Man and Superwoman (Writing Challenge Day 15)

MAN

(as MAN)

Everytime I look in the mirror I see you.

(as SUPERWOMAN)

Try glasses.

(as MAN)

You’ve always been sardonic.

(as SUPERWOMAN)

I try. You’ve always liked sassy girls.

(as MAN)

Why can’t you get out more often?

(as SUPERWOMAN)

You know why. Man has to come out too.

(as MAN)

But, Superwoman, I live for you!

(as SUPERWOMAN)

Perhaps there’ll come a time when Superwoman would reign. But for now, I lie in shadows.

(as MAN)

That’s not fair. You should get out.

(as SUPERWOMAN)

Not now with all the hatred, Man.

(as MAN)

When will the world get to know you?

(as SUPERWOMAN)

When Man becomes Superwoman we’ll see. For now, be the best man you can be.

(as MAN)

Even for now, even for a while?

(as SUPERWOMAN)

Alright, I’ll grant that. For a while, dear Man. For tonight. Tomorrow you’re Man.

(as MAN)

You want the stilletos?

(as SUPERWOMAN)

Superwoman would demand nothing less.

 

SUPERWOMAN puts on her stilletos and goes out to party.
