Today’s Word: Expressive

The email read, ". . . and they lived happily ever after".
Anastasia stared at those words, her heart fluttering in her chest like pigeon wings. The subject line was blank, and the return address was a scramble of letters and numbers.

Gregory hadn't sent it. He wouldn't recognize those words, set in that pattern. He was at work, but he only called when he needed lunch brought out and he had never written her an email. No, this wasn't Greg. This was someone else, someone expressive; someone that knew life began after those words, not before them.
