Day Five: Be Brief

Today’s Prompt: 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

I’m out walking.

Music blasting in my ears, arms swinging, pumping, my stride long, strong.

Something catches my eye.

I stop.

A letter?

Do I pick it up?

I am too nosey to not.

I pick it up.

The envelopes’ been open, a sheet of stationary sticking out.

My dearest darling, it begins.

I forget that I’m walking.

I’m caught up, transported to the moment in time when this letter was written.

A tear falls from my eye.

A beautiful letter of love.

Why is it here?

I want to return it.

The address is too smudged.

I put the letter in my pocket and continue my walk.
