This Morning’s Prompt


My Inspired Story

It’s a miracle our plans haven’t derailed with everything going on in the world right now. There’s still time for things to go left, but we’re at the gate; we have our negative tests, our passports; UAE hasn’t closed its borders yet.

“Now boarding flight 722. Toronto to Dubai.”

My heart leaps in my chest. This is it! After postponing our wedding three times, finally settling for a small ceremony at the magistrate’s office in the county jail because it was the only one open after the one at City Hall shut down due to a positive case, temporarily losing Grandma’s ring and Mama freaking out to the point of having a full-on asthma attack over it, we’re together, we’re married, and we’re just twelve hours nonstop from a two-week honeymoon in the most beautiful city in the world!

“Shit! Shit, shit, shit, shit!”

I turn to my husband—I still get giddy when I say it—he’s spinning around like a dog chasing his tail. He’s patting his chest, his back pockets. Rubbing his hands all over his naked face.

“What happened?”

“I lost my mask.”
