Making a list, checking it twice

She looked over her list, crossing off another address before moving on. Folding up the yellow, legal pad page, she tucked it into her pocket with her other notes.

At the next intersection, a neighborhood flyer was tacked to a lamppost. She ripped it down, not even leaving a torn corner scrap of paper.

The information on the flyer, a catalog of pertinent physical descriptions, told of local young man reported missing two weeks prior. What the flyer didn’t include had been more crucial to her needs.

What wasn’t accounted for was the missing man was a universal organ donor.

  2. For me, that was a surprisingly morbid twist to the short! Definitely took me by surprise, and like LionAroundWriting, left me thinking.
