"Dear Rick, I don’t know how much time I have, even to write this letter. What I do know now, is that I’m in this and the only way I’m gonna make it out alive is to see this through. I’m sure everyone is looking for me, and if they figure out I was here CSU is gonna search this house. They’re gonna look for blood, and they will find it. Which will lead them to this letter. Babe, it’s your letter and I hope you never have to read this and I can tell you all of these things in person. But if something happens and I don’t make it. I need you to know that our partnership, our relationship is the greatest thing that has ever happened to me. You’re an amazing man, and I love you with all of my heart. Always."

#the fact that she made it a point to not leave out their partnership#because she started out despising him#wishing he’d somehow go away#that nikki heat didn’t exist#but then his once annoying traits because cute quirks that she’d secretly smile at#and he became this person that she could rely on#castle you’re the only backup i have#and he paid thousands of dollars to get the man that murdered her mother#and he never let her do anything alone PARTNERS THEN. and it all falls back to that trust they built on in the beginning#that partnership that just never stopped growing#that led them to this moment where she’s telling him what they have#that what they’ve built#is the most important thing in her life (x)
