Author’s Note: This is unbetaed so any mistakes therein are my own.
Bernd pulled out the packet of white chocolate hot cocoa mix from his secret stash. He put the kettle on and took out his favorite mug and a spoon. Opening the packet, he looked inside; mildly surprised to see it was white. He had had Hello Kitty cocoa before and that was a pinky brown, so he figured this would be something similar. When he poured the mix into his mug, there was the faint scent of marshmallow. Bernd smiled.
After the kettle went off, he poured the water into his mug, leaving room to add milk. When he was finished making it, the contents of his mug looked like milk. Bernd drank some. It tasted more like marshmallows than chocolate, but he didn’t mind. It was white and that was all that mattered. Bernd drank some more and it was not long before he had finished it and was looking for the other packet he had bought. This particular cocoa had all the earmarks of a guilty pleasure and Bernd had a feeling he was going to be indulging in it more often than not. For now, he was just going to sit back and enjoy that second cup.
