100 Word Challenge: Letter

Using “letter” for inspiration, write 100 Words – 100 exactly – no more, no less. You can either use the word – or any form of the word – as one of your 100, or it can be implied

My eyes widened in surprise as Cora handed me the letter.

I opened the envelope with shaking hands.  Beads of sweat dotted my forehead.

Mr. Parker, the investigator, had worked so hard and tirelessly to find the answer.

Stinging, my eyes flooded with tears as I began to read the letter. The search of over twenty years had finally come to an end.

My mother had finally been located and now she was anxiously looking forward to seeing me again.

There are so many questions I need to ask her, now I will  get the answers to all of them.
