Short Story: To Go or Not to Go

Genre: slice of life


There was a festival in the city.

There were also three young cousins under her care.

“We’ll be back before anyone knows you left,” her friends said.

She wanted to go, but she couldn’t disobey her family and leave the kids alone, even if they were already asleep.

“Sorry. Maybe next time.”

“We’ll get you something nice,” they promised as they left.

The next day, she found her friends in the hospital, each crippled in some way because of a drunk driver who smashed into their car.
