DIRT

by

Dirt is an unfortunate name for anyone, let alone a little girl. Dirt hadn't had any say in the matter, and if she had, her name would have been something more becoming, like Juniper.

Her parents had named her for the freckles scattered across her face. Dirt's female relatives often tried to wipe them off with a washcloth and a dab of soap.

Another oddity was her brown eyes. Her entire family had brightly colored eyes, except for her.

Despite all this, Dirt lived a rather normal life for many years, until a sunny morning two weeks after her birthday.
