16 min.DK/Short fictionChildren's films

Merle is nine and she's Bro's elder sister, which is a real pain. He's mad about kissing, especially in order to annoy Merle, who feels that all this kiss-kissing is way out of line. Not to mention the way everyone keeps going on about it. As if it was something special . But then a boy of her age moves into a flat on her staircase. A boy who's actually pretty cute, as the tingle in Merle's tummy tells her. The kind of tingle you get if you eat too many chocolate cream frogs.
