Notes: For primeval100: challenge 251: Sticks and stones



Sticks and stones


At school they’d called him a nerd or a geek, teasing him relentlessly. At University, he’d found like-minded people in Tom and Duncan, but that didn’t stop the occasional taunt from his classmates.

His mother told him the old saying, ‘Sticks and stones may break my bones but names can never hurt me’ but, funnily enough, it didn’t help.

Connor saw one of his tormentors from school some years later, working on one of the checkouts at the supermarket and looking thoroughly miserable at his job.

Connor smiled; he chased dinosaurs for a living. Sometimes he loved being a geek.
