Oooh! Dani Jace has a great topic this week!
Love Letters: Have you received any or written any? Has any of your characters written or received any? Share if you dare or make up one to a special someone.
In this world of text messages and emails, I’m not sure if love letters are even a “thing” anymore. But if they aren’t, the younger generation is missing out on something very romantic.
I have written and received a few love letters in my life. I went away to school for a couple of years, and while there met someone. He got a job in a different part of the province and I went home when my school year was done, and for a few months we exchanged letters. That was also the summer I wrote my only “Dear John” letter (although in this case, it was “Dear Bill”).
The most mysterious letter I ever received happened this way:
My future husband and I had just started dating, and one day at work a bouquet of roses and a letter were delivered to me. The letter said (among other things that I can no longer remember) that he would be waiting for me at our special place at a certain date and time. The thing was, Mr. C denied sending the letter or the flowers, and continues to deny it to this day. Since I had no idea who else it could have been, I didn’t know where I was supposed to meet him, so the date and time passed and I never heard from him again.
I have a couple thoughts about this. One, that if it was Mr. C that sent it, he may have denied it when I admitted I didn’t know where our special place was (my bad). And, two, that even if I had known who had sent it and knew where to meet him, I wouldn’t have gone, because I knew Mr. C was the one already.
