The Suitcase

The suitcase lay in the weeds at the side of the tracks. Today, the mischievous brownie had been discovered and tossed away like yesterday’s newspaper.

The satchel scrutinized the desolate landscape. The brownie, a shapeshifter who could change into a suitcase to mingle with the humans, waited. Someone would come along. They always did.

“Well, I’ll be darned,” the old man said. “Look Ethel. Isn’t that the bag you saw in the general store?”

“It is. You said we couldn’t afford it,” she pouted.

“Well, you can afford it now.”

The valise grinned. One man’s trash, another man’s treasure.
