“They’re home!” The oldest girl said.
He ran to the window to see what they brought home.
“No!” He exclaimed. “That’s not fair!”
He started to cry. He felt neglected – cheated. Only 7 years old, he knew better than anyone that life was not fair.
He ran to his bedroom, which he shared with his younger sister, and slammed the door. His sisters clamored over the new arrival, while he covered his head with his pillows, trying desperately to drown out the noise.
His Mom knocked on his door. “Junior, come out and meet your new baby sister, Lenore.”
Today is my birthday, and this drabble is dedicated to my brother, who was not at all amused to see my Mom bring home another girl. He already had four sisters, and he wanted a brother.
