A Drabble for DragonFluff


Marjory drifts into the sunny kitchen, wincing in the bright summer sun. The dogs chase birds in the yard; the kids still snoozing away their summer freedom. The buzzing of the cicadas serves to amplify the precious quiet. A lazy peace surrounds her as she prepares the morning repast. The scent of fresh gingerbread will serve nicely to wake the kids.

Thick, black, essential sweetness. Stir, bake; face the day.
