The Letter

                                            Episode Sixteen
The wedding between you and Steve was the talk of town. Everyone longed to witnessing the exquisite wedding ceremony. I couldn't imagine that you'd be getting married to Steve.

Steve won at last. He had you. I didn't. He laughed last. He was going to spend the rest of his life with you.

I sit at my usual place in the river bank, my legs dipped into the cold water. I write for the last time to you. I know that we will never be together again but I want you to forgive me. I never meant to hurt you Elsie. I want you to know that I love you so much and I always will.
                                                                                                              Yours sincerely,
*                                                                *                                                             *
Elsie cried thinking of the time she had spent with Andrew. Reading the letter made her realize how impossible it was to live without him. She love him, so much. She wanted to live the rest of her life with him, not Steve.

It's not too late. I love him. I deserve to be with who I love. She said crying.

"What are still doing inside? We been waiti... why are you crying?" Her mom entered with a group of women.

"I'm sorry mama. I can't do this".

"You can't do what?"

"I can't get married to Steve. I love Andrew. I'm sorry". She said, pulling away the bangles from her wrist and fleeing out of the room.

With flowing gown, Elsie ran through the streets, to meet the love of her life. Not minding the stares and murmurs from people, she ran to the river to meet Andrew.

Elsie hugged him tightly. "I love you Andrew".

"I love you too. I'm so sorry".

"It's alright. Let's get married".

"How is that possible? Your Parents..."

"Shh. We deserve to be happy. We could elope and live in the mountain...I'm just joking. We have to convince them that we deserve to be happy".

"Yes Elsie. Let's go fight for our love!"


A/N: And we've come to the end of the novel series, "The Letter". If you've made it up to this, then I congratulate you.

Have a great day lovely fans of the Nitty wall!
