CW: Delectable Treats.

Crouching behind a bush, Oscar looked at his watch – 10.55. With anticipation, he peered around the corner. Five more minutes and delicious chicken nuggets and fries would be his.

Like clockwork – at 11 – Alexa came out the back door and whistled.

“I heard today is your birthday.” She handed Oscar a bigger-than-usual brown bag.

Aside from the weekly staples, the bag also contained a slice of chocolate cake.

Oscar smiled at the thought of the joy he would see in his little sister’s eyes. “Best gift ever.”

Church food was good, but this was going to be A FEAST!
