- Stoop Kid -
It was an early afternoon in fall and I was stepping down my building’s stairs to start my day. Without paying much mind, I placed one foot where the sidewalk once was only to feel water. Startled, I glanced down to see a stormy, deep ocean surrounding the apartment lined street.
I tiptoed up a few steps, my floral skirt blowing in the stormy wind. As I overlooked the sight before me, I catch a glimpse of the sea monsters and deep sea life below the clear navy surface. Afraid to leave the safety of the stoop, I watched, wondering how long I would be trapped. I watched the sea monsters glide through the water like razors for all of five minutes. That's all it took for me to lose interest. Rolling my eyes, and shaking from the cold air, I turned around and went back up the steps to watch Netflix.
