Writing 101 Day 5

[You stumble upon a random letter on the path. You read it. It affects ywriting-101-june-2014-class-badge-1ou 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.]
Impressed on the letter, my sole, adding to the wear and tear. Impressed on my soul, words of regret, opportunity lost, desire and love eternal. Tears falling, staining the paper already creased and refolded, ink fading. The envelope, a step away, but unreadable, faded beyond hope, yet stamped, never to be mailed. Looking around, only one person. Turning at my touch on their shoulder, they see the letter first, then meet my eyes. Recognition, through the years, four eyes bright as matching tears fall. They say, “At last, now you know.”
