Theme 124 - Lost

From @anushreekejriwa: I found the shell by the shore, pristine white it caught my attention. Trying to find a pearl in it, it slipped away and went to another shore. I lost the pearl but hope someone gets it and cherishes its beauty.

From @Pscripturient: After running for days my shoes gave way to a peeping toe. Shoes found outside a shrine. The hole made it difficult to maintain pace. I left them, making the remaining journey barefeet. Soles burning, I started thinking of the flag. While finishing, I remembered my shoes were lost, realizing I don’t need them anymore.

From @PeaceOVent: Chance meetings are the cruelest accidents of nature. One look at him and she knew she had made the biggest mistake in letting go. He was content, in love with another. She was happy for him. He was the nicest boy she had gotten over. Oh well, "Never mind, I'll find someone like you".

From @maruwahna:

Her wiry frame hugged him hard.

Baba,Mumma was wearing those red bangles.I too want to look beautiful !
But you‘re already beautiful,princess.
*lad bazaar*
Beti , which color did you want? Beti ? Beti?
Anisha stared at the faces passing by, no one smiled at her like baba did.She felt alone.

From @vchatting:

"Omg! The bag is lost! Have you seen it ? No? It had all Credit cards, license, everything... Now....? " The search continued.... Finally, an FIR, registered ; card companies, intimated.

Next morning, as he shut the room, to dress up for office, he found the bag,hanging from the top hook behind the door, quietly mocking at his forgetfulness!

From @kunalbaidmehta: The year was 1995. Rajeev's father had got him a CD player from his US visit and Rajeev wanted to show it off in school. In all the excitement, he forgot it in his classroom that day. He tried checking the 'Lost and Found' section next day but he knew it was a lost cause.

From @BoozeSexSundry: We clip onto each other like silly little magnetized paper clips. It's 4 in the morning, we're hungover as hell. Not remembering what the other's last name is. We smell of hookah and whiskey, little guilt and more want. It's 4 in the morning and we're waiting for the other to take their toothbrush along and leave.

From @roshd: They sat close to each other as they solved the crossword in the newspaper. Stuck on a four letter word starting with ‘k', he looked up at her and seemed lost for words. “Kiss me”, she wished fervently. “The word is kiss”, he exclaimed triumphantly, threw away the paper and matched the word with action.

From @karthikisthin:

It was somewhere behind the ketchup bottles and mixer grinder, probably closer to the knife set, soup spoons and the special ‘guest’ tumblers.

Though, she could’ve sworn she last saw it in her cupboard drawer, close to her wedding bangles and meagre life savings.

Truth is, her talents abandoned her the day she married him.

From @Ophelia_sDream:

They always stared at her; she was looked at with great curiosity, not because she was weird or eccentric but because she possessed a special power that they didn’t.

She had the power of being lost in her thoughts, in her world of oblivion, oblivious to the world full of agony that breathed around her.

From @michramiah: She searched everywhere. On every crisp page in every book. In every television show or movie. On every website online, trusted or sketchy. She travelled the world, interacting with every person she came across. But it couldn't be found. Her ability to love was lost forever.

From @CruciFire:

A walk, post lunch.
A song, in between briefs.
A dramatic fight before meetings.
A sarcastic taunt before the brainstorm.
Not all who wander are lost.
Little moments of joy that power you through the day!

From @TheScotchGirl: He wanted her bad. She didn't want him, but was her mind playing tricks when her heart skipped a beat on noticing him today?  He slyly looked her way, not even a second glance he realized. His mother was waiting for his decision today about Mr Varma's daughter.  He looks up pleading for help.

From @tazeenzafar:

She lay there on the green grass gazing up the sky.
‘So how does it feel?’ I asked.
She was silent. A tear trickled down her cheek and fell sideways.  She seemed lost in the starry sky; the one she had seen for the first time in her 20 year old life.
