The Wall - #3

As I looked at the key, the design triggered a memory. Where had I seen this emblem before? Like visions rushing to fill in the blanks, a picture formed in my mind. I hurried to my room to write a letter to my cousin in England. It read, “Dear John, Do you still have the chest Grandfather kept in his room?”



Sharing this post as a continuing saga from Jenny's weekly prompt @ Saturday Centus.

This is really well written and captivating. I like that you didn't go with a typical use of the "Dear John" letter.
Cheers.

Thanks for a great post. You made such good use of so few words, telling a mysterious little tale and avoiding the obvious use of "Dear John" Great work.

Namaste..........cj

Intriguing... The prompt works well in the text. But I should read the other installments to better understand this work as a whole.

Best wishes,
Anna

Hey! HEY!!!!! Come back here! You can't leave us hanging like this! It is cruel. It is unusual. Now you just have to keep coming back to Saturday Centus to tell us what happens next.

This was great, suspenseful writing. I love the imagery this made in my mind.

Thanks for linking.
