TLT: Cherries Aside

three line tales week 27 – red cherries

Inma Ibanez

Betsy’s eyes gleamed at the dark chocolate sundae in front her, bathed in warm fudge sauce with puffs of whipped cream and the first thing she did before devouring this dark sweetness, was delicately flick off the cherry on top, even though she liked cherries but she just preferred eating her ice cream this way and was often teased by her friends who said she was probably the only person on the planet who removed this fruity delight.

One evening, sitting in her favourite ice-cream parlour, Betsy carefully put aside the cherry and relaxed with her icy cold treat after a long day at work, when she saw Dave walk in and quickly hid behind the menu in order to avoid her competitive colleague, someone she was always trying to outdo at the workplace.

He sat two tables away with his sundae and she saw him carve out the top of his ice-cream and scoop out the cherry, keeping it aside before taking his first bite and as an involuntary sound escaped her mouth, he looked up and their eyes met and Betsy suddenly found herself blushing; maybe Dave wasn’t so bad after all.

    Cute story. Funny how that happens. I never liked the cherry on top. I think they’re gross – Those candied cherries.
