The letter is addressed to Edward Cullen, the vampire lead of Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight series.

The Letter

Dear Edward,

When I looked at you the first time, I saw those deep, penetrating, piercing eyes that would change the color to depict your mood and unknowingly, unintentionally they effect me too. When they turn blue I know you are calm and a sense of security surrounds me. When they turn red – they paint me scarlet because I know that is when you want me. The eyes turn black, as they try to penetrate mine to know my deepest secret- reflecting my eyecolor and they camouflage to protect their own secret. When they are hazel- the sunflower eyes as I call them, you are your real self and those sunflower eyes become my sun and I become the sunflower of those sunflower eyes, and I can not resist turning towards you.
When you are around I stand awestruck, speechless. No matter how I much try I can not bring myself to utter those words which I so easily whisper to you in my dreams. So today, I’m penning my feelings down. I want you to know, that I am truly and irrevocably in love with you. You are my love, You are my dream. So Let me dream my love, let me love my dream.
Exclusively yours

End of the Letter

About the character: Edward Cullen (né Edward Anthony Masen) is a fictional character in Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight series. He is featured in the books Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse and Breaking Dawn, as well as the Twilight film, and the as yet unfinished novel Midnight Sun – a re-telling of the events of Twilight from Edward’s perspective. Edward is a vampire who, over the course of the series, falls in love with, marries, and has a child with Bella Swan, a human teenager who later chooses to become a vampire also. In the Twilight film series, Edward is played by actor Robert Pattinson.

Edward, like all vampires in the Twilight series, possesses superhuman strength, speed, endurance, and agility, and is described as being inhumanly beautiful. His scent and voice are enormously seductive to Bella, so much so that he occasionally sends her into a pliant daze entirely by accident. In Twilight, Edward explains that like other vampires, he does not need to breathe, though he chooses to do so out of habit and because it is helpful to smell his environment. He cannot digest regular food, and compares its attractiveness for him to the prospect of eating dirt for a regular person. As well, like other vampires, Edward is not able to sleep.

In addition to the traits he shares with his fellow vampires, Edward has certain abilities that are his alone. He is the fastest of the Cullens, able to outrun any of them. Perhaps as a result of a talent for empathy in his human life, Edward can also read the mind of anyone within a few miles of himself; Bella is the sole exception to this rule, which Meyer has stated is due to Bella having a very private mind.[7] Edward also retains some of the traditional mindset and dated patterns of speech from his early-20th century human life.

How do you like Priya’s vampire love? 🙂
