â€œBELI! You may have already WON a million gold! Details inside!â€?
I scoffed as I sorted through the mail, tossing the junk letters into the burning fire. Frostmaw, who had been snoozing on the rug near the fireplace, gave me an irritated growl as a misaimed envelope tripped over his head. I crouched down, patting him as I inspected the last envelope in my hand. It was a red envelope with no return address at it, addressed to me in fancy gold lettering.
I prayed that it wasnâ€™t yet another request for me ministering services. Sitting down and writing sermons was one thing, but making it interesting was another and entirely too time-consuming especially when summer days were too short.
Much to me surprise, it wasnâ€™t that kind of letter.
â€œCongratulations Miss Beli!

Huh. How about that? I did win me some gold after all!
