Story time

What, over so soon? Seriously?
Things were just getting good!
The twists and undulating promises.
The fore- and aft-shadowing.
What happened to the mouse?
I’ve counted all the beads. Twice.
And there’s still one missing.
A blue one, actually.
Slightly bloodied.
No, it can’t be over.
Not after all that.
I mean, sure.
++We’ve been at this for hours.
++We were up well before the bells.
++We’ve gone over this before.
+++More than once.
++++And it never changes.
But still…so soon? I’m not even sleepy!
Oh, but you are. Aren’t you.
(Notice that’s not a question.)
Why wouldn’t you be? I mean…
++We’ve been at this for hours.
++We were up well before the bells.
++We’ve gone over this before.
+++More than once.
++++And it never changes.
So let’s call it a night.
No. No more.
You need your sleep.

You.
Need.
Your.
Sleep.

Now.

About damn time.
++I mean, good night, girls.
