Today’s Friday Fictioneers story is a bit on the sobering side, but I have some excellent news after the story, so please, read through to the end…
To Be a Girl (100 words)
You don’t know what it’s like to be a girl.
How they raise you on Amber Alerts and CSI, tell you ponytails are abductors’ handles, give you a can of mace, but blame you if anything goes awry.
“You shouldn’t a’worn leggings, ya know?”
So I walk with boots ready to kick and an arsenal of weapons on my back. Fear follows like a dog, and I’m not always sure he’s on my side.
Our eyes met before you crossed to the other side. You’ll never know what it’s like to be a girl, and I’ll never know your name.
And now for the wonderful, exciting, fantabulous news….
