Sisters (Excerpt)
by Doug Jantzen

 

You up?
Not yet.

And now?
You bet.

 

Let’s play.
Okay.

With what?
You say.

 

A toy?
Which one?
These dolls?
Sounds fun.

 

Now what?
A game.
Dress up?
That’s lame.

 

Hungry?
I guess.
A snack?
Oh, yes.

 

Cake’s good.
That’s true.
One piece?
No, two.

 

What next?
Outside.
For what?
Bike ride.

 

Whoo Hoo!
Whoopee!
Let’s race.
On three.
