Read the letter a man writes to his love.  He assures her during the course of the letter that he is alive and “well”.  What would make him need to assure her of this?  He details a bizarre encounter and the events that unfolded after that.  Did it really happen or was it all “in his head”?  The ending will leave you guessing.
