F is for Forgotten

Here's another drabble for your reading pleasure.  For those of you who don't know, a drabble is a story told in precisely 100 words.

Today's word: FORGOTTEN

You don't need a definition for this one, so let's dig in!


The box lay on the table, unopened and untouched.  The accumulated dust on the green paper proved that it had resided there for many years.  The rest of the room was buried under a similar layer of grime.

This room was home to many forgotten objects.  Objects that people left behind when they moved on.  Knickknacks dropped but deemed too unimportant to warrant a return trip.

Charles stared at the green box.  His first acquisition.  He didn’t know what was inside, but he treasured it nonetheless.  Having been abandoned at birth, he knew what it was to be left behind.


  1. I like drabbles. Thanks for introducing me to them. I will return and drabble some more!

  2. I want to know mooooooooooooore!!!

  3. Definitely sounds like a great beginning of a story I would want to read more of. You write fabulous drabbles. #AtoZChallenge

  4. Love this! You made me want to read more.

  5. That is an attention grabber for sure! And no, I'd never heard of a drabble before! Very cool!

  6. Being 'left behind' is an awful feeling. I am not sure that this box is going to help him!
