The Secret Ingredient (micro fiction)

The Secret Ingredient

“These cupcakes are delicious! I’ve eaten six already!”

“Help yourself.”

“I will! They’re wonderfully citrus flavoured. What’s your secret you saucy minx?”

“I use lemon zest, and there’s also a surprisingly large amount of arsenic in them, but that’s tasteless. Enjoy!”

Joanne Fisher

This was written with the prompt zest provided by Sammi Cox’s Weekend Writing Prompt #262.

This was inspired by Greg’s Blog’s Tea Time Secrets (though mine’s nastier).
