Whispering to Be Heard

A Writing Prompt

Them: Why are you whispering?

Me: I want you to hear me.

Them: But you’re whispering! How do you expect to be heard?

Me: You will hear me through my whispers.

Them: If you want to be heard, you have to speak up.

Me: (Slight pause)I’ve spoken up before, yet you always ignored me. Today, I whispered…Now I have your attention.
