48/100 Days of Creativity: Maui: The Prequel

Once upon a time in a faraway land there lived a boy called Maui.
Maui lived with his mother and five older brothers in a small house in the city.
Maui’s mother worked all day and didn’t get home until late at night.
Maui’s brothers thought Maui was a nuisance and ignored him.
So Maui sits all day troon.

He watches Dragon Ball Z and imagines living forever.
He watches Ben 10 and imagines finding an Omnitrix.
He watches Dora the Explorer even though he hates Dora.

Tomorrow, he thinks he’ll switch the TV off and go to see his grandmother.


For 100 consecutive days I will write and post a short story (about 100 words) incorporating a randomly selected word from Afterliff: A new dictionary of things there should be words for.

Today’s word:
troon adj.
Not quite bored enough to switch off the television.

Tomorrow’s word:
beausemblant n.
One who expects to be understood in France if he speaks English with a French accent.
