Petals 12 July 2020

The envelope had no return address and held only some dried flower petals. She smelled the sweet scent before she opened it, and it clung to the tips of her fingers. She thought they must be lavender, though there was more grey than purple in the little dusting of petals. A feeling of calm came over her, but maybe that was because she’d read that lavender was a scent used in calming oils and lotions.

Still, she couldn’t think of anyone who might have sent this to her. The post mark was blurred so she couldn’t tell where it even came from. She didn’t think anyone knew about her personal gremlins, well, no one but her best friend, JoJo. And JoJo would be more likely to send her a kick in the ass.

Smiling to herself, at that picture of a gift from JoJo, Lexi stuffed the envelope in the top drawer of her desk and went back to contemplating exactly what she was going to do with her life. Right now, the empty coffee cup was the biggest dilemma she could handle.
