Fic: Personal Decisions

The hardest period in life is one's twenties. It's a shame because you're your most gorgeous and you're physically in peak condition. But it's actually when you're most insecure and full of self-doubt. When you don't know what's going to happen, it's frightening. Helen Mirren

7s_prompts: Get Your Way

Dani age 10ish and Ben age 5ish.

prompt: 6. I knew you'd see it my way...

"Dani! Dani! Dani! It's moooooooorning!"

Danielle groans and pulls her blanket tighter over her head.

"I want to sleep, Ben."

Her voice is muffled, unperturbed he pokes at the blanket.

"But, Dani..."

"It's the weekend. I get to sleep on the weekends."

You try being a fourth grader with super powers. It is seriously tiring.

"But I'm having a rough day today."

Dani pulls the blanket down just enough to peek out. Ben is jutting a full on pout. Not so fast, bub.

"The day hasn't even started!"

The faux pout falls to actual disappointment.

"Oh." He considers a moment and pouts again. "I'm having a rough day tomorrow."

Dani rolls her eyes. "Tomorrow is the future! It hasn't even happened!"

"When is it gonna happen?"


Ben crosses his arms. "Will you get up then? I'm lonely."

Dani sighs as dramatically as she can muster -- the brat can't be the only drama queen! -- but throws back the blanket once and for all as she sits up.

"Aaaaarrrrrgggh. Fine. Fine! I'm up. What do you want to do?"

Ben grins his entirely too winning grin. It's not fair he's so adorable. "Sooooooorrrryyyyy!"

Dani knows what is coming and by GOD is she tired of it. "Okay, but--"

"Spiiiiiiiiiderman Sooooooooooooorrrrrrryyyyyy!"

Dani glares. Ben grins and pouts and grins, undecided which is going to work.

"You are so lucky you're cute, kid."
