Rough and Tumble, Chapter 174: Some More

Chapter 174: Some More

Tad was a roaster, patiently turning his stick above glowing embers until they were golden brown and gooey. Zeke mimicked the technique long enough to get pearly strings of marshmallow stuck to everything, then switched to the torch method. Sooty flakes of blackened sugar. Dribbles of melting chocolate. Cracker crumbs galore. Two bags were barely enough. Everyone wanted s’more.
