Mystery Solved


By Jason E. Maddux

It happened suddenly. So sudden no one noticed at first. One of life’s greatest mysteries solved, and nobody picked up on it. Then reports began to trickle in. Individuals around the world posted about it on social media, timidly to start. No one wanted to sound crazy.
Once the hashtag started trending, the story went mainstream. Local, national, and international networks carried the news. #missingnomore appeared on everyone’s lips and in their feeds.

Apparently, a little-known Welsh fairy, Sock Finder Madix, ended her 500-year hibernation and got to work. She promises to wake her little sister, Key Finder Madix, soon.
