Nine year old Meme is lost and in a desperate attempt not to scare her four year old brother she turns the tragedy into a game.

Lost.

Meme held on to her little brother's hand tightly as they swerved through the streets avoiding other people who were all in a hurried frenzy now. She knew it was because of the of the darkened skies. She looked at her four year old brother now, his head was bowed as he looked as his favorite green rubber boots, squeaking with every step he made. She knew that he enjoyed this immensely. She suddenly stopped and Daniel bumped into her accidentally. He looked up at his big sister's face now, her brown short hair blew wildly with the wind. Daniel sensed her anxiety.
" What's wrong Meme?" he asked his jacket hood covering his eyes as looked up to her face. She looked around ignoring him, Meme did not want to scare him so she just smiled down at him and replied ," Nothing.."
Meme knew she was lost and soon mother would arrive home and discover them gone!

The game.

"When are we going home Meme?" He asked.
"In a while Danny." She put on a brave face to cover up the lie.
Meme felt totally helpless and she recalled the time that mummy thought she had lost Daniel at the supermarket. She told herself this is how mummy must have felt. The clouds became darker in the skies and Meme's anxiety increased. She walked a little further down the street and her eyes caught an old abandoned house. She knew the rain was on it's way as the the crashing sound of thunder exploded startling Daniel and herself. How could she tell her brother they were lost without scaring him?
A brilliant idea suddenly popped into her head.
" Danny how about a mystery game?" she asked.
"Now?" he asked incredibly.
" Yeah we'll pretend until the rain is over. We'll go into that old house and pretend that we are lost and seek shelter." Daniel's eyes opened wide with pleasure.
Meme thought of how ironic her words really were because they were really lost and sudden guilt swept over her for lying to her little brother. As they walked up the creaky old stairs Meme convinced herself that she was doing the right thing because if Daniel knew that they were lost surely he would start crying like the baby he still was.
