Five Sentence Fiction – Abandon

It was found on the street, a puzzle box, containing tiny pieces that when placed together were to form a map of inner city Sydney circa 1960.

A house hold clean up, 70 years in the making, had resulted in items being abandoned street side.

The death of her elderly neighbour and the real estate auction sign that appeared soon after, signalled that change was in the air.

That was more than a year ago, and only yesterday, had the time felt right to assemble the puzzle.

Family and true ‘ Aussie’ friends gathered around the table, and piece by piece the jig saw was placed into position, a most memorable way to herald in Australia Day 2015.

    A lovely piece, this would be easy to continue with, the possibilities using the puzzle, are vast. Imagine if a piece was missing?
