Susan Peterson Wisnewski is putting up a writers challenge this week: write a piece of flash fiction using three words – candle, chocolate and scarf, let’s try to keep it to about 100 – 150 words.
A Taste to Remember
A single candle lit the room. She’d be living in darkness from this day forth.
“Are you ready, love?” Gerald’s passionate gaze tamed the butterflies in Gwen’s stomach.
“One last taste, as we agreed,” she answered.
Gerald nodded, placing the chocolate on her waiting tongue.
A Knipschild dark chocolate truffle, the most expensive chocolate in the world, tasted like heaven. But was it memorable enough to last her a thousand years?
As the sweetness slid easily down her throat, she knew she would miss this flavor most of all.
Loosening her scarf, she bared her neck, tilting her head to the side. “Do it.”
The pain passed quickly and, as her old life drained from the two punctures in her neck, the rich chocolaty aftertaste in her mouth turned to bitter ash.
She sighed, wondering if she’d given up too much for eternal life.
