Writing 101:Day Five: Random Letter (be brief)

fountain-pen-447575_1280You’ve just left on your trip thinking the worst and praying for the best.

I wish I could let you know about the letter that just came for you.  

I opened it hoping for the best.  Our prayers are answered.  Your son is fine and will make a full recovery.

This will be confirmed for you shortly when you arrive.  I wish you could read this letter now but I know you will be informed of the good news as soon as you see your son’s family.

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.
