I’m wondering what your tale as the sidekick would be like? Not necessarily the sidekick’s origin story (as in, how do they react when they find out?) but rather the daily life/struggles/victories of the hero’s sidekick if it makes sense.
I wait in the wings while they take the center stage
All the spotlight focused on them, their actions
Silently I do all background work while someone else is praised
It hard to be that invisible hand that supports without acknowledgment
But I know that they are the real heroes
And I am just the supporting cast
I do the stuff that’s not deemed important
Yet without which the story isn’t complete
I have written from the perspective of aides, nurses, secretaries, and of course moms. Their contributions are often pushed to the sidelines while the main players get the spotlight.
