just a letter

Olivia was doing her normal early morning blogging on the Internet, trying to wake up with a cup of coffee and granola bar. She kept yawning as if nothing would wake her up. She'd best go back to bed. But then she saw the e-mail from Eric. She hadn't heard from him in months on her computer and then to get an e-mail. She stared at it for the longest time. Did she really want to open it and see what he had to say? She deleted it. Quickly, and got out of her e-mail. She got out of bed and drank at her coffee then, but kept coming back to her laptop wondering what he had to say.

No. There was no need. She told herself. They weren't anything. He meant nothing to her. She was over him. Didn't want to start up anything. There was nothing to start. Nothing.

Olivia closed her laptop and went to take a shower.

But it was just an e-mail. She kept thinking as she soaped up. Then shampooed her hair and conditioned it. Really, did she want to know what this about with Eric? Was she being selfish? Was she being mean?

She went to get dressed and came back to the laptop. Roger gave her a quick kiss and told her he was ready to go.

"Can you bring us some coffee to class?" She looked at him.

"Sure." He nodded and went to the kitchen. Olivia opened her laptop and recovered Eric's e-mail.

Liv,

Hopefully, you won't delete this. But you were right. Probably right about everything with Amanda. And, and I dunno what to do. Can you tell me what to do? What would you do? If you have any answers, please will you let me know.

I still love you.

xoxo

Nope, I wouldn't of read it. A simple email isn't enough if you ask me. Hm...
