Dear Henrietta,
Ha! Shadow must have been God’s answer to my prayer that an innocent brawl squelch your adventurous spirit. I hope the nipping beast has taught you a lesson. Seeing that Shadow could not even succumb to your charms, I shall assume that the farmer has lost the bet.
I shall admit that I have not thought of Flora in quite some time. Another has consumed my every thought and dream. Flora’s neglect reveals that she cares little for me. A more constant presence in my life has lead to a blossoming love. At least on my part.
Sincerely,
Charles
