marshmellowsWhen We Ate Marshmallows

When Buck finally found me, I was playing Roulette and eating marshmallows from a bag. Sometimes,  I’d been dropping a marshmallow into my drink and then sucking it into my mouth like a stuffed olive. The palm trees, outside the casino – and so out of place here – swayed in the cold winter’s wind.

“Sissy,” Buck whispered. “Everyone’s been looking all over for you all day!” He put his arms around my waist. He wasn’t scolding me.

I plopped another marshmallow into my Pina Colada.

Buck kissed my neck. “Miss Scared of Everything standing in a gambling hall playing Roulette?”

I twirled the marshmallow around in my drink and plucked it out with a cocktail umbrella. Just as I was going to put the liquor coated marshmallow into my mouth, Buck said “You’re pretty gross if you eat that.”

The marshmallow was just between my lips. I laughed. It flew from my mouth and onto the spinning roulette wheel.

“I guess I’ll have one of those too,” Buck said as we ran from the casino.
