10 Minute Object Writing Exercise #3

Object: Suitcase

I can hear the latch popping open now. The suitcase hits the top of the bed open and ready for business. I stuff it with everything I need to escape my everyday world for a few days or maybe a month or perhaps a year. I don't know how long this trip will be this time. All that matters is that it's with me when I take off into the unknown. Always there, always familiar. I trust it to have what I need every time it's opened, so I guard it with my life. If it were to disappear I'll be losing everything I need to survive. Clothes, toiletries and pictures from my past. It doesn't complain where it's going or for how long, because it's married to my adventures.
