Short Piece #6 – Drabble

Standard

So, for fun today I wrote a “drabble,” which is actually one of my favorite types of short fiction. A drabble, as evinced below, is a story that introduces characters and tension—in exactly 100 words. No more, no less. Enjoy!

               What if I should throw myself into an adventure? I know myself all too well: shyness and a peculiar lack of curiosity are my defining traits. It would be foolhardy of me to do such a thing, and my brother would agree. Wouldn’t you, brother? Brother?

                Blast. He has disappeared on me yet again. This is becoming rote. I’m going to have to find him and bring him home, like I find myself doing so often these days.

                Off I go, I suppose. To the park, most likely, or the playground behind the school. Who knows where he has gone?
