Writing 101 Prompt- Day 5:

You stumble upon a random letter on the path. You read it. It affects you deeply, and you wish it could be returned to the person to which it’s addressed. Write a story about this encounter.

Today’s twist: Approach this post in as few words as possible.

~~~~~~~~~~~~

My dear Naina,

This is the last letter I will be writing. I know you probably haven’t opened the 14 others that I sent over the last 4 months. I know that you may never look at me again. It is impossible for me to expect forgiveness. All I ask is that, should you chance upon this note, just know that I always loved you.

There never was another woman.

You ought to know why I said it, I suppose. I couldn’t bear the thought of you watching me sink away. Remember me as I was- strong, thriving and holding you in my arms. Let the cancer take only me away and not the memory of us together.

Loving you till I die,

Rishabh

I read the letter again, with anguish and  helpless rage. How I wished I could find Naina and give her this epistle. My tears hit the ground beneath me and merged with the raindrops that fell from above. Even the skies were sobbing at my predicament.

    1. That was so wonderful of you, Pang <3 Thank you so much. I just accepted a Liebster award last week. I will edit it to accept this one from you as well.Would you mind if I just answer the questions in a comment on your blog? Let me know.

  1. A sad, tragic tale of love forever. You express so well the emotion of helplessness one would feel at finding such a moving letter. A lot said in a few words, something at which you have become such a master!
