Eye Opening Moment
My heart dropped straight into the pit of my stomach disappearing as quickly as it came, leaving emptiness in its wake; all the air flowed out of my body in that instant.

I came to a halt mid-stride to check the pocket properly, the world around me slowed, as I took in the scene; the pocket empty, zipper half open, my phone gone.
