Love Letter

The love letter fell from her fingers onto an open newspaper. She bent forward in her chair and heaved a deep, broken sob, her entire world shrinking into this one, singular moment. Ink wet with tears, the signature on the letter ran together with the author’s printed name on the newsprint beneath, among the obituaries.

FFF-55 Vol. XXXIX? Tell a story in exactly 55 words. Go see G-Man. Inspired by, and loosely dedicated to, Kevin, whomever he may be. "Now there's no love as true as the love that dies untold." --Robbie Robertson/Rick Danko/The Band, It Makes No Difference. 


  1. One wonders where the story goes from there... or how it got there in the first place. An intriguing 55!

  2. the obituary touch at the end as it makes the letter all the more ominous....very cool...

  3. Linc...

    I'm back regular now so remember...Thursday 8:00 PM.
    Loved your 55 My Friend
    Thanks for playing, and have a Kick Ass Week-End

  4. Just excellent! This is actually about the length of a sappy romance that my husband can read. Ha ha. I loved it and, being a woman, would enjoy a whole movie of this :)

  5. An intriguing fiction...the 55 words was not enough ~

    Happy day ~
