DAY 5 – Writing 101 Exercise – 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 brief story about this encounter.
Here is my story in 100 words:
I saw them again today. Under the ferns, by the old bridge. I wasn’t going to tell you because I see the worry in your kind eyes. I recognize the lines that tighten around your mouth as you look down at your hands. Hands that once held mine, sweetly and confidently.
You shake your head slowly and sigh. Your eyes pierce mine, searching for answers. I want to shout; “I have seen the fairies! They danced with me in the sunshine!”
I hope you meet me by the bridge, tomorrow at 7 a.m. If you do not show, I understand.
