WonHundred Word Wednesday

This week's prompt:  

“What do you mean, you lost the lottery ticket?” His eyes were wide.
“It was right here. On the counter where we put it after the numbers were called last night.”
“So where is it now?” he asked.
“I don’t know.”
Our teen son walked through the back door.
“Josh, did you see a lottery ticket on the counter?” I asked.
He shrugged. “Yeah, I threw it away.”
“What?” my husband and I both yelled.
“I just dumped the trash.”

We raced to the front door and watched in horror as our garbage can was dumped into the monstrous truck.

September 17th: Most vivid amongst the memories of his home town
Most vivid amongst the memories of his home town was the image of the little girl on the side of the road. Her eyes were wide, her hair a mess. Skinny little arms wrapped around her tattered shirt and her bare feet were bloody.
She’d stood in the snow and stared at the cars passing as if not sure what to do next. 
When he pulled over to offer his assistance, she burst into tears.
“Where are your parents?”
“Mommy didn’t get away.”
“Where is your mommy?” he’d asked.
The girl pointed into the dark forest. “The wolves got her.”
