Chapter Two: Correspondence
Kathy went to her mailbox as she did every day, she reached inside always hoping to find some correspondence from her parents, or a teacher that she had been fond of.
She occasionally received mail from a teacher, or a colleague, or one of the few people she had found a form of friendship with.
It always delighted her when she did.
She never received anything from her parents, not one word at all since they had left her.
Nevertheless, personal mail was rare.
When her fingers touched the envelope inside she became very excited.
Kathy ignored the fact that the letter in her box was neither stamped nor metered.
Its arrival was completely unexpected.
She was delighted.
There was a mystery in front of her, she did not have a clue what it might lead to.
She peeled the envelope open, took out its contents and read it, by doing so, she found herself entering into a conspiracy.
The script was written in an alphabet that no person other than herself could have known, and in a language from another time and place entirely, with no connection to the modern world.
She had to stretch her mind in unexpected ways to even recognize the pattern. When she did she was astounded.
She was faced with a puzzle like no other she had ever seen.
