This morning on my way to work, I couldn’t find my house keys. They were in the bottom of my purse, and it took a bit of rummaging around to unearth them. Now a bit late, I ran to my car only to realize I’d forgotten to take out the recycling–and hallelujah, the truck was late this morning. So I ran up the steps, grabbed my bin and put it out. Sticking my hand in my coat pocket, my car keys weren’t there. They had to have fallen out between the house and the car, so I started to retrace my steps. And found my keys in the recycling bin.
I had myself all set to post a prompt on loosing things, only to discover we’d lost our internet connection at work. Must be the day of lost things.
So for today’s prompt, what does your character lose? Is it important? Something sentimental? Something they are entrusted with keeping for another person? What happens if the other person wants it back?
