Short Story: The Cheesecake
Genre: slice of life
Savor: taste (good food or drink) and enjoy it to the full.
Deep, red strawberries. Pure white cream. Beautifully golden body. The cheesecake was picture worthy just as it was.
The fork dug easily into the cake all the way through the biscuit base. One bite, and it was gone. The cheese melted easily on the tongue, refreshingly sour from the lemon but also light from the cream, topped with the crunch from the delightfully creamy base.
The next mouthful had the strawberry. Its sweet-sourness mingled with the rest of the cake for a flavour party in the mouth.
A third scoop picked up the rest of the little piece of heaven. It disappeared way too quickly, like frost in the sun, leaving only its sweet-sour memory behind.
The now empty plate joined the stack of three others.
