The Envelope, Please

I got home late tonight. Sophie was already in bed. It was sitting on the mail table, still sealed, in an envelope decorated with school stuff — apples and mortarboards — addressed to Sophie.

The Teacher Letter.

I considered ripping it open; she wouldn’t really know the difference. But I couldn’t do that. So there it sits, waiting til morning, the whole year inside.
