An Unexpected Letter

The boy in messenger blues handed Star the letter and when he didn’t immediately dash off she chuckled and reached for the cookie jar, holding it down for him to grab out double-fistfulls of the soft chocolate cookies Kaylee had baked that morning. 

The letter itself was bent and poorly folded and the handwriting was hesitant and clunky, but she managed to decipher it: 


Mizz Macbain,

I unnerstan yer angr at howe thu cloc wynder treetd yu abowt thu strif hows, I meself hav bin orderd arown a lot to in my lif.

I want yu to no that he dus it becuz he luvs yu, and also mayny otter peepel do as well.  Yu ar luvd, Mizz Star.  Mor luvd than yu prolly no.

I jes wantd yu to no that.

Oy!” She called after the retreating messenger, “Who gave you this?” 

“Can’t say!” he shouted shrilly over his shoulder, “city rule!”

She shook her head with a smile, folded the letter up carefully and tucked it against her heart.

((OOC: Someone really did send the above letter to Star today. I’m leaving the writer anonymous (unless he or she wishes to come forward on their own), but I had to share it. Too sweet!))

    An interloper between us, my honey bun?


      • Mr Loosestrife Mr Loosestrife May 28, 2011

        No no.  Star most definitely belongs to me.

        • Cadmus Lupindo Cadmus Lupindo May 28, 2011

          BELONGS to you?

          *Shakes his head, and takes a step away from Loosestrife*

          You better hope Ms. Star never hears you say that.

          *Chuckles at the thought*

          *clamps her hands over her ears and runs somewhere to hide* I don’t. I don’t. I don’t. I don’t. I don’t. 

              • Cadmus Lupindo Cadmus Lupindo May 28, 2011

                Would you like me to shoot him for you Ms. Star?

                • Stargirl Macbain Stargirl Macbain May 28, 2011

                  Take me someplace far, far away Cadmus, where I can’t be found. 

                  • Cadmus Lupindo Cadmus Lupindo May 28, 2011

                    *Big grin*

                    It would be my pleasure, My Dear.

    Aww, that is quite dear and precious!

    Charmant. I was hoping there would be an old-fashioned duel for the lady’s hand.

    • Giles Berithos Giles Berithos May 28, 2011

      Her hand is about all you’d get, since she’s missing so many other of her parts.
