LETTER ONE

Dearest Sophie,

I trust that my payment has already been spent wisely. Did you buy those delicious pancakes you so craved? Thinking about the numerous phone calls we made to those takeaways to ask if they had any still makes me laugh.

I have asked a good friend of mine to give to a good friend of yours an envelope containing a tip, if you are willing to accept. I would give it to you myself but I have pressing matters to attend to.

Saying that, I do wish to meet you again soon. You plague my thoughts and seeing you again would give me great pleasure.

Forever yours,

Billie.

LETTER TWO

My Sophie,

My good friend has told me she was able to make sure you would get my gift. I must admit, I would have hoped to see you soon after you received it, nevertheless, I hope it benefits you well.

It has been such a long time since our first encounter or, at least, it feels that way. I crave you and every second away from you feels like an eternity. I remember that it is your birthday in five days and so you can be expecting another gift from me shortly.

Thinking of you,

Billie.

LETTER THREE

My darling Sophie,

Such great news! My brother has been graced with a beautiful baby girl! I suggested the name Sophie to him, which he immediately adored, much like myself. Are you pleased, my love?

Yours,

Billie.

LETTER FOUR

Dearest Sophie,

I am unsure whether to accept these stories I have so often been told by your friends. You're either working or away with friends - nevertheless, you are never at your post. It is strange because I know for a fact you wait there every night at precisely ten O' clock (three minutes past on a Thursday) and yet you are never there any more. My gifts aren't that generous. Have I said something wrong?

Please come back to me, if only one more time.

Your biggest fan,

Billie.

LETTER FIVE

Sophie, my love,

I am sorry that is has been so long since I last wrote. You must be quite glad! I saw you at your corner last week but as I was about to greet you, you unexpectedly walking away and I lost you as you wandered off into the night. Please do not put me through this again. I am willing to pay you three times as much on our next encounter.

Yours eternally,

Billie.

LETTER SIX

Sophie,

I cannot shake the feeling that you are avoiding me. Please meet me at your post tonight at 12.05am to discuss this further.

Your completely,

Even in death,

Billie.

LETTER SEVEN

My Sophie,

Why were you not at your post tonight? Never in your career have you had a customer at twelve for three hours. I waited a long time for you and you never came. I will see you tonight, same place, same time.

Yours,

Billie.

LETTER EIGHT

Sophie,

I am not an idiot. You are avoiding me. I gave you more than enough payment and you do not even give me the courtesy to see me. I want you - I will have you. That you can be sure of.

Billie.

LETTER NINE

Sophie,

Do you seriously think that you can escape from me that easily? You stupid girl, I follow you. I know where you live. I will make you mine.

Billie.

LETTER TEN

My dearest Sophie,

Submit to me, give yourself up to me and love me or I will burn that pathetic excuse for a flat down to the ground with you locked inside.

Forever yours,

Forever thinking of you,

Your Billie.

LETTER ELEVEN

Sophie,

You think you've managed to escape? Do you seriously think the police will help you of all people? To them, you are nothing and to me, you are nothing. You are just my toy and I will find you and I will make you sorry for hurting me. I will make you regret the disgusting things you have done to my heart. I remember your child-like face.

Wait for me, my darling.

Billie xxx
