It was a reoccurring meeting, which I deleted the the original request long back. I just declined all occurrences, when I only wanted to decline one. So how can I get that back?

When I decline a meeting, the invite does not go to my deleted folder. Where could it be? I have no rules set up to move it elsewhere.
