Day Five: The Wandering Letter in the Wind

The  autumn wind blew the tattered piece of paper  my way as I strolled leisurely through the path in the park. I caught a glimpse of it and saw its content was handwritten. It aroused curiosity in me and I took off after it till I caught up with it in the wind.

Breathing heavily from the short burst run, I perched my behind on a nearby stump to read the details of the wandering letter. I read it several times over till I almost memorized every line.

A crystal ball couldn’t have shined any brighter than his heart did through his words to her in this letter. My heart melted reading the pure expressions of his unmasked emotions. He wasn’t afraid to lay it bare but sadly I’d never know if she held it dear.
