Mia is Special

“Time for bed, princess!” trilled Mom.

Little Mia said, “Why?”

“So you can sleep, and have lots of energy tomorrow.”

“I don’t need sleep.”

“Of course you do, dear.”

Mia laid awake in her big-girl bed all night, wondering what sleep was and why everyone else did it so much.


This story was based on the prompt “what for” at TypeTrigger.

Mia will appear in Special People, my superhero-with-a-twist serial web fiction, in a future story.

“Heck if I know.”

The Lonely Cabbage

He knew it was a blessing to be special, to stand out, but sometimes it could be very isolating. Though surrounded by a sea of people, he felt alone, like a cabbage in a field of lettuce.

Plus this old Ukrainian lady kept trying to make soup out of him.
