Yours Sincerely,


It had been years since we last parted, that’s how it felt like to me. Even though it was only two years ago... our middle school days, our high school days, are over. We only have the memories and the signed year books to cherish and look back on.

“Have an AWESOME summer break!”

“I’ll miss you so much over break!”

“Can’t wait to see you again and have funner times next year!”

There were many more I would like to read, but the ones I would look back on always hurt a little. They were from my best friends... our little group of 5. It wasn’t fair at all. While everyone went onto college in the same state, I had to go out of state.

We promised the day of we would always keep in touch by calling each other, writing, texting, but lately, life is getting in the way. I guess it’s just as the saying goes, “Live your present, not your past.”

But could they all really forget about me? Just like that? After years and years of school together... no... I’m sure they were just busy with college is all. We still hang onto our memories dearly, -I would like to believe. I still tried to stay in touch, every day, any time I was free.

But, nothing. No received calls. No text messages. In the mornings, I would wander across the street in my pajama’s just to examine an empty mailbox. I would then walk back into my house and write them letters. All four of my friends.

Within every letter there was a part of the past, a fond memory. But they would always go un-answered.

I stared outside of my window in the kitchen, the sink sparkled after I meticulously cleaned it after having nothing else to do, the faucet dripped water and it was being the only sound that kept me company. Birds later joined chirping outside my window.

The kitchen utensils were stacked in their respectable area, the potted plants sitting on the window sill needed to be watered this afternoon. The sun shown in for a moment, blinding my eyesight. It was such a beautiful day outside.

I looked down at my four letters and sighed. Each of the letters ended the same exact way.


Yours Sincerely,

A Forgotten Friend

Fated Encounter At The Mall


Today, I had planned to go to the Mall with my boyfriend. It was Sunday Morning. We had been dating for almost 5 months now, he's the kindest guy I've met. So far.

I met him at a party in campus. I was glad my friend pushed me to go, I wasn't planning on it. Because I knew there would be drinking, of course. Teenagers in college = drinking. But when I first layed my eyes on him he wasn't doing anything bad in particular, and neither was I. We just connected since.

I woke up early, that was a first. Made some breakfast, turned on the weather channel and while at the same time, I called him. When I heard the dial tone, and his voice, I smiled. “Good morning, Danny.”

His voice sounded sleepy through the other end of the phone, I hope I didn't wake him, but he said in almost a cheery voice; “Morning, Katie. Ready?”

Of course I was, we ended our phone conversation shortly after and I rushed out the door. We met halfway and walked together hand in hand to the Mall.

At the mall, I couldn't help the memories passing through.

Back at the Mall at my old town, with all our friends, we used to go all the time after school was dismissed. We would make sure to bring money, but we didn't waste all of our lunch money, we bought simple things like bouncy balls and candy from the quarter machines. It was truly an ideal life for friends.

By boyfriend, Danny, squeezed my hand tighter and pulled me out of my memories. I looked up at him and he looked concerned, my smile reassured everything though.

Or so, I thought it had. “Tell me what's wrong, Katie,” He looked me straight in the eye, he gazed at my deep brown eyes, and he was one of those perfect gentlemen that knew the phrase when a girl said, "nothing is wrong" meant something was. I loved him for that.

“I'm just... thinking about some stuff... friends I miss....” I still smiled, but there was definitely something sad in it. And he noticed.

He pulled me closer into his loving embrace and stroked my hair, “Katie, I'm here for you. Know that if there is anything you need to talk about.... I'm here for you. I am.” His voice was just like a melody, and I wanted to rest my worries, and my past, on him.

But it was just 30 minutes later, where I encountered one of my friends from way back then.


The Playground Picture


I dropped my bags on the floor. Danny was currently in the bathroom and told me to wait for him. I could not.
I ran after the face that haunted me for years, though it was only a glimpse of his face, but I was so sure!

When I was at close distance from behind him, I touched his shoulder and he spun around to face me.

Glare.

“What?”

“Jake... Jake, is it really you...!?” I was on the borderline to tears. Had my prayers, text messages, calling, letters, finally been answered?

“I'm not. Jake.” He hesitated, why? Was it only a hallucination? Was I going crazy?

“But.... you look... so much like him...”

I remembered the soft black eyes I would gaze into, the spiky black hair I could see in a crowd of million.

He turned away, and began walking. I wanted to stop him, so much. I wanted evidence that I wasn't going crazy!

“WAIT!” Was the only thing I could think to say, and then it came to me. Our memories. Our special bond. “Don't you.... remember? All those times playing on the See-Saw with everyone? The monkey bars? You pushing me on the swings, and how much we were both so blissfully happy? We were just kids, but...”

I had to remember, Danny. He is my boyfriend now.

Jake stopped when I looked back up at him from the floor, then he started walking away again.

I counted the steps he took, wondering if that was the last I would see of him.

