A forgotten present

While cleaning Meg's room, I found the present that she bought for you some time back from the school bookshop. She had wanted it to be a Christmas present and even had it all wrapped up plus a ribbon. It was addressed to the nickname that she gave you, 'Mr. Mango Man'.

It was kept hidden in the deep recess of her shelf. I think she herself had forgotten about it. My initial reaction was to shout out to her to remind her but I immediately halted myself and pushed it back to where it was placed. I do not want to evoke in her the same sense of loss as I did.
