Let Us Have Cake

Cafe Writing - Option One - Fiction
The Queen said, “Oh!” And went to His Majesty: “Talking of the butter for The Royal slice of bread, Many people Think that Marmalade Is nicer. Would you like to try a little Marmalade Instead?”
~A. A. Milne, “The King’s Breakfast”

Using the above quotation as your inspiration, write a flash-fic, scene, or short story involving breakfast.

Let Us Have Cake

Time to eat
It's breakfast time
"No, you can't have chocolate cake"
I say in my sternest mother voice
The whines, the cries, the very fake pouting
Will not change my mind
Oh, please be good
Or at least be quiet
I can't stand to see you unhappy
I stop and think
Will it matter in 10 years
"Okay, let us both have cake"
