Bending down to pick up the precious letter, Melinda grabbed it and continued walking to a private spot to read it.
She had been holding onto this letter for it was too hard to read at first.
When word had come of Donovan’s death, she was devastated. This was his last letter, never again would his heart bleed on paper for her.
He put the magic in her life and without him it would never be the same.
Finding a secluded spot she sat down under a tree and began to read.
“To the One who Colors my Sky:
You always believed in me and I can’t express how much that meant to me. I knew I could count on you to be in my corner.
I have been saving for a long time and I can’t wait to show you the world. We have been separated for too long. The nights have seemed to go on forever without you and have been as dark as a sky without a moon.
I am coming my beloved. Once again the sun will rise when I look into your eyes.
If for some crazy reason I don’t make it to you I hope you get this letter. See the instructions attached to find where I hid the treasure.
Here is the key to the treasure. Use the gold wisely and you shall always have enough!
My heart may have been silenced but in my dreams it will forever beat for you.”
Melinda was tearing up again, hadn’t she cried enough? She turned over the letter to read the instructions but…. there was nothing there!
“Oh Donovan, what did you do? You forgot to write the instructions!!” She yelled in frustration, but had to smile. He always was a little absent minded. Somehow she would find the treasure, there had to be a way!