And then my eyes found something. I squinted, and saw a picture fall from his jacket. When he was long gone, I picked it up and put it in the light.

“.....Jake.....don't lie to me...” I looked at the picture that seemed to have been folded a few times, of us. Not only me and Jake, all of our friends. Happy and smiling at the playground.


And Every Night Since. . .


When Danny came out of the bathroom, he rushed to see my crying near the fountain in the middle of the mall. People passed by and gave us looks of indifference's, I didn't care.

The mall cop watched us suspiciously though, eating a doughnut.

My beloved boyfriend asked me what was wrong, and I couldn't keep it from him. I could never keep anything from him.

So I told him.

“I saw one of my friends. . . he didn't. . . remember me. . .”

He didn't say anything in exchange but just held me tight, it felt like a really long time, just us, sitting on the fountain and hugging. From behind us, the flowing of the fountains water soothed me though, and I got a little wet at the back.

After our tearful Mall affair, he walked me home with his body close to mine.

I live alone, my parents you see- they were rich. In their will, they had about thousands and thousands of dollars for me. And able as I was, I bought a nice white picket fence house. My boyfriend lives the dorm life, but I on the other hand live on my own, seeing as how my parents wanted that. It was said so, in their will after they died.

But one day Danny said to me with a smile on his face, “One day, in our future. I'm going to marry you Katie Anne. And we'll live the American dream, with the white picket fence and everything.” It was kind of funny though, I already had the white picket fence.

But I held him to that promise that one day, we'll marry.

Danny offered to spend the night with me, but I declined knowing he didn't need to babysit me and needed to study for upcoming exams.

I promised him I'll be alright, and he took the long walk back to campus. It wasn't that long, maybe 15 or 20 minutes if you power walked.

We liked walking better than driving. Walking meant the feel of the sun on your skin, passing by strangers you don't even know but offering them smiles, and what I liked most of all was Danny's hand in mine. And every time I walked down the sidewalk, I could imagine him walking by my side, our hands in lock and the feel of him squeezing mine.

When it was nightfall, I remembered to hide the picture from Danny in my pocket, I turned on the small lamp in my room and lie my head against the pillow, bringing the picture to my face and crying my aching heart out that night.


Dear Katie,


I knew if I went to school today, I would be a wreck.

But I really tried, I really really tried to keep my promise to Danny.

Although, it was hard. Especially this morning.

I walked across the street knowing FULLY well, there was nothing in my mailbox. I knew better than to hope.

But I opened it anyway, and to my shocked surprise, I gasped, eyes locked on a letter. With a shaking hand I began to reach for it, looking past the mailbox to my neighbor, maybe it had only been his? Just, mis-placed into the wrong mailbox.

Maybe. . .

Maybe not.

I grasped it and put it to my chest, running back into my house to read it in my own home.

It looked like just any ordinary envelope, no special seal or stamp or anything.

I fought with myself if I should read it or not. Would it change my life? For the better? Worse? I wonder...

It was indeed, addressed to me. ME.

But the person who sent it was referred as, "Anonymous"

I opened it slowly, emotions running wild and the past with my friends rewinding for some reason.


Dear Katie,

I'm sorry. There's nothing else I could think of saying to you right now... I know what your thinking, your probably thinking who sent you this letter? Well, let's just say its a really close personal friend of yours. A lots happened Katie... and I mean a lot. I know we haven't done any communicating in the past two yeas, but I'd like you to know there is a good reason for it. There is. I just know if you found out, things won't work out well... I write this in my dorm room, thinking of all the times we shared, the simple things we used to talk about all the time, our childish dreams of getting our own cat or dog, you, actually making it all the way to the monkey bars. Just the simplest things remind me of you. I gotta be honest, I fell in love with you the moment you walked into Mrs, Kellers' class the first day of kindergarten, you remember that day, right?

When I look outside of my window now, I see a campus full of teenagers with their best friends, together forever I would like to think. I don't see you, and that's just part of the reason why I cannot tell you who I am. Just know this: I never stopped thinking about you, even after your leaving. It's hard not to reveal who I am... So Katie, I'll leave you with this.

Did you enjoy the picture?

-- Just Someone Who Never Stopped Thinking Of You



A Dream That Felt So Real


I felt like such a fool when I woke up in my bed, alarm ringing at 6 in the morning. School...

I almost couldn't muster enough energy to even get up from bed.

I remembered the dream perfectly, I remembered all my dreams of my friends writing back to me perfectly.

But that's just it... Dream.

That's all it was.

But I couldn't stop thinking about it. I repeated the words over and over again in my head, Dear, Katie...

And especially, Did you enjoy the picture?

Jake. In my dream, he sent the letter, didn't he?

I have the picture, but not the letter. It makes no sense. I wondered if I went outside right now, checked my mailbox if I would find a letter inside.

Once I did, it was just as I thought.

But really, the dream felt so real!
