Five Sentence Fiction Friday - Candy

Welcome one and all to a very special Five Sentence Fiction Friday. This week's prompt on Lillie McFerrin's Website (click the link to find out how you can join in the fun) is Candy. Now, anyone who knows me, knows that I could write about candy all day long. It's one of my truest loves. So I was very excited to have a crack at it for Five Sentence Fiction. Below is my take. I hope you enjoy it!

Ooey, gooey toffee, soft, fluffy marshmallow and crisp, fresh peppermint; my hands were undiscerning as they pulled and tugged at the charming candy house. The angry rumble of my stomach quieted as I filled it with treats, licking my fingertips as I reached out for more.
"Poor, hungry child, come inside where the best candies are."
The wrinkled old woman stuck her white feathered head out the window, waving me inside. Still hungry, I did as I was told, despite the echoes in my head telling me I should never take candy from strangers.

So, what do you think? Did I make you hungry? I hope so, cause every time I think of soft, fluffy marchmallows my mouth waters. If you'd like to read my other attempts at Five Sentence Fiction, just follow the links below. You are more than welcome to follow this blog, as well as myself on twitter @MelanieKCole. Have a great weekend everyone!
