Here I’m telling a story about Getting Lost. The day I got lost on a hot, burning summer day! I remember that day like it was yesterday!
Five years had passed since Fannie and her friend Laura left school. Fannie used to wonder how Laura was until they chanced upon each other in the market one day.
Fannie promised to visit Laura the coming Sunday morning. So on the appointed day, Fannie drove her car into the housing estate where Laura lived. Ten years was a long time and the once-familiar surroundings had changed drastically. Everything seemed strange. Fannie tried to look for familiar landmarks but she could not see any.
She drove in the direction that she thought was the way to Laura’s house, but the more she drove the more she realized that she did not know where she was. She was lost. It was incredible how she could lose her way in a place that once she knew like the back of her hand, but the fact remained that she was lost.
There was only one thing to do, and that was to call Laura and ask for help. Thank God for the mobile phone. She parked her car with a mini market and made the call to Laura. Laura said she would come to the mini-market.
A few minutes later, Laura appeared in her car. Fannie was very relieved. She followed Laura to her house where the two friends renewed their friendship over a cup of tea.
