Letters From Strangers

Brother on mission. Brother has companion on mission. Brooke has mailbox. Letter in mailbox for Brooke. Letter from brother's companion on brother's mission. It reads:



Dearest Brooklyn,

I currently have the privilege of rooming with your beloved brother, Stephen.  First off, let me say that your handwriting is fantastic. You must really work on your penmanship.  You don't know me, but I felt like, from the moment I saw your picture, that I've know you my entire life.  My name is Elder Logan James Bond, and yes, that is my real last name.  If you really like it, wait two years and it's all yours.  Your brother has given me his blessing to pursue my endeavor in the courtship of his most beautiful sister. I know what you're thinking, what did you do to deserve such an honor? But let's not focus on that now, when we have the rest of our lives to discuss such frivolous topics.  I'm sure your next inquiry is what does your knight in shining armour look like? Well let me leave you with an enclosed self-portrait that I hope you find pleasing to your eyes. Two years sounds like a long time to wait now, but it is not a large price to pay for eternal happiness.  I hope that as you continue to write me while I am on my mission, that our relationship will continue to grow as we develop those emotional bonds that will keep our future temple covenants strong and alive between us.  I await your reply and your enclosed photo that I may hang up in my room, that I may always view it and be reminded to make you proud as I serve the Lord and the people of Bolivia. I wish you the best of luck in your studies. Don't let your thoughts of me distract your work. 

With much love,  Elder Bond.

Speechless. I can't decide what your reaction was. I can see you laughing as you shake your head while reading the letter, but I can also see you loving it. I can also see you sayin, "Oh gosh." Almost feeling like it was ridiculous. I just can't decide what you felt about it. I shall call you.
