Reader's Diary #2253 - Harriet: Thoughts

Harriet's "Thoughts" is a humorous, but somewhat thought-provoking, flash fiction story about a school girl who's convinced she's a queen and who may or may not have difficulty making friends because of this. Is she deluded? Is this about self-confidence and a reluctance to settle? Or has she alienated people who she thinks she's above. 

This is one of those cases where the flash format's limitations work in favour of the story. It's richer without having these questions answered.
