Yes. I can picture this perfectly, Kelly.
The disconnect between parents and child - how very relatable. Great opening line. Can't wait to see where it goes!
This is so good! I love how this piece feels so balanced - and I love the emotion inside it. Well done!
greatnessThis was my childhood, Kelly. I'm floored. This was great.

This is so sad. I wonder if the parents don't realize the disconnect, or if they don't care. I'm afraid it's the latter.
Brings a familiar moment back to the forefront.
A nice beginning. It has gotten me interested.
Sometimes it does happen that a child is very unlike the parents in more ways than seems possible.An interesting take on the prompt Kelly & am so glad to note that there is a story that is taking shape:-)Looking forward to reading it
I read - I thought of what age the 'child' is? In retrospect does it matter? Though in saying that and the child a teenager - then they unfortunately do not attempt to 'fit in' either. Interesting take.
This is great, Kelly.
I felt like this sometimes growing up. It's a pretty bad feeling :/ You captured it well!
I know this feeling all to well. Very good.
oh, poor child
The idea of a stone trying to fit in conveys the hopelessness perfectly. Nice one.
