Unsent Letter to Shan Yun is a written note found in Death of the Outsider.
My dearest Shan,
I lie in bed and wait for you, the sheets soft on my skin like an echo of your touch. I'm reminiscing about the night we met. Remember, my love? Aranda sent you for an Eyeless tattoo. I knew your songs, of course, and recognized your handsome face from posters. But nothing prepared me for your dark gaze or the cruel, sensual curve of your lips. I was lost the moment our eyes met.
You seemed forceful, strong, so I was surprised when you trembled in my chair. Afraid of needles, you confessed. I swore then to make our night pleasurable, each sting of my needle a loving kiss...
I want to engrave those memories in our flesh. I've designed tattoos based on Gloriana, the beautiful song you wrote for me. Your music on our skin, my inks beneath it. Our passionate memories. Happy anniversary, my love.
