365 Days Writing Prompt Challenge: Day 348

348. Night Owl:

Everyone in his family was a night owl. 

Except for him. 

That wouldn’t have been a problem usually…

Except he WAS an owl. 

And owls were supposed to be nocturnal. 

His mum worried that something was wrong with him. 

His father worried that he would never find a job… Or a suitable partner. 

His brothers and sisters worried that people would think they were weird.

But he didn’t worry. He was just himself. He didn’t know how to be anyone else. 

So he just embraced the contradiction and went about life his own way. 

He might not have been a night owl. 

But he was a very wise owl. 

And that was far more important than anything else.
