Everyone surely ever lost something, either it is valuable or not. Yet have you ever lost something mysteriously? It is like going somewhere and you will never see it again. I ever experienced that event of losing something mysteriously. It was my favorite earrings. When I was in junior high school, my mother took me to a jewelry shop in the traditional market. She let me choose the earring that I like. I was so excited. I felt slightly difficult to choose one pair of earrings because I saw many beautiful earrings, which attracted my attention. After I considered it, finally I chose a pair of Mickey-mouse-head earrings with small jewel on both its ears.
I liked that earring. It was simple, small, cute, and not too much glamour for me. I even wore it on both my ears, though
my mother had not paid it yet. On our way home, I asked my mother how much was it. She did not want to tell me and said that as long as I liked it, she would buy it. I thanked her and said that I really liked it. She just laughed and said that it did not matter.
I wore my new earring all day. Even when I was taking a bath, it was still on both my ears. One day, in the morning, I wanted to clean it. I thought there were some soap remnants on it. Therefore, for the first time since I wore it, I took it off. I cleaned it on every side. After that, I just put it in my draw since I wanted to wear it later.
A few hours had passed. In the evening, after I took a bath, I wanted to wear my earring again. Initially, I did not realize there was something wrong. After I brushed my hair, I searched my earring. Unexpectedly, as I opened the draw, I did not see anything. I did not see my earring. The thing that I saw was an empty inside draw. My eyes suddenly opened wide. I automatically opened another draw side hurriedly. I had tried to find my earring in every side of drawer. I tried to remember again where I had placed it. I was totally sure that I had put it in the second side draw. Then, I tried to search it again. I removed everything in every draw and wished that earring were tucked into something or whatever. Nevertheless, I still did not find it. I was somewhat hopeless. Then, for the last time, I opened the second drawer. There was still nothing. I was so curious. I thought that perhaps I could find it later, on another day.
The next day, I tried to search my earring again. I even searched it under my bed. However, I still did not find it. I did not tell my mother about this because I was afraid she would be mad at me. Then, I asked my brother secretly if he had seen my earring, but his answer was simply ‘no’. I started to think that there was someone who took it away. Yet no one knew where I placed it but me. Then, I searched on every side of my dressing table, under the dressing table, and at last, I searched back in the draw. At that time, I was really hopeless and tired. I finally gave up and let it gone.
Several days later, my mother realized that I did not wear my earring and she asked me about that. I said that I put it on my dressing table and would wear it later. She looked not sure with my answer. Then, she asked me again and emphasized her question if I really had put it on the dressing table. I became panic and stammered. Next, she asked me if the earring had been still existing or not. I finally told the truth honestly. I thought she was mad, so I was ready to be scolded by her. However, she said that I had to be more careful to put something. I was surprised and asked if she had been mad at me. She just said that sometimes we had to let something gone though it was unreasonable. I just nodded, but I was still curious where that earring had gone. Until now, I still never see it anymore.
