Writing prompt – Finders Keepers

pandoras box
On our regular Monday get-together, we wrote to a prompt from a short story contest, specifically Round 11 of NPR’s Three Minute Fiction feature.
Author Karen Russell challenges us to write a story in which a character finds an object that he or she has no intention of returning.
The story should be no longer than 600 words, so that it can be read in about three minutes. More information and submission details are here.
We had a fab time with this prompt.  Kate’s story features an unexpectedly tasty treat, but you’ll have to wait until Monday to find out what it is.

The deadline for submissions to NPR is 11:59 EDT, Sunday May 12. What are you waiting for?
