Drabble: Rights of the Minority

Rights of the Minority

“Excuzzzzze me?”

I snap awake from a shallow half sleep. Did someone say something?

“I zzzzzzaid, excuzzzzzze me.”

“Who’s there?”

“Juzzzzzzt me.”

A small fly flitts around my head, aligting on my earlobe.

“Okay, this must be a dream.”

“How often do you zzzzzzzay that in dreams?”


“Try to wake yourzzzzzzzzelf up.”

I couldn’t.

“Zzzzzzat’s what I thought.”

“What do you want?”

“Well, we’ve been thinking. We’ve heard of your ‘democrazzzzzzy.’ The idea intrigues us.”


“We want you out of the apartment. We do outnumber you, by a factor of thousands.”

“That’s true,” I say, before slapping, hard.
