Day 5: I Found A Letter.


On my way from church last sunny Sunday afternoon, I found an old brown oxford envelope on the floor with a letter almost completely out of it. In my curiosity and love for handwritten letters, I picked it.

On the back of the enveloped was written, “Since I cann’t say it, I wrote it”. The letter made me cry on my way to my apartment and the tears wouldn’t stop coming. Whoever Simbi is, needs to read these words of encouragement, even my pastor has never given me this much hope on any  Sunday morning. Simbi must get this letter regardless of the divorce, cancer and loss of her only child she’s battling.

PS: It’s Day 5 of my Writing101. 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.

Hope you are all doing great! Dear Nigerians, make your votes count once again.
