A Brawl

A Brawl

by Elizabeth Challinor

I'm so sorry

What are you going to do?

They whispered

Full of good intentions

I smiled sweetly

Thanked them

For their concern

Assured them

I would be just fine

And watched them

Tip toe away

Once I was sure

I was alone

I threw myself into a brawl

With 26

Of the best friends

I could ever ask for
