Assignment #5 – Writing 101
My doctor’s appointment was in 10 minutes and I still had a few more blocks before I would reach his office. If I was late then I might lose my appointment and it would take a few months to get another one.
I was in a hurry, yes, but when I saw the bench I decided to rest for just a few moments before continuing my walk. I didn’t notice the letter until after sitting.
Mommy and I miss you so much. Please come back home.
I looked up to see the backside of the young man that had been sitting here. I ran to catch him, to give him back his letter, but he was gone.
Continuing my walk to my appointment, my mind was on a little boy named Benson that had captured my heart. I secretly hoped the letter had captured the heart of his daddy.
This post is in response to my class, Writing 101, assignment:
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.
