Steve’s Great Idea

‘Aggie.’

Steve knocks again. She likes messing with him. Should he go in? She might be asleep. She hates him coming into her room without permission. She spins out of control when she gets angry.

Steve collapses against the wall. He suggested their parents went away for the weekend.

‘I’m old enough to look after Aggie.’

Is he? It’s not her fault, but she’s hard work.

‘Aggie, enough. I’m coming in.’

She’s in bed. She doesn’t move. He’s supervised her taking her medication. What went wrong?

‘Boo.’

Aggie giggles.

Shouldn’t he be pranking her? Sometimes, Steve hates his older sister.
