"Clarice! are you ready?" inquired Dad as he stepped into the house after a grueling day at work.
He was quick to walk towards her and find his preteen daughter lazing on the couch with a partially opened book on her chest.
"What happened? I thought you were keen to go to this concert?"
"My friends refuse to come. I'm not the popular girl whose likes are supported by friends," she said in a sulky voice as tears dripped down her chubby cheeks.
There was a brief pause.
Then Dad proposed, "How about we make it OUR night."
Write a story about Clarice. She can be any Clarice real, historical, or imagined. What story does she have for you to tell? Go where she may lead!
