Shorts/Drabbles

[101] Writing Challenge 1: Long Way


“You’re so fond of showing people shortcuts, why do you take the long road yourself?”

“I learn more.”

“But it takes so much time!”

“If I learn something along the way, it’s worth it!”

“But you waste time and that’s something we don’t have much!”

“Not if I then show someone else the shortcut and others follow. Isn’t that better?”

“Well, if you don’t know how to do something, why don’t you just ask?”

“Haha, I do. Just that I only do that in desperate cases.”

She wouldn’t say she didn’t ask because she hated to be thought as an inconvenience.
