June drabbles - 2

“Two, four, six, eight; who do we appreciate?”

“United” was the answer you were meant to shout. United; they’d appreciate united.

Then “One, two, three and a quarter; who do we want to slaughter?”

The answer to that one was “City.”

United wore red, and City wore blue—ManU the good guys; City ever bad, or so she thought.

The trouble was, they're just words; she never understood which one was which. One Catholic team, one Protestant; one appreciated, the other one set for slaughter.

“Two, four, six, eight...”

“What comes next little sister?”

Oh brother, how Lizzy hated eight.
