Short Story: Child Tickets

Genre: slice of life


They were about to enter the movie theatre when they discovered the complication. Somehow, they had six child tickets instead of six adult tickets.

They were already running late, so Roxana and Max hurried to the customer service desk to sort the tickets out.

Changing the child tickets to adult tickets was a small matter. It didn’t take the customer service assistant long to fix their tickets. With their now valid tickets, they turned their attention to the rest of the group.

Melanie laughed from where she perched on the top of the promotional prop for the movie they were about to watch. Unconcerned by the attention she drew, she egged the others on as they struggled their way up to her.

Roxana and Max turned back to the customer service assistant.

“Those four are with us. Can they use child tickets instead?”
