Lime Ones - Michael O'Brien

‘I got a lime one.’ A says.

She is referring to the fox’s glaciers we are eating. She likes lime flavour. She is happy she didn’t get ‘another blackcurrant one’. I really like blackcurrant flavour. I don’t tell her this because I don’t want to seem contrary and I’m enjoying the afternoon in the park.

‘Nice.’ I reply.
