The Last One (10 Minute Challenge)

I reached for the last present under the tree.


It was wrapped with a sheet of of brown paper and tied conventionally with a cliché of a red ribbon--at least the bow was nice.


But no matter.


I shook the enigmatic box, guessing what was inside before I tore it open with glee, like all the other children in the room who were now playing with their toy cars and dolls.


Clunk, clunk, clunk


I flipped the gift over, finding a tail of the bow to gracefully untie the decorative knot.


Upon finding the tail I was searching for, I discovered a tag.


I read it. I read it again.


I squinted my eyes and read it. I squinted my eyes once more and read it again.


The present was not for me.
