September drabbles - 15

“Wake up!” Jessie aimed a kick at her sleeping sister. Cassie groaned.

“Time for work,” said Emma, tossing cold water on Cassie's face. Cassie whimpered and groaned.

“They’re leaving,” said Mom and Dad, and Cassie was silent.

Five minutes later Jessie and Emma strolled in through the factory gate. “Your sister beat you,” said Tom, the security guard.

“Thought she was asleep.”

“Well, her eyes were still closed. But she beat you anyway.”

Inside, Cassie sorted through aircraft parts with skillful hand and blank face. If you listened closely enough you could hear her snore.

“Wish we could do that.”
