Grasping fingers, stained with dirt and ash and filth, wrap around a lemon’s rough skin. She grabs it and runs, melting into the crowd, just another dirty face in ragged clothes. They’ll never notice one missing, she tells herself, and she needs to eat.


This is for Three Line Tales. Thanks to Sonya for running the challenge and to Erol Ahmed for providing the prompt image.

    I feel bad for her. Too bad she couldn’t find a sweeter fruit to eat. Lemon is so bitter.
