Little Did Elspeth Know

by Adrienne Ferguson
Originally published by on 02/01/2018

Little did Elspeth know, when she accidentally dropped her scarf in the street, that five minutes later a woman would find it, thinking it far too nice to leave.

Nor did Elspeth know that the woman would board a train then absentmindedly leave the scarf behind.

Or that a man would later sit in that seat and think: What a very pretty scarf. I’ll take it home for my wife.

Or that his wife would smile sweetly but put it in the charity bag.

Or that Elspeth would then walk into the charity shop and there would be her scarf!
