14-Year-Old Pediatrician

50-Word Stories (Online) November 2018

I saved my little sister’s life.
She had a bad case
of deadly Arphidarfilus.

Mom was busy in the kitchen.
Dad was, as always, on the road.


I prescribed gumdrops.
(Gumdrops is the only cure.)


Half a century later
she says I’m still her hero.
