Gold – A Short Paragraph Story

I carefully lifted it out of the box and gazed in awe at the perfect yellow gold band .  I held it between my fingers and marveled at it’s texture.  I thought of my hopes and dreams as I slipped it on my finger.  I admired it’s perfect fit as I held my hand out before me.  Quickly, before I could regret it, I popped it in my mouth and swallowed – I just can’t resist a Cheezel!

    1. Oh, you have missed out on a gastronomic sensation Ruth 🙂 They make a lovely CRUNCH, and if you like useless flavourings they are the real deal 🙂

  5. I’ve no idea what a cheezel is, but I’m guessing it’s something like a Hula-Hoop snack we get here in the UK.
    Nice piece of flash fiction, Claudette. You had me.

    1. Cheezel is a cheese flavoured ring, corn based. Lots of numbers for ingredients and a satisfying savoury crunch 🙂
