Wi's super wee

by Louise McNaught

He yearned for something Big. The most unfortunate student,
Wi always had an immeasurable sheet of problems instead of
a supper…

“Super job”, - he cheered himself, bending a clay pebble in 
the pocket of his jumpsuit.

This morning waking early Wi felt somewhat not safe. Jumping 
over the flight of stairs, he was at school in a wee.

The fireplace, a cozy spot for occasional seclusions, looked 
different. The flames, having gorged wooden board, crept up
to the base of a fireplace.. The front part was already eroded…

“…and nobody see it!” – “And you?” – the thoughts have 
evaporated…
Wi turned the neck for possible help. Behind the locked glass door 
he noticed the clerk, entering the office.
Heat’s reached its highest!..

-         Pphh! ……………………. - Pkshl tchss…

Still staring thru the door with raised arm, he noticed inky traces
on the face of approaching clerk…
