Rust wants to tell his former fiancee he is still alive with a letter. Since he cannot leave his post, take it to Raina in Skylight.
After having time to think, Rust has decided to give Raina a letter telling her he is alive, he is happy for her, and he forgives her. Since he cannot leave his post, he needs it delivered to her in Skylight.
After you delivered the letter, Raina and Rust were reunited briefly before they went their separate ways to their new lives—Raina to her husband in Skylight and Rust to focus on Deepwood Holt. If her child is a boy, Raina plans to name him after Rust.

Wayfinder... I shouldn't have lost my temper. The Reavers attacked while you were away and I lost one of my Watchers. It's... It's been a bad day.
I won't lie and say 'I'm fine.' The news hit me hard. Every now and then a spell hits me and it's as if I have trouble breathing.
When the Fall happened... I was at the Crossroads. We were terrified, but we could see the light of the Beacon. And Omen, Wolf, the Seekers... they gave us hope.
Raina and others in the Holt—they were plunged into darkness. And I've seen the Reavers. She must have thought I was dead. I... don't care how she got through that. Just that she did.
I wrote her a letter explaining everything—where I've been, how I looked for her, how my memories of her kept me from despair. I don't know if it will help, but I had to tell the truth.
Would you like me to take it to Raina?
Please. I wish I could deliver it myself, but even if I could leave my post... I don't know if she'd want to see me. Thank you, Wayfinder. Arcs be with you.
Oh, hello again! Coming to check in on me again so soon?
I have a letter... From Warden Rust.
Who's Warden Rust? Rust... Russ? My Russ? If this is some sort of joke, it's not funny.
Is this your bracelet?
Architects have mercy... Give me the letter!
Russ... Oh, Russ. I should have known, somehow. But how... how could I have? The darkness. The howls. The Reavers. We thought we were all that was left in the world.
Is there anything I can--
Go away! Just—go away and leave me alone!
Wayfinder. Did you deliver my letter? How was Raina?
She... took it hard.
Raina? Raina, what are you doing here? You know how dangerous this place is! And in your condition...
I had to see for myself. Oh, Russ... I always hoped you were alive. I left my bracelet and a note when we had to flee the house. But the others told me it was impossible, that you were surely dead.
I... I know. This last year has been hard for me, but I can't imagine what you've been through.
We thought... we thought the world was ending. We thought each night might be our last. And when people started turning on one another—Wilhelm and I kept each other safe.
Wilhelm? You married Wilhelm?
I'm so sorry, Russ. We both... we both missed you. We thought it was what you'd want. If our child is a boy... We wanted to name him Russ.
I... I don't know what to say. Every day I looked at the Gloom and swore I'd find a way through it. Swore I'd find you again. And yet...
We never meant to hurt you, Russ. Wilhelm and I... We saved each other's lives. So many times. If you'd been there...
But I wasn't. And you're alive. You're both alive. And despite the darkness... you're bringing new life into the world. How could I ask for anything more?
It's all right, Raina. I'll be all right. And I'll be there for you and for Wilhelm. And for your child. But we need to get you back to Skylight. It's not safe here, and I can't lose you again.
I love you, Russ. I always will.
Thank you, Wayfinder. This isn't how I wanted the story to end. But it's better than finding a grave.
What will you do now?
Cry a lot, oversharpen my sword, maybe kill about a dozen Reavers. And then... I'll find a path forward. Find a new light in the darkness.
