A class performance

“Next up is class 12B!” Parents stand up to cheer, the class hurrying onto the stage.  After a moments pause, the teacher counts them in, the soft hum of the piano slowly drifting them into the beat. All the children sing, little bodies swaying as they bellow out the words they had practised for weeks…

Do not touch a students pile of dishes

“Anna shall I wash yours up too?” Kim bellowed from the kitchen. “My what?” Anna screamed back. “I’m doing the dishes!” Kim heard a large thud as if her flatmate had fallen out of her bed still wrapped in her duvet, then, a rustling as she belted it down the stairs. “No!” Anna screamed, messy hair…

The wafting smell of baked goods

“Just leave it on the side Cas,” her husband said. “Okay, do you think it’s high enough out of reach?” Cas replied, placing the warm cookies on the counter. “There is no way she can reach that high,” Jack replied as the two moved into the lounge to finish their movie.

A relationship status

The toothbrush stage. “Is it time?” He asks, staring down the cup holding her toothbrush and a half used squished bottle of toothpaste. “I think so,” she whispers. She shakes the cup, leaving a little more room to one side. “Here I go,” he says, carefully placing his freshly bought toothbrush next to hers. “It…

A real understanding of student life

“It is so cold,” Sam says, shivering under the three duvets layered on top of them. “I know,” Chloe replies. “That is it!” Rose screams, emerging from the duvet fortress and into the sub zero temperatures of the lounge. “I’m turning the heating on!” “No!” The other two scream in unison. “Just this once!” Rose…
