Short Story Assignment #2
The “Sidekick” or “Straight Man”
Write a short piece of fiction 3-5 pages. It may be a complete short story, and/or it may be the beginning of a longer piece. Story must be in the first person from the perspective of a character who is observing a “friend” who is very different from the observer. Ideally the story should reveal as much about the speaker as it reveals about the “friend”.
