A Matter of Perspective

by Elias Scott

Chapter 25

Frank wrote me a quick note and said, "Remember, we never expected things to be perfect anyway. If anything, we expected it to be a lot tougher."

I wrote him again before he had a chance to get back to me.

Frank wrote me three emails while I was still at school so I combined them into one to make it easier to read.

Frank always told me to expect the unexpected and I'm not sure I was ready for what happened. I was to find out that we would only be in contact for three of four more days. Little did I know or expect it.

Authors deserve your feedback. It's the only payment they get. If you go to the top of the page you will find the author's name. Click that and you can email the author easily.* Please take a few moments, if you liked the story, to say so.

[For those who use webmail, or whose regular email client opens when they want to use webmail instead: Please right click the author's name. A menu will open in which you can copy the email address (it goes directly to your clipboard without having the courtesy of mentioning that to you) to paste into your webmail system (Hotmail, Gmail, Yahoo etc). Each browser is subtly different, each Webmail system is different, or we'd give fuller instructions here. We trust you to know how to use your own system. Note: If the email address pastes or arrives with %40 in the middle, replace that weird set of characters with an @ sign.]
