Unnamed letter


, , , ,

Opening the door to her office she sees only her desk light is on, under it sits a letter. She walks to her desk and picks up the letter, as she goes to open it her hand freezes. There is no return address, no sender name and the date stamp is too worn out to read. The letter is old and it has an address on it she has never seen, but it has her full name even her middle initial.
She looks, wondering who could have put it there. Was it a prank, but why would someone do that and who would, no it must be serious, but how did it get to her all the way in her office. She keeps thinking about all the people in her life that know her full name. It’s a very short list of which she couldn’t see any of them sending her a Letter Like this, confusion fills her mind as she ponders whether or not to open the letter. Finally, she makes up her mind holds the letter in hand and slides the letter opener through the top tearing it open.
Her Mind races, as she turns the envelope over and a single sheet of paper falls from it, she picks it up and looks at the blank back then turns it over to see a picture. It’s a small girl no more than three years old, sitting on the ground drawing with charka. She looks at the picture in confusion trying her best to figure out who the person in the picture is, then she notices what the girl is drawing it’s her name. It hits her suddenly. The girl in the picture is her, but who would send her a picture of herself.
Dismissing it instantly she goes to toss the picture in the trash and sees that a second piece of paper is stuck to the back of it. She peels it off and reads. “Remember when you were younger, how you enjoyed the little things, happy birthday Love dad.” Her eyes began to water as she walked back to the door, She hadn’t thought about or even did anything but work since her dad had to leave four years ago, she had even forgotten today was her birthday.
Walking out of her office, she decided to take three weeks off, she spoke out loud to herself. “I will enjoy the little things again dad thanks for the birthday gift.”
