Her note word for word typed by user Kayla_la(thank you btw!):
Here is your money and here is your picture. I am sending both to you because even tho you are getting your money I dont want the art.
I told you I was sorry and I even appologized for it, but that apparently didn't matter to you but you know whatever. It really doesn't matter anymore.
Do what you want with the picture. Its your's anyway. It doesnt belong to me and it never did
