So I decided to invent a sugar letter for a prisoner who had taken the rap for his lover…
I’m missing you so much; the days are endless without you. Yesterday, I placed some flowers on Richard’s grave. The cold and I stood shivering by his gravestone. No one was around so I confessed everything. By the time I’d finished, it was getting dark and the tombstones were getting darker.
I feel so guilty with you in prison. Passion drove us to his mess. I wish I’d stuck with Richard’s humdrum, instead of going for your sugar kisses. But, I’d murder again for one sweet kiss.

Hope you enjoyed… I seem to be drawn to murder at the moment. Lol.
By the way Charli did an awesome job of featuring me on my blog tour over at Carrot Ranch here’s the link to the post:
Great letter but she may be on trouble when the prison guards check the letter 😟💜💜
I loved this line, Marje – ‘The cold and I stood shivering by his gravestone.’ You captured the moment exceptionally well in your writing. It’s filled with sadness, lust, and regret. I was there at that grave as I read your story.
Ah thank you Hugh. I enjoyed writing this, especially that line! I didn’t plan it it kind of happened!
Nice and dark, Marje! That’s a great confession of a sugar report.
Thanks Charli. I’m not very good at writing romance. It always ends up dark… lol.
“The cold and I stood shivering by his gravestone.”
Thank you! 🙂
