There was a lunchbox on the table.
Was it hers?
She checked her bag. An identical lunchbox looked up at her.
Not hers. Then…
She pulled out her phone and dialled a familiar number.
“Hey, did you take your lunchbox?”
Mystery solved. Her forgetful brother had left his lunch behind. Again. Fortunately for him, their offices were on the same street. It would be a small matter for him to swing by her office and pick it up during lunch break.
She slipped the other lunchbox into her bag and rushed off to catch the train to work.
Only to leave her bag at her seat.
Well, almost leave her bag at her seat. A helpful fellow passenger called after her before she got off the train empty handed.
Haha. That would have been embarrassing.
