Missing Photos - Lost and Found

Missing Photos - Lost and Found
Short story

A bitter reclusive repairwoman in a rapidly gentrifying Johannesburg is thrown back into the world she’s running away from when a self-centered journalist barges in looking to do a story about her eviction to save her job. Aunty, with a looming eviction, reluctantly decides to do the story for Nthabi in order to save her shop despite her dislike for the new world. She is keen to talk about the history of electronics, the importance of reliable appliances and her contempt for newness. “Those things break, they always break”. But the young journalist is more interested in the enchanting lost and found earring board, a dedication to a long lost love.
