Six Sentence Story Prompt: Seal
By Marlene Mesot
Once when I asked my husband Albert for a hug, he printed the word hug on the back of an envelope and handed it to me. I kept that for a long time until it got thrown away accidentally.
Two songs about written love come to mind. One is “Sealed with a Kiss” sung by Brian Hyland of yellow polka dot bikini fame and the other is “Write This Down” by country singer George Strait.
Al was not in the habit of using the “L” word, but he finally said it in January of 2017, two months before he died. I wish I had folded that envelope with the printed word hug and sealed it inside an unused envelope for safe keeping.
