Sisters (Most Irritating Thing Ever Theme)

Post by Varda » Sun Sep 29, 2013 8:36 pm

“Stop copying me!” Liz sprinted down the iron railroad beam, trying to ditch her little sister. Distantly, a train whistled.

“Stop copying me!” echoed Grace. The heels of her Mary Janes sang against the rail.

Liz rolled her eyes. “Omigosh. Could you BE more annoying?” The track shook beneath their feet.

Grace blew a raspberry. “Could you BE more annoying?”

Something snapped inside Liz. She shoved Grace backwards. Hard.

Grace’s scream was swallowed by the roar of the passing engine.

“Grace! Don’t leave me!” Liz wailed.

“Don’t leave me!”

Liz turned.

Grace, ghostly now, grinned. “Can’t ditch me that easily!”

I don't know why this made me think of this. Years since I've seen it...my computer had a square screen...

I like it with sisters. Oh my Odin, what a horrid fate...can you imagine when she's in her thirties and her eight-year-old sister is still...or in her 90's?

Y'know, I've never seen that video before... hilarious. An eternity haunted by Jar-Jar? Fate worse than death!

My husband called this drabble funnysad. Maybe just a tad too sad to really be funny. Needs more Jar-Jar.

I liked this a lot. The sibling angst was dead on. There is implied back-story plus what happens next squeezed into 100 words. Well done!
“It’s what you do with it that counts.” But, one look at his twabble convinced her. A double entendre’s size does matter.
