A True Leader

A True Leader

A Story by Naomi Bloom
"

A drabble about leadership. A drabble is a flash fiction consisting of 100 words, no more, no less.

"

Suddenly the professor of a philosophy class said something unexpected.


"Since it's so nice out you are allowed to buy some ice cream.  But I need a leader for the group.  Any volunteers?"


"Me!" a young man said, "I'm the strongest."


"Me!" a girl exclaimed, "I'm the prettiest."


"Me!" a boy yelled, "I'm the hungriest."


But the professor ignored them, looking at a quiet girl with her hand up.


"Yes?"


"Well I may not be strong or hungry, but I am the only one here who knows where the ice cream shop is."


The professor chuckled, "Now that's a leader."
