Lifting Spirits


"I don't think you have the strength to lift it", he says and laughs out loud along with his friends.

"Why, because I'm a girl?", I ask looking at the gang of five people in the gym.

"Because it is a 50 kilo dumbbell, used by weight lifters; and because you are a girl too", he continues to laugh.

I lift it with my index finger and turn to look at their startled faces. Next, I pounce on their leader and suck the blood off his neck, before I could proceed to the others.

This five sentence fiction is written for the topic 'Strength' at Lillie McFerrin Writes.
