My Little Sister

He sat sulking, eyes straying to the clock, waiting his turn at the TV. He could hear the endless Barbie movie in the next room. Ugh! Girls! If only he had a brother instead. They would have raced cars and watched Ben 10 forever. He would trade her any day.

Or would he?

Would the brother call him bhai as sweetly as she did? Would he make silly faces till he laughed after mum yelled at him? Would he hold his hand at the movies, even though he wouldn’t admit he was scared?

Nope! He wasn’t letting her go, ever!

Linking to Write Tribe's 100 words on Saturday for the prompt 'My little sister'.
