It's your loss. Think things through next time. It's not always the best idea to trade on the spot, even when the trader follows you around for the remainder of the comp asking you to trade with him because you showed interest at one point (definitely didn't happen to me.) The puzzle is his now, he has the right to entirely ignore you, and unless you pay for all the shipping I doubt he will want to waste his time.

And, unless you offer money, I doubt he'll give it back. You made the mistake of trading something, now you must live with the fact that the only way to get the puzzle back is to buy a new one. I know how this feels, I did the same thing with some Lego minifigures. I traded them, then regretted it. Its been years, and I still miss those Legos, but will never ever ask for them back. The only way you should do this is to say your sorry, that you regret the trade, and you'll trade him back the cube he gave you (or something better). Other than that, you must leave it be, and just buy a new cube. Its sad, but, something we must move on.
Sorry if this was mean or unhelpful, but this is how these things work.

That is exactly what I plan to do. Plus, I will add that it was also a mistake because the puzzle I traded was a gift from someone that I love very much.

Don't question the 14, I am not yet accustomed to planning the first pair. I can do it a lot, but sometimes there are cases where I just cannot do it and have to do some other stuff that makes the first pair easier for me to see.
