Writing 101 – Day 5 – Prompt
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.
A letter on the road. Still slightly damp from the early morning rain. I see the name. I can’t read it. It’s not addressed to me.
So, I open it. A bank statement. A short history of where she was last week: the petrol station, the supermarket, the pharmacy, the Warehouse, an ATM in Raglan.
I put the letter in my bag for later. I want to, but I cannot return it. We are already late for the funeral.
