Short Fiction #27 Taking Turns
â€œThatâ€™s not fair!â€ shouted Thomas.
â€œYes it is,â€ retorted Olivia.
â€œBut you went first yesterday,â€ he wailed.
â€œItâ€™s my turn to go first today,â€ he demanded.
Olivia stood firmly, lips pursed, arms folded.
â€œLet me get past,â€ insisted Thomas.
â€œNO! Get lost! Iâ€™m having first turn today,â€ said Olivia. â€œI donâ€™t care what you say â€“ so there!â€ She spun around, walked through the door and slammed it shut. Thomas gasped. He stared at the closed door.
â€œWhy?â€ he mumbled to himself. â€œWhy does she does do this to me? Sheâ€™s had first shower every day this year.â€
