Writing 101, Day Five : Be Brief

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.


Final gulp of beloved triple-shot latte. A yellowish letter caught the eyes.

Brain warned to remain where it resides. Conscience warned to remain where it belongs.

Curiosity couldn’t resist. Implication now persists.

Afternoon passed. Dark embraces.

None recall such heartfelt words were emanated.

Cold resides as shadows vanish.

Renounces in blues as it dwells in a moonless light.
