This may well be the final time that I confide in you, as I am now on a quest that could take me to the ends of the earth. After disposing of ‘Justine’, I made my way back to Geneva to be with my beloved Elizabeth.
After I destroyed the monster bride I returned home having unexpected news said to me. First Elizabeth slowly sat me down and told me what the news was. I was SHOCKED! I could not believe what she had told me. My eyes were full of tears. My father was ill, very ill and Henry – my best and long life friend- had died. As soon as she told me Henry had died I straight away knew it was the monster who had killed him. I was absolutely enraged.
I went to see my father. He told me before he’d die he wanted to see something happen and that something was to see me and Elizabeth getting married. And that then eventually happened. Me and Elizabeth were married. We went to Lake Como in Italy for our honeymoon. And now something I am about to tell you will sadden you to the core:
It was only half an hour that we had been on our honeymoon and something terrible and I mean horribly terrible happened….
She was DEAD.
The first thing I saw was the shattered window. Then I saw the bed. I could not believe what I had done to Elizabeth. The bedding was a mass of blood. Elizabeth’s body lay across it, her head was twisted at an unnatural angle. There was a gaping, gory hole in her chest. I heard a maniacal laugh come in through the window. I threw myself onto her crying my eyes out. I could not stop. I truely did not want this to happen to my love.
Then there were hands on my shoulders, pulling me away from Elizabeth’s corpse. In fits and starts I heard voices. Some of the other guests, woken by my screams, assummed I was Elizabeth’s killer and wanted to hang me. I told them to hang me and I also told them it was me who killed her. I heard a gruff voice saying that it was enough of of that talk. It spoke again and told me it wasn’t me who escaped through the window and took her heart. I told the people ( I didn’t know who were also around me) that I knew who the murderer was. I also told them that I had seen the face of the one who killed her. I told them that I would follow this vile criminal to the ends of the earth, and then have my vengance. I told them that there was someone who swore that they would wreck my wedding night. I wanted to leave but I was told I couldn’t leave because someone had already sent for the police so they’d want to speak to me. I wanted to beg my love for forgiveness so they left me with her as I commanded.
Then the police arrived after a short amount of time. For most of the rest of the night I was interviewed by the police, but at last the inspector declared himself satisfied that I was innocent. The last thing that I said – before sleep enfulged me -was that I would follow Elizabeth’s murderer to the ends of the earth.
I hope I do catch this vile criminal and then I WILL have my vengance.
That is all for now and possibly forever,
