Writing Challenge I – Lev Lazinskiy

Lev Lazinskiy


My Dearest Lev,

You have no idea how difficult it is for me to write you this letter, but I have had some feeling lately that I just have to get off of my chest. I saw you come home last night with that other woman. You brought her into the bathroom all wrapped up in plastic , took her out of her case, threw some batteries in, and let her do what she does best. She spun around and around and cleaned you up real nice. In the end, you threw her in a shiny glass case and went to sleep. Did you really think I would not notice this?

You are probably the most selfish person that I have ever met in my life. You are so quick to forget all of the good times that we have had, and all of the good that I have done for you. Remember when you got your braces on? Remember when you had pieces of steak and eggs stuck in your teeth? Who cleaned them for you, and gave you the confident smile that you needed to succeed. I waited on you night and day, and was overjoyed by the opportunity that you gave me to perform my duties. I always gave it my all, I cannot believe you would just abandon me like this.

Where did I go wrong? Why can’t I satisfy you any more. I know that I’m kind of old now, and my hair is not as clean as it once was, but I cannot help that. Don’t you understand that the reason why I look like this is because of you? I am sorry that I do not run on batteries, I am sorry that I do not spin around, I am sorry that I cannot meet all of your needs like I used to.

After all of the times that I made you feel good about yourself, I cannot believe that you would put her in a glass case, and leave me all alone, stained with chlorine, in this pathetic dirty cup with all of your other used and abandoned servants. I guess I was naive to believe that things would be different between us. I heard about guys like you, and I should have known better than to let my feelings get the best of me. I hope she brings you happiness, and I just want to know that you will always have a special place
in my bristles.
