The Fifth Package (May 2015 Lit Topic)

Post by Justin » Thu Sep 05, 2019 11:49 pm

A quartet of problems was laid out before Piper, and he was well aware of how bad they were likely to get. Four impromptu shells of brown paper, twine and almighty headache. Such a busy weekend, that had been. So many things to do, so many things done, and so many things to fix afterwards. Some of them were likely irreparable, and that was fine. Consequence was a part of the learning process, and Piper had never been shy about saying so. And oh lord, was this an invitation of consequence.

In the midst of these problems, there was one more bit of brown paper and twine. This one was addressed to him.

He opened the package, and a tiny trinket slipped to the countertop.

He read the letter.

It was brief, but it said everything that needed to be said.

He smiled, and folded the paper back up.

The trinket went into a pocket.

This was the hard way, for sure - and while he lamented that it seemed as though the easy way were always closed off, he also knew damn well that walking past the easy way was what all of them had in common.

With an amused sigh and a shake of his head, he took up the first of the other packages and stepped out to see it delivered.
Listen to them long enough, and all stories are ghost stories.
