FF: That letter

PC: Sandra Crook
Lana stood in front of this building and thought to herself “In a week, this place would have been laden with white and pink flowers. All the loved ones would smile for a picture here.”

Lana almost saw an image of herself in her lilac wedding gown and Stuart looking dapper in his tuxedo.

Then she looked at the letter in her hand and the building in front started to blur in her tears and her tears turned into heart-breaking sobs as she crushed the letter


The letter said just one line “Stuart died in a car crash this morning”

  6. Wow. There were a number of elements in your story similar to my own, but the outcome is radically different.

  9. Complete story well told. A funeral instead of a wedding.

    One thought: I've been listening to a writing tutor who says you don't need to think "to yourself" because who else would you think to.

    1. Talking to yourself is sometimes really important, you do need expert advise sometime right :D
