T1 unlocks a door leading to a hidden garden. He locks the door from the inside as he enters. It is a small garden, not well kept, with a few trees. He approaches a magnolia tree, and sits cross-legged in front of it. T1: Hi. It’s been a while… I just wanted to update you on the latest news and also wanted to say goodbye because I will be gone for a while. I’ll still be in Tirana, but things will get too hectic, so I won’t be able to come here anymore. This morning, I filed the charges against mom and dad. There’s no turning back now. I am really scared. I don’t know what will become of me. And I can’t afford to be vulnerable, so I will allow myself a moment of weakness, share it with you, and then be done with it. When you were alive, I never had the chance to properly introduce myself to you. And the time we’ve spent together has been rather traumatic, for the both of us. Understandably, you wouldn’t wanted to be reminded of that experience, but nonetheless I need to share it because I never got the chance to explain myself and let you see my side of the story. You’ve seen me come here from time to time, water your plants, ramble about my day, but today I’ve gathered all my courage, and we’ll have a good talk, a meaningful one.
