Piece of cake #AtoZChallenge

Katy had been dreaming of sweet things, chocolate, cookies, and cake, she hadn’t thought giving up would be hard. First came the cravings, followed by headaches and intense mood swings from depriving her body of processed sugar. Now she was finding concentrating difficult, the simplest task became a gargantuan effort.

She was currently staring at her laptop wondering why it wasn’t doing what she wanted. When Jason walked past he asked what the problem was and when she explained he said,

“Oh right, well here piece of…”

“DON’T YOU SAY IT!” exploded from her mouth before she could stop herself.


As part of the AtoZ challenge I am writing flash fiction of no more than 100 words. Today’s prompt was…

Piece of cake

    1. Oh No!! You’ll have to get someone to make you some dairy free treats to make up for it! I’ve tried to give up sweet things to be more healthy but Easter hasn’t done me any favours. 🙂
