Sample text:

When she awoke, nothing remained of her sense of frustration. She sat up at the sound of her clock’s soft chime, then stood.

And stood again. And again, and again, and again, until she lost count of herself and her small room became crowded with her… selves… all clad in her identical nightgown.

“What the f–,“ one of her started.

“Heck,” another of her finished.

“Shhh,” another cautioned. “Mom might hear us.”

“Crap.” The first to have spoken sat back down on the edge of the bed. Another grabbed the desk chair. One of those standing grumbled, “This is ridiculous. There’s no room for all of us.”

“I need to go to the bathroom,” one moaned.

“Me too,” they all chorused.


They fell silent, all listening for sounds of their mother stirring.

“Quickly, then, one at a time and quietly,” the one sitting at the desk hissed. Before she finished speaking, the Sally nearest the bedroom door nipped out.

“Mom will be up any minute and expect me – or one of me – us? – to go to church with her,” Sally-on-the-bed pointed out.

“I’ll go to church if I can get the bathroom next,” Sally-at-the-desk said.

There were a few moans and grumbles, but the rest agreed. The Sally who’d gone out returned and took the chair while this next Sally left.
