Really Really Really Sorry

I wonder if Paul ever sent this letter to Sarah. Did he change his mind and stuff the letter inside a book? Maybe Sarah got it and put it in the book. I’d like to think there was a happy-ever-after to this story but more likely these two drifted apart after this incident. Who knows?

1000000000 Kisses

When I was walking to work, I cut through the park. The letter was a little wet.
