She sat in the dark, bat in hand while two younger sisters slept. The bedroom door creaked open; the bat splintered their big brother’s toe.
Oh, wow, well done. The poor girl having to keep watch…
Hilarious, I thoroughly enjoyed it. (I have two brothers.)
Subtle… but powerful..an older sister protecting her younger ones from a predator brother.
Interesting how much is left untold here. Why was she waiting up with the bat? Did she know it was going to be their brother? What was he doing there?
It can obviously be interpreted in a very light-hearted or a very dark way, depending on the inclination of the reader. I prefer to see it as light-hearted. Maybe that’s just my personality.
Well done Fran.Hugs Dodie
