Last week, my younger one took part in his school's Sports' Day. Despite being a very fast runner, he stumbled a bit and was one of the last to finish. He didn't seem to mind too much, but his brother kept asking him why he hadn't come first.
The older one is now practicing for his Sports' Day. When I asked him if he was going to come first, he instantly replied "I don't know. The other children can run really fast."
His competitiveness is only as far as the bother is concerned- it doesn't seem to extend to himself.

Drabble (n) - an extremely short work exactly one hundred words in length. The purpose of the drabble is brevity and to test the author's ability to express interesting and meaningful ideas in an extremely confined space.
