Drabble: An Offer Taken
Genre: general, slice of life
~An Offer Taken~
“Need anything?” she asked her brother’s door on her way downstairs.
“Actually, can you give me a hand?” her brother replied from the other side.
“Ok.” At least she asked… Wait. He actually wanted her help this time.
Her hands hovered before the door. Her brother hadn’t accepted her offers to help before. What now?
“Come in. The door isn’t locked,” her brother said.
She grabbed the handle and pushed. The door swung open.
Inside his bedroom, her brother sat cross-legged on the floor, surrounded by puzzle pieces of all shapes and sizes.
“Hold these for me.” He pointed his chin at the two larger chunks he had assembled halfway in his hands.
She sat down and took the pieces. “Like this?”
“Yes.” Her brother rose and walked over to his cupboard. He grabbed a small tube off the top shelf and returned to his spot.
She didn’t talk to a wall this time.
A smile curled her lips.
She was glad she kept asking.
