Chain Letter

I thought writing a fictional chain letter might be a fun response to Day 18’s prompt 🙂A Month of Mini Writing Challenges

Dear Friend,

You can never have too much good fortune, can you?  That’s why I’m sending you this letter, to share with you this easily accessible source of good luck.  To obtain it, all you have to do is send a copy of this letter to another 13 people and share the good luck with them.  It’s so easy, the question is, why wouldn’t you?

Just in case you are sceptical (which is totally understandable, I too was sceptical once, until I saw the results of this letter in action) I thought I would tell you some real life instances of where this letter has had an impact on the lives of others.

A friend who had received a copy of this letter earlier in the chain, had a feeling that he had to forward it on.  He couldn’t explain it, but he was so glad he listened to his instinct.  A few days later he won the jackpot on the lottery.  Now, he drives a top end car, lives in a mansion, is married to a model and owns a tropical island.  He is even at the top of the list to get a luxury apartment in the first state-of-the-art living accommodation on Mars as soon as it becomes available.

On the other hand, another acquaintance who got the letter decided to ignore it.  He didn’t believe in such things and so deliberately broke the chain.  The day after, his car fell apart before his eyes.  The day after that his house burnt down.  And on the third day he died.

I think the stories speak for themselves.  Don’t delay.  Send out your letters today.  You only have 24 hours to do it.  If you don’t…

Wishing you all the luck in the world,

Another Lucky Friend

[P.S.  Please don’t miss out on this great opportunity.  If for some reason you would like to take advantage of this amazing, life-changing, once-in-a-lifetime chance but won’t be able to send out the letters, I will be happy to help.  Just send £100 to the address at the top of this letter.  It’s only a small amount, one that you will make back a hundred times over, and more.]
