I was jealous of Heather because she was tall. She was a preacher’s daughter, a good girl.
When her parents started homeschooling her, I wasn’t jealous anymore.
This tiny story was written for the Sammi Cox Weekend Writing Prompt, Heather. I knew a girl named Heather in elementary school, and I guess this counts as an IRL story because it did mostly happen (though this condensed form conveys none of the nuances regarding what homeschool in America is often about and why it can change the game in a bad way).
