The Letter

Dominique moved to Old Town because it was all he could afford. The problem was the mail, or lack of it, really. His Nana wrote to him, once a week. (He was her favorite grandson.) Only the letters weren’t always delivered.

Complaining to the post office did no good. Old Town, they shrugged, maybe your door is too hard to find?

I’ll make it easy to find, Dominique decided. He painted his door and entryway blue. The next week, he was rewarded to find a lavender-scented envelope with old, slanted handwriting waiting for him: a letter from his beloved Nana.
