Nana's Maltese Slice by Byron Bell (Highly Commended)

In Nana’s cream-colored kitchen is the bubbling sound of her famous Maltese slice.
The sound of ingredients mashing and smashing.
I hear the sound of lips being licked.
I go in and smell the smell of life.
Nana is not there.
I quickly rub my finger across the chocolate filled bowl and taste it.
12 hours later I taste the legendary sensation that is Nana’s Maltese slice.
