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,
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.
