I am an impoverished young woman whose parents are lowly criminals. My life is miserable, but there has always been on ray of light, a gentleman, a good friend of mine named Marius. Marius comes from a wealthy family, but he has left that all aside to work to pursue revolutionary politics. He is handsome, intelligent, and so kind. But he never looks at me but as a friend. Now another girl has caught his fancy. She has a rich guardian who provides everything for her. She is beautiful, and sweet, and has everything to offer which I do not.
I saw her leave a letter intended for him on her front gate. I took the letter and saw it said she will soon be leaving Paris. I have kept it to myself. Should I deliver it to Marius?
I love him, but every day I'm learning that all my life I've only been pretending. Without me, his world will go on turning - a world that's full of happiness that I have never known. I love him, but only on my own.
