if you are reading this, then I am dead. Somewhere in this house is a vampire. He is the one I've always been searching for. He was there when I became this creature, and tonight, I tried to kill him. If I had, I would have been able to stop but I wasn't doing this for me or the man I killed two months ago or even your parents. This was for you ..., my Tom.
This must be the final act. Tom, I want you to live a different life now - one that's decent. You see, we've lost everything that was harmless and mundane.
When I sat down to write this, I realised I'd forgotten how to hold a pen. It's so long since I did something so ordinary. I was selfish. I turned you into a weapon for my own war. The things I've asked you to do, they make me ashamed.
Let it end. I want you to be human now. Stop this chaotic, violent life. Make this the end of that story. I die tonight, but don't avenge me. It's getting dark. I have to go. Always know that I love you, Tom. I wish I really had been your father.
