“Excuse me, is this your jacket? It seems you left it on that bench over there!, exclaimed a man with long brown hair, tied back in a ponytail. “Oh my, I believe this is my jacket. Thank you”, responded another man wearing a dark green shirt. “This jacket was my grandad’s from when he fought in the war”. The man quickly walked over and grabbed his jacket, sighing with relief. As soon as he grasped it, he put it on as if worried he’d leave it again. Now he had it, his face shone with joy. His jacket was safe.

Hi Ben, what a charming 100WC. I love the gentle way you have written the interaction between the two men. Losing a jacket which meant so much to the character, and having it returned so kindly, is such a wonderful idea from this photo. Well done.
