Short Story: Little Cousins

Genre: family, slice of life


Their little cousins loved his sister. She always played with them and showered them with gifts. At family gatherings, she was the first person they called and the only one they called at the top of their voice with obvious delight.

But she was only human, and as much as she loved her cousins, playing with all of the at once was exhausting. In a rare opportunity where all the cousins were otherwise occupied, she retreated into her room to rest. Their little cousins, however, were soon ready for more.

He cut in before they burst into her room. He wasn’t like his sister, but surely he could entertain them for a short time?

“Who wants to play ‘pop pop’?”
