Short Story: The Giant Rock

Genre: slice of life


In her primary school, there was a small garden dominated by a massive rock. It was a popular place to go during recess. Students of all grades would clamber up the rock just to stand on it and pretend to be a giant.

Five years after she graduated, she was back to visit her teachers when she passed the giant rock. Class was still in progress, so the rock was completely kid-free.

She approached the rock, touching the rough surface she had climbed so many times in the past. With a light hop, she sat on it. Already, she was almost the same height she was when she first climbed the rock.

She took a quick look around. There was no one to stop her. With a grin, she stood to her full height on the rock.

This was how a true giant was like.

Then she quickly jumped down and walked away before anyone caught her.



Fun fact: The small garden with the massive rock in this story did exist in my primary school. Fun times.
