A Test To Pass





"Melt butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat," she repeated, slowly.

Mrs. Morgan sighed. There was no way she could grant passing marks to Katherine in the Culinary Test this semester.

"I already heard that twice my girl. What next? What do you do after melting the butter to prepare this dish that you have been asked for?"

Katherine knew there was no way she could answer that. She made an attempt to recollect the recipe from her memory, but nothing fruitful came to her mind. She didn't love cooking, but she had to pass the subject.

A silent flood welled up inside those crystal eyes of hers.



This 109 Words Micro-Fiction is shared with Saturday Centus - Week 157.

  5. Let's re-label this throw-back micro-fiction since they no longer offer home-economics at most schools, a fact for which I am bitter and a fact for which your heroine would rejoice in. Nice writing. :-)

  11. This sounds like me in high school.

    Who knew I would go on to become a champion butter melter!?!

    Clever take on the prompt.
