Dear Zeig,

I'm writing to let you know that Bear is safely with me now. Please let Melinde know so she doesn't worry any longer. He's lost some weight and he's surely hurting, but he's being very brave. The very first thing that he did was eat, and he's been stuck to my side ever since. He even slept in my room last night, starting on the floor then creeping up into the bed because he said he was afraid that I might get taken. That broke my heart. If there are any more of his things at First Home, please let me know and I'll arrange to have them brought here. As soon as I can, I'll bring him back to visit everyone. He really needs family around him.

Bear hasn't wanted to say anything about what happened. I don't blame him. When he's ready, I figure that he will. Last night we talked about how awful corn dogs were and the glory of crayons. I don't suppose that you've ever had a corn dog either. I'm not going to explain what they are. It's a bit off putting. There's not much corn and nothing dog about it, just.. stuff that we'd feed to the dogs typically. You did have crayons though once, didn't you? I thought I remembered your grandfather sneaking you toys.

Anyhow, rest easy. Bear is here. All is well and no one is shooting at me again. I'll tell you about the craziness that is this new ship once I've got my head around it all. I'm still trying to figure all of it out just yet. Stay safe. I miss Maya's cooking, but I miss you more.

Love, Soren
