Staring Contest

April 6, 2012
“What are you doing?”

Shelly did not answer; she only continued her unblinking gaze.

“Shelly, what are you doing?” Maria repeated.

Again, no answer from her sister.

Maria opened her mouth to ask a third time when Shelly leaned back with frustration and exclaimed, “He always wins!”

“Who always wins what?” Maria asked the younger girl.

“That deer.” Shelly pointed at a buck mounted on the wall. “He always wins the staring contest!”
