โ€˜Failed To Deliverโ€™ – Email Story // Writing Challenge 2020 – Day 2 ๐Ÿฆ‹

Hey popcorns ๐Ÿฟ

Iโ€™m currently writing this is my garden under some very grey and looming clouds, letโ€™s cross our fingers that they wonโ€™t decide to un-leash their anger on me (rain if youโ€™re not familiar with my eccentric metaphors ๐Ÿ˜‚)

Letโ€™s jump straight into this, before I procrastinate about writing this even more ๐ŸŒน

Writing Challenge 2020 Day 2: write a story told through emails

Hey Charlie,

Itโ€™s Kai. You know, Kai from the coffee shop? When I asked for your number you scribbled down your email (how very old fashioned of you) and I assumed, using my big brains, you wanted me to email you?

Iโ€™m not really an email sort of guy, so do excuse the rather mortifying email address, really; I would change it if I could. It was the only thing I could think of at the exact moment in time unfortunately.

Yours truly,

Kai x

Hello Kai Bear,

I know. The guy who stared at me like I had two heads when I gave you my email? I think your him. Thatโ€™s me, old fashioned as ever, gotta keep it romantic, right? Are you sure about those big brains? Compared to some, maybe.

Really, I love the username. It really does bring a funny image to my head. Not an email guy? What kind of guy are you then? An donโ€™t say a texting guy… no-one likes a texting guy.

Yours old fashionably,

Charlie x

Hey Char,

Come to mine for Xmas? Please, my family want to meet you, theyโ€™ve heard a lot about you (mostly good things) ๐Ÿ˜‰ and now they want to know the mysterious woman Iโ€™ve been dating.

Charlie White, I love you. So, so much.

My deepest affections,

Kai Bear xx

Hey Kai bear,

Of course Iโ€™ll come! My family were going out if town for some new business arrangements anyway on Christmas, leaving me alone with my five fur babies, which as much as I love, it can get a little lonely sometimes.

Kai bear, I love you too. So much more.

Sending my love,

Char xxx

Hey Char Char,

I really enjoyed dinner, like really enjoyed it. I want to spend my days with you. I want to crash in the evenings and stroke your hair as we both fall asleep in front of our favourite film (arguably The Breakfast Club but definitely Groundhog Day) and I want to wake up in the mornings with you in my arms…

Move in with me?

Sending even more love your way,

Kai bear xxx

My cuddly Kai bear,

Yes.

I want to spend the rest of my life with you too. I want to kiss you in front of hundreds of people as weโ€™re pronounced husband and wife, I want to look into your eyes and call you my husband, I want to grow old with you and make unforgettable memories.

Kai Dawson, Iโ€™m going to marry you.

Yours happily married very soon,

Your fiancรฉ xx

Hey my fiancรฉ,

I canโ€™t wait to marry the love of life, my one true companion and my soul mate. I love you so much Char Char.

Sending all my love,

Your future husband on Tuesday 3rd May 2019 x

My dearest Kai bear,

I used to think that the whole point of life was to find someone, marry them, settle down and start a family. Then nurture your kids, grow old together and slowly leave life.

There is so much more to life than me and you. So much more. I donโ€™t know what I want to do with my life. Where I want to go. What things I want to accomplish. But I know that if I marry you, and I close all of those doors, Iโ€™m left with nothing except overdue bills and an overflowing to-do list.

I want more than that. I want experiences that take my breath away, I want to do things without a care in the world. I want to see things, I want to take pictures of me seeing these things, and then I want to take pictures of pictures of me seeing things. I want to live.

I want to be free.

Farewell, my companion.

Yours old fashionably,

Char.

Ps. Life isnโ€™t all about destiny, sometimes you just have to live a little, even if that means trading everything youโ€™ve ever known…


To: charwhite@outlook.com

From: kaibear@gmail.com

To Char,

Why? Why throw away all that we have, all the memories weโ€™ve made to live a little? We can live a little, I can take picture of pictures of you seeing things and then I can take pictures of pictures of you seeing things.

You donโ€™t have to throw away everything Char, your just confused, donโ€™t do this. Please.

Charlie White, you are the love of my life and always will be. Your giving away everything, trading all you have, for one breathless moment, one moment of living a little, whatever that really means.

Kai xx

Ps. I love the way you always scrunch your nose when your laughing, the way your green eyes sparkle every time you look at me, the way you throw your head back in happiness whenever I talk about our funniest memories. I love you Char, more than you will ever know.

MESSAGE FAILED TO DELIVER, RECIPIENT FAILS TO EXIST.

This was so emotional to write! ๐Ÿ˜ญ So fun fact (if you hadnโ€™t noticed) Iโ€™m a romance writer ๐Ÿ˜‚ I got some serious feels, anyone else?

I will try to get back to everyoneโ€™s comments and stay up to date with posts but Iโ€™ve come down with an ear infection which is so painful, but Iโ€™m determined to continue this writing challenge ๐Ÿ–Š Please donโ€™t be offended if I donโ€™t get back to your comments promptly… Iโ€™m trying! ๐Ÿ‘€

Did you prefer Dancing Alone or Message Failed To Deliver? Are you enjoying reading my stories? Did you cry in this (I did! ๐Ÿ˜ญ)?

Thatโ€™s a wrap! Happy reading and writing popcorns ๐Ÿ“š ๐Ÿฟ

Ps. This post took so long to format and demanded the patience of a very patient saint which I have ๐Ÿ˜‚
