9:52 pm

I have lost the letterbox key and I have less than twelve hours in which to find it before its owner returns to the flat tomorrow.

There is only one key to this letterbox in existence. I have spent over two months taking care of this key as if it were the Star of India, for like the Star of India it is irreplaceable.

The key was placed in its proper place on top of the bookcase by the door after I gathered the mail today. An hour later, it was gone.

I have been searching for several hours.

It is not behind or under the bookcase.
It is not in the rubbish bin.
It is not in my bag.
It is not in the fridge.

I feel so alone.
