‘Rex said I was fat!’ exclaimed Alice, ‘…am I fat, Jojo?’ she implored her sister
‘Yes you are.’ replied Jojo, as she flexed her limbs
‘And you’re mean!’ exclaimed Alice, again.
Jojo shrugged nonchalantly, as she looked into the distance
‘Look at Tina there,’ pointed Alice, ‘and look at Rex looking at her! Do you think he likes Tina?’
Jojo turned to look and made a face, ‘How does it matter?’
‘I think he does. And he likes her because she’s thin!’ spat out Alice, even as she started flexing her limbs.
‘If only you concentrated more on what you are supposed to do…’ Jojo started a slow jog on the spot.
‘And what is that supposed to mean, missy?!’ asked Alice, even as she started jogging.
‘That means practice, practice, practice, so hard that you don’t even notice Tom has eyes only for you!’ Jojo increased her speed and then started rushing forward.
‘Why you! Really? Truly?’ asked Alice, blushing and speeding towards her sister.
‘Yes! Truly! Now race you, FATSO!’ grinned Jojo as she gathered momentum, and both the waves rushed gracefully to meet the shore.

  1. Now that's a fun story … a wonderful perspective too. Didn't expect them to be waves 🙂

  2. Aha, that was masterful! I thought it was two teen sisters in conversation! Yep, Goa does get you in that dreamy frame, doesn't it?!

  3. Aw that's so sweet. I love the idea of chatty waves.

  4. Fun to read the story of waves …..

  5. This was very ingenious of you! I agree with Kala,here. I thought it was a conversation between two sisters. Goa has that affect on you. Doesn't it?

  6. Good luck #myfriendAlexa

  7. OMG, I wish I was the Tina from this story. In fact I was, untill I started staying alone and away from family and completely depended on restaurant food for a few yrs! But nice story here.

  9. That was awesome!! I never thought it was a conversation between the waves.
