This weekend’s challenge is to write a story entitled ‘Lost’ in exactly 33 words. The word ‘lost’ can only appear in the title, not your 33 words. Any reference to the TV show could result in another visit to see the editors in the Trifecta offices.



I had the power
to open everything
that was closed to me.
Even the rusted lock on
the back gate was no match
for my key.  How careless,
how wretched to be blind.


Thirty-three words on the money.  Just enough. . .
