A drabble is a short work of fiction of precisely one hundred words in length. Please stick around for 30 seconds and let me know you were here.

“Isn’t human nature just divine?” Avery asks her students.

“Can you please explain Miss?”

Avery points to a boy in the back row. “Simon, I love your uniqueness. You wear your hair long when it’s frowned upon by others.”

She points to a girl in the far corner. “Willow, I adore your shyness, it highlights you’re a deep thinker.”

Glancing at two girls in the front row. “Pinna and Linda, your loyalty towards each other fills me with pride.”

Avery smiles at each student. “It’s not how you look that’s important, but the size of your warm and loving heart.”

If you like this Drabble, you would love my latest book, published on 30 May 2024.
