Writing 101 Task Five: “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 the encounter,” using as little words as possible.

FullSizeRenderI know where this street is! I thought, my fingers tracing the smudged address in the corner of the envelope, damp with rainwater and mud.

“Will she forgive me for prowling?” I whispered, gently refolding the soiled letter riddled with the fervent contents of a dying man’s heart.

I overstepped the puddle before me that I had plucked the abandoned letter from and made haste.

No matter! This true love cannot wait!
