Arctic Heat 6

Northern Days

I have to tell him.

Keeping secrets from the people closest to me isn’t easy. The guilt is eating me up especially when it comes to Varg, who has no clue what’s going on. He knows something’s up—or not up, as is his theory—but he has no idea what it really is.

I have to come clean. I can’t keep it to myself anymore. I can’t keep hurting him for much longer. Who knows what kind of stories he makes up in his head.

One thing’s for sure, I know it’s not the truth. I know he can’t possibly imagine that it’s cancer. But whatever he imagines… it could be even worse. And if there’s one thing I don’t want, it’s to lose Varg.

So I have to tell him the truth and hope he forgives me for keeping it from him for so long.
