Battered blue headband
From a father she loved long gone
When it’s not on her head it’s in her hand
She desperately holds on.
 
Old plastic lollipop stick
From a boy who hoped to apologise
She accepted it and forgave him
But she doesn’t forgive herself.
 
An old story book, Little Red Riding Hood
From a mother who did her best and tried

Marika Emalee
Age 19
Temporary Residence in Gailatii, Joberjaun (Not Real)

The cloaked man knelt down slowly in the snow, spotting a brown, rumpled lump lying half-buried in the hardened flakes. Digging with hands free of gloves, he uncovered the small lump and held it up so that the shivering girl next to him could see its contents as they both rummaged through it.

Each item they found sparked a memory in the cloaked man's mind, triggering some thought or...

Name: Jim O'Riley
Age: 16

He fiddled with the letter in his hand, before shredding it as much as he could, its contents clearly etched into his mind. With the air of an expert, he threw a torch and lock-pick into his backpack, and rummaged through the drawers till he found a crucifix, adding it also to his artillery. Next was the camera, and the pen-knife he kept for emergencies. Finally, his phone was slipped into a...

The Bag of Elissa

PROMPT: Inventory

Elissa, 17, Chiangmai, Thailand

School starts tomorrow. I pack my bag, each item weighing a little too much, as if it holds expectations as well as billions of atoms. But I've done this a thousand times, and the fact that I'm going to a place that I don't really like, starting a new school year for the last time, shouldn't change that. 
First, the bag. It's dirty at the corners, because I throw it around too much. It's blue and...

Rose's Peculiarity

PROMPT: Inventory

Rose was a peculiar person. She liked the smell of dying pansies and the taste of burnt caramels. Her distinct scent was one of sweet, homegrown lemons and her eyes were painted a gloomy emerald. Gracefully she would glide down the hallway attracting the eyes of jealousy or of great affection. She was an unbelievable success in the art of human creation, yet what she held proved that she was not a woman of perfection:

    "I know it isn't much, but I can't leave it behind." I try to explain, but my mouth feels dry with anxiety. "Here...I've never shown people what's inside, but...I trust you." I take out a cracked picture. "This is you. Before the Break. Before you lost yourself and I almost did. We were siblings, you know. You were always the positive one." You laugh dryly to yourself, and I try not to shiver. "Look, you were a good...

Abandoned Treasures

PROMPT: Inventory

Nora Vickie, 21, Mentone (Alabama, USA)

Nora Vickie's large, tattered faux leather bag held an assortment of things that seemed plain to the naked eye; but meant all the world in hers. You found it, abandoned on the train station that ran from a small Alabama town to the big city. 

As you start to open it, the zipper becomes stuck. With a wrench, the contents almost spill out. The first item that catches your eye with a sparkling wink...

You Will Rule The World

PROMPT: Inventory

 
Standing in the summer air,
Your vision, blurred by dew.
Hearing the crickets,
The sharp noises hurt your ears.
Trying to look for a light source,
Realize nobody can offer it.
The night,
Hot and moist.
The breeze,
Blowing at your face.
The stars,
Glistening like diamonds.
The plate,
Hanging in the sky.
Whether it is your night,
Or the nature's night,
Now it doesn't seem to be mattered.
You cry,
You smile,
You yell,
You rely.

His Bedside Table

PROMPT: Inventory

His bedside table had few things on it. It was a simple wooden table, it would have looked nice were there not burnt spots of the put out cigarettes he ground against the tabletop. Next to the largest of the burnt wood spots was a package of the perpetrator, almost empty. A lighter that wouldn't spark lay beside the last couple cigarettes he wouldn't smoke. A photo was near, its frame dusty and its picture faded. In it stood a...

PROMPT: Inventory

If you look through her brown messenger bag, you wouldn't see much that would interest you.
On top of the unorganized mess, you'd find a tattered comb, bristles missing and singlets of brown hair strands hanging from it. You'd look at it with such distain as you drop the brush, letting the faded handle hit the ground. 
Picking up the next item, you'd find yourself staring at none other than-you, looking at yourself with scrunched eyebrows. Turning the half-broken compact...

Inside her heart, she carries: 

Hopes, of different sizes and lengths...
Dreams, far-fetched or nearby...
Sadness, ripping her apart...
Anger, clouding her judgement...
Happiness, taking the weight off her shoulders...
Love, allowing her to forget her troubles...
Regret, when it goes too far...
And memories...
of everything far, near, and inbetween.

Disappearing Act

She was a strange girl, London. My first clue to this was that she lived in a city of the very same name. Looked to be in her early twenties, but you never could tell. In a careless moment ( or maybe she wanted to be found) she left her bag in the train station. This is what I found:
