And that was one hell of a legacy. Still, despite the echoes of the warmth and love that had once filled these rooms, I had no intention of keeping the house. Not when all I had to do was step into the kitchen to be reminded of everything that had happened.
I walked along the hallway, my boots echoing on the polished marble floor. I drew in a shuddery breath, then slowly climbed the carpeted stairs. The air had a disused smell. I walked across the thick carpet and opened the double doors to her wardrobe. Her clothes had already been donated to charity, but somehow seeing this emptiness hit me in a way that the emptiness of the other rooms had not.
I swiped at the tear that appeared on my cheek and resolutely walked into the bathroom. I opened the double doors under the basin and ducked down. After typing in the code, I pressed my hand against the reader.

Red light flickered across my fingertips; then there was a soft click as the safe opened. I took a deep breath, then sat and pulled the door all the way open.

Her death still hurt—would always hurt—but a tiny weight seemed to have lifted from my soul. I glanced down at the letter in my hand, smiling slightly as her scent spun around me, then folded it up again and tucked it into my pocket.
