Six-Sentence Sunday (Dec. 16, 2012): How Chocolate Saved a Life

Excerpt from Fur Ball Fever:

Since Grace didn’t trust herself to speak, she stuck two fingers into the frosting, scooping up as much as possible, and popped the mass of goop into her mouth.

Molars tingled, taste buds quivered. When her jaws unlocked, the chocolaty mass melted on her tongue. Eyes closed to savor the bliss, she breathed deeply as a distant choir of angels sang a rhapsody. Ragged nerve endings stretched, unsnarled, relaxed; endorphins pulsed through her system bringing tidings of goodwill; the urge to throttle her aunt faded.

Chalk up another life saved to the velvety magic of chocolate.
