Drabble Day – Letter


I stumbled upon an old paragraph I wrote up for I-can’t-remember-what. I decided to rework it into a drabble. 😉

Remember how it works?

  • Read the prompt and find your angle.
  • Write a drabble (100 words story, give or take five words).
  • Post a direct link to your drabble in the comments (or, if you don’t have a blog, just go ahead and post your drabble in the comments).
  • In the post on your blog, make sure to link back to this post.

Today’s prompt is: Letter!

My drabble:

The envelope had no address but my own, written in snaky letters.  It contained a single sheet of paper where the curves read: “You shouldn’t have touched me…”
I felt the poison coursing through my veins as the story of my life smashed reality to smithereens.  My casual oh-so-boring thirtyish years opened for scrutiny and each memory taunted me: “Herein lies the whos and whys that eluded you.”
Could I figure out my murder before my conscience sank six feet under? Why would I not try? I probably couldn’t stop death but curiosity was way behind to kill this cat.

Awesome writerly week to all of you!
