The Letter

by Destiny | Score: 2450

"And so the wizard pulled the sword from the w-" 
The sudden ringing of my doorbell startled me, pulling me from the world I was creating and immersed in. 
Standing up from my desk I stretched, sighing from the satisfying pop. Making my way to the door and opening it I found no one there, peeking my head out I looked both ways and saw nothing. Huh.
About to close the door, I stopped when I saw a letter on the ground. That's odd, why not just put it in the mailbox? I could see from where I stood that it was empty. 
Shaking my head I bent down and grabbed the mysterious letter before going back inside, being sure to lock the door behind me. 
Looking down I the letter I saw the only thing on it was crisp and pristine cursive that read, " I am sorry."
What? Who wrote this? What were they sorry for? Was this meant for me or was there some type of mix-up? 
Well, only one way to find out, making my way towards the living room I sat on the couch before proceeding to open the letter.
The first sentence both intrigued me and caught me off guard.
" It wasn't my fault, they poisoned him, they put it in his food, I'm innocent."
