55 fiction #007: Love Letter

#007: Love Letter

Dear Ankita,
How are you?
I have something to tell you.
I wrote to your parents about us.
They have accepted my marriage proposal.
They are probably already fixing the date of our marriage.
I can’t wait to see you.
Love,
Ajay.

The letter arrived today… but… Ajay had been reported KIA a week ago…

Hmm... this ons was a bit on the tragic side... but I feel that the 55 format didnt do full justice to it... I am definitely gonna rewrite this one into a bigger piece... I can imagine a village like setting... where a pretty girl is dressed in white... in mourning... and a postman on a creaky old bike rides up to deliver this letter...
