i.
I lost my voice one day. I woke up to a hollow echo in the base my throat and knew I’d lost something special before I’d ever had a chance to say anything worthwhile. I checked under the bed and tried the lost and found, but couldn’t even ask if anyone had heard it lately.


ii.
I found my voice one day. I took long walks with silent friends, made travel plans and came home tired but fulfilled. I pulled a pen from the junk drawer, or sat down at a keyboard, or bought a journal on a whim and found it curled up around my fingers, sleeping, rusty, but alive.
This was one 55 word story, but sometimes not even I can compress that much :XD: There was clearly too much material, so I split it into two stories; one about losing your voice and one about finding it. 55 words each.

I like this one a lot :D

Very nice!  I interpret it as a shy person finding they can still speak through the anonymity of writing, manually or on the computer.
