Summary: Bernd and Amber enjoy some MoonPies...
Author’s Note: Thanks to Kat for pinking this for me.

Bernd opened the plastic wrapper and bit into his treat. He savored the taste of chocolate mixing with the marshmallow and graham cracker as he slowly chewed. It was one of the few things that weren’t what he referred to as “white food” that he liked to eat. Bernd swallowed and let out a soft “mmmm…” He bit into the MoonPie again, relishing the taste. He reached for the glass of milk in front of him and drank some.

“Hey, Bernd. Whatchya doing?” Amber said as she breezed into the kitchen. She walked over to the fridge and poured herself a glass of ice tea.

“Eating a MoonPie.”

Amber walked over to the kitchen table and sat down opposite him. She watched him take another bite, a look of amazement on her face.

“What?” Bernd said when he finished swallowing another bite.

“It’s not white.”

Bernd looked at the remains of his MoonPie. “I know…” He popped it in his mouth and chewed.

“Thought you only ate ‘white food’,” Amber teased.

Bernd drank some milk. “MoonPies are the exception.”


He nodded. “They’re really good and besides, the inside’s white.”

Amber laughed. “I know. So… mind if I join you?” She got up to get herself a MoonPie from the box on the counter.

“Nope, as long as you bring me another one,” Bernd smirked. A MoonPie flew across the kitchen to hit him in the head. “Hey!” He picked it up off the table, where it had landed, and opened the package. He bit into it.

“Sorry, I thought you wanted it faster than I could walk it over here.” Amber sat down again. She opened her MoonPie and took a bite. “Mmmm… These are good.”

“Yeah…” Bernd ate another bite, washing it down with his milk.

“I just never knew you ate them.”

“You’ve seen me eat them before, like all the time when we were kids.”

“Bernd honey, those were vanilla MoonPies, these are chocolate.”

He looked at the MoonPie, before taking another bite. “Fair enough,” he said around a mouthful of the confection.

Amber smiled and shook her head at him. The silly, annoying boy she had known had grown into a silly, annoying man, and yet, when she thought about it, she would not have it any other way. Those same quirks that used to irritate her now endeared him to her. Besides, it was good to see him happy and enjoying himself for a change. If all it took was seeing that he took his medication and a couple of MoonPies, she would buy him a box next time she was at the store. For now, she was just going to savor the moment along with the MoonPie, along with him…

Love this! The gentleness and the non-drama, with no past intruding on present time (for the most part) - just the Zen art of loving on the most-wonderful MoonPie! :D Being from the South, MoonPies are a beloved childhood memory for me too! Love me a good ol' fashioned MoonPie - I never knew they came in other flavors than chocolate until I moved to Ohio! Mallomars are a close but adult second love in the marshmallow-cookie-treat category... :D

Amber is quite wise to let the MoonPie be just a MoonPie and enjoy the moment of no-thing-ness between her and her man while it lasts. Very fun in a meditation sort of way! I loved it! :D

YAY! I'm glad you do! I LOVE MoonPies & mallowmars. I grew up on mallowmars, MoonPies are an adult treat. :D I only knew about the normal ones & banana, having seen banana ones. The rest I learned from research & their website. ;p

Yeah... It's a nice moment, eh? Especially since he's indulging in something other than "white food." (The PICKY eater!) XD

Thanks!! Glad you did! :D

The only proper beverage to have with a MoonPie is an RC Cola.

Yep, at least according to my granny from Alabama and she'd have known.
