Dear friend,

I hope this gets to you before you reply my previous letter. I want to apologise for writing that. I was upset and I didn’t think things through. Of course, you had no choice when it came to the terrorist. It is your job to keep your city safe and as much as I wish you could tell me more about things, you told me more than most people will ever know. I appreciate that. 

I know the tone of my last letter might suggest that you don’t matter to me but it was anger speaking. I appreciate how open you’ve been with me. I’ve learned so much about the citadel thanks to you and these are things I would have never known if you weren’t there now. I am grateful. 

I can’t remember if I said you should never come home or you should never visit me but if I did say that, you know that isn’t true. The village is your home, no matter how high up you might be over there and you are always welcome back home. I’m always here waiting to see you. 

I am sorry for that last letter. I need to learn that talking or writing a letter when I am upset might not be the best approach. I will do better. 

I love you. 

Your friend. 

Israel Ekanem. 

I know you will leave
But I’m always here for you
Never forget that

Dear friend, 

I hope you are well. I am writing this to you not from the village but from miles away. I decided to take a trip to clear my head. I found out that this supposed informant was from our village. Did you think that was something I shouldn’t know? Do you think I am a spy or that I’m trying to bring down your sweet citadel? I’ve been thinking what your reason might be for keeping such information from me but I came up without any answer. So, tell me why? 

If you had told me he was from the village, do you think I would beg you to spare him? I know the citadel is your home now but I’m sure you know how proud the people of the village are. I wouldn’t beg for such. The man made a decision and he knew the consequences. Wait, is it guilt? Is it the guilt you feel when you hear him being tortured or the irritating smell of piss, blood, shit and tears? If you feel guilty that you have to torture a person that could be your brother or cousin or uncle, that is all on you. I’m sure you have ways of dealing with such in your citadel. 

I am going to stay here for a while but I hope to read your reply once I am home. I just want you to tell me why you would keep such from me; you owe me that.

Your friend. 

Israel Ekanem. 

I’m sure you know if
U were here, I’d be home now
But, damn it, you ain’t
