Anne lost her fountain pen. Anne had to stop working because her father and Margot needed space at the table. In the midst of moving around and preparing her beans, it is believed that she threw it into the fire.

But that evening, when my fountain pen still hadn't turned up, we all assumed it had been burned, especially because celluloid is highly inflammable. Our darkest fears were confirmed the next day when Father went to empty the stove and discovered the clip, used to fasten it to a pocket, among the ashes. Not a trace of the gold nib was left.
"It must have melted into stone," Father conjectured.
