Who's Bigger? (short story) by Leanne Dyck

 What I learnt by watching children play...

Two children square off in the playground. 

"I'm bigger," says one.

"No, you're not." The other balances on tiptoes. "I am."

While hoping, "Now, I'm bigger."

While jumping, "Now, I am bigger."

"Now, I am. I am. I am. Me," they chorus as they leap for the sun.

Soon their chorusing is replaced by peals of laughter. Gone is the memory of who is bigger. Still, they jump. Until... They lie exhausted and content on the grass.
