorry to hear that you're not interested. Thanks for writing back to me, nonetheless. I would just like to keep my friend out of it, if that's ok. I don't want to embarass her. Hope you understand. Take care, and best of luck to you as well. Bye.

Hi Rachel. I hope you remember me, I'm the guy you're friend talked to you about. I realize it's been some time since we last wrote each other, but you really do sound like a nice person, and, quite frankly, I'm tired of trying to find the right one, and coming up empty. If you're still at all interested, please let me know. Thanks, bye.

PS- My name is Robert. I have blonde hair and blue eyes. I"m a little on the short side, and skinny. I like watching sports and murder mysteries on TV. If you write me back, please tell me what you like to watch. I also LOVE to read, hope that's cool and all.

May 3

Hi Robert!! I"m so glad to hear from you again, and yes, I'm definitely interested still. Sorry it took me so long to answer back, I was out of town. I like murder mysteries, too, and absolutely, positively enjoy reading. Would you like to meet me sometime? The library would be perfect, it's really not too far from where I live. Totally excited right now, please write me back.

May 8

Hi Rachel, thanks for writing me back. I'm happy to hear you like the same things I do, maybe this is like fate or something. I feel an instant connection with you. Meeting at the library is fine with me, but before that, would you mind telling me what you look like first? Not that I'm judgemental or anything, it's just that I'd like to get a good mental picture of who I"m about to meet. Bye beautiful.

May 14

As soon as I got your letter, I set it down on the table and wrote you this in return. I can't believe this is happening, wow!! Instead of trying to describe myself, I figured it would probably just be better to send you a picture. This one was taken a little over a year ago, by our mutual friend. I really hope you like what you see, because it's all yours, if you want it. I hope that isn't scaring you off or anything. Please let me know when you'd like to meet!! Bye handsome.

May 20

Hi rachel. I wasn't going to write this to you, but you're a good person, and I didn't think it would be right to just leave you hanging. I'm really sorry, something else has come up, and I don't think it's really wise for me to start a new relationship at this time. I think your picture is really nice, thanks for sending it to me. I hope that you're not mad at me. I would love to have you as a friend. Talk to you later, bye.

May 25

A friend!! You have to be fucking kidding me, right? What's the matter, robert? My breasts not big enough for you, huh, stud? Didn't like something on my face? Well, screw you!! Something came up, what a bunch of bullshit!! Please get rid of that picture, I don't want to be your "friend", and I don't want you having it. I just want to forget this whole thing happened.

PS- Fuck you!!

July 7

Hi, my darling. Robert again. I hope you haven't forgotten about me, something tells me you haven't. I didn't forget about you. I know what you said about the picture, but I kept it anyway. I've been doing things to it. You're really very pretty, sorry I didn't realize it earlier. I want you, and I know you still want me. I'm so horny!! Why don't you come on over? I wrote my address instead of my po on the return address this time. Come on over, sexy. Promise we'll have a good time.

PS- I'm naked right now.

July 13

Leave me alone, creep!! I can't believe this shit. Just leave me the fuck alone. I'm not interested in you anymore, I'm not coming over. So forget about it. Go get a magazine and whack off to it, you sick motherfucker!! I mean it, leave me alone. If you write me another letter, I'm showing it to the cops.

July 15

The cops won't help you. Trust me. What's the matter? I thought we had a connection, once. Come on over, I mean it. Don't make me do something we'll both regret. Are you fucking somebody else? Is that it? I'll take care of him, too. Nobody's going to stand in between me and my baby. I love you. I know you love me too, don't try to fight it. See you soon. Bye lover.

July 16

Please stop. I"m begging you. I'm giving you one last chance. If you write me again, I'm going to the police, and giving them your address. Dont' do this. It's never going to happen between us, you have to accept that. Now stop it, please, Robert.

PS- I would seriously consider getting some mental help.

July 17

I don't need fucking mental help, you bitch!! I can write you whenever, you got that? I told you before, the cops can't help you, so stop being so fucking stupid!! Now get your fucking ass over here before I have to come to you. Believe me, you don't want that, not at all. If I have to go over there, I'll be mad. Very mad. very very very Mad. I have a knife. A sharp one, just for you. Now do the right thing. See you soon.

July 19

You don't scare me, asshole!! I gave you your chance, and now I'm going to the police. I hope they fuck your ass up real good before they throw you in the slammer!! You don't know where I live, I'm not stupid, I never told you. And even if you somehow did, come on over here with your precious knife, it would be no match for my .38. You hear that, fuckwad? I'll make your ass look like swiss cheese by the time I'm done pumping you full of bullets. Don't fuck with me, I'm warning you!!!

July 19 1/2

I'M COMING FOR YOU, RACHEL!!!!!!!!!!

Excerpt from the Greenville Daily Post:

A man was found dead today in his apartment room at the Sunrise Inn on Chestnut Street. The man, who police have identified as Johnathon Spires, suffered from an extreme case of schizophrenia, which included a multiple personality disorder as well as severe dementia. Mr. Spires had previously sought treatment in the past, as a thorough search of his apartment turned up several open bottles of medicinal pills. Unfortuneately, they didn't work so well. Mr. Spires committed suicide sometime in the early morning hours of July 21.

"He was always a quiet person, always had his face buried in one book or another," comments his landlady, Evelyn White. "He really didn't go out all that much, except for groceries, stuff like that, and I've seen him walking by the library every now and again. He was always mumbling to himself, too."

Ms. White is the one who called the police after she heard a lot of shouting coming from Mr. Spires's room, and then the loud bang of a gunshot. It is currently being theorized by the Greenville Police Department that Mr. Spires was arguing with himself, or, rather, his different personalites were, before he committed suicide. The vicitim was found dead at the scene, a knife protruding from his lower abdomen and a .38 revolver dropped by his feet.

"John Spires was a very sick person," says Chief Largent. "In addition the the pill bottles, we also found a number or wigs and some makeup under his bed. We also discovered some letters that he presumably wrote to himself, which actually detail the circumstances of the suicide. They were written in two surprisingly different writing styles. This is irrefutible proof that not only did Mr. Spires kill himself, but he had multiple personalities, as well."

Police have searched for family members related to the victim, but, as of yet, nobody has been reported. If you are of relation or an acquaintance to Mr. Spires, please contact the Greenville Police Department as soon as you possible can.

"END"
