Sally looked around but there was no sign of it anywhere.
Where could she have dropped it? She wondered. Feeling her earlobes again in hope of discovering the earring, but her hand came back empty.
She thought back to her movements. She came into the garden and went near the flower beds. Then she took a look at the newly planted tulip bulbs and it was at this point that she touched her ear to feel the new diamond studs her daughter had given her as a birthday present. One was missing and from that point, she had been retracing her step and trying to find it.
It was almost dark and she reluctantly turned to go in when in the fading light, something glinted among the delicate primroses. Hopefully, she bent down and there it was, nestled among the flowers. Twinkling at her, as if giving her a wink.
