I’m running away from home.
You can’t just take away my teddy bear cause I broke the TV. It isn’t fair. I didn’t mean to. I found where you hid Baby Teddy and I rescued him. We’ll be together forever.
I made us a bag of brown sugar sandwiches and took my fuzzy pink sweater. Don’t look for us. Especially at Grandma’s house. That’s not where we’re going.
From Writing 101 – Today’s Prompt: You stumble upon a random letter on the path. You read it. It affects you deeply, and you wish it could be returned to the person to which it’s addressed. Write a story about this encounter. Today’s twist: Approach this post in as few words as possible. My twist: I find a letter recently when helping my Mom move. I wrote it as a little girl, the only time I ran away…..to my Grandma’s house, across the street. I had no idea she’d kept it.

It shows how much our parents love us… she still keeps the letter! That is very sweet of your parents in my opinion.
Thank you for your comment and for stopping by. And you are right, my sister and I were fortunate to be very loved.
When I saw your comment in The Commons, I was drawn to read your post because I also used a childhood story.
Yours is absolutely beautiful, showing a level of pure innocence and sincerity that only a child can show.
Thank you so much of sharing it with us. I love it, and I mean it.
Thank you so much for such sincerely kind comments. It means a great deal to me that you enjoyed it.
REally cute. Thanks for sharing.
Thank you! And yes – I was giving away where I was headed; Grandma’s house was across the street.
Did I guess right, you were telling her exactly where you can be found? Ha Ha Ha it’s funny!
Yes! Love this post. And I’m going to make myself a brown sugar sandwich too. I loved them in school lunches.
Oh that is so sweet :,(
