Jane walked through the gallery smelling like a leftover tragedy and went straight to her grandmother's room. She knelt on the floor and lifted the lid of a glass jar kept in the corner. Letters tied with jute threads, dried roses, and old photographs.
She untied the jute threads to reveal the letter that she send to her grandmother while se was young. She opened the 1st letter that read-
How are you? I am fine. Mom and dad allowed me to write this letter all by myself. I always wanted to write one but they never allowed it. They said I only know to scribble. They are wrong, isn't it granny? As you know I have grown up now. I am turning 7 years tomorrow. I hop you would send me a lot of gifts.....
Bye grandma ,
We will meet soon
Jane was suprised to see that her grandma still kept her letters.
She continued reading-
I am turning 12 next week. We are arranging a great party next week. I hope that you would come.
As you know I am turning 15 on this Friday. My parents want me to invite you. I hope you won't send me any more gifts ( I am not a kid).
I turned 20 last week. Sorry for the delayed letter.
As she went through each letter, she saw how she changed and the increase in gap.
She searched for more but realized, she has not written no more.
She hadn't sentt any letters for the past 5 years. She tied back the letters and opened the drawer. To her suprise there are 5 gifts wrapped in shining golden gift paper.
She could only hug them and cry. Because her Dear granny is no more......
