The Language of Candy
A large rock split open the small oblong shell. Inside was a tiny white nut. My cousin tapped me and waved around a tin cup. I put my nut in with the others. I searched the ground for more and smashed them open. When the tin cup was full we ran to the house. Giving the cup to Nonno he threw them in a hot skillet and worked magic. My cousins chittered excitedly in a language I couldn’t comprehend. Visiting my father’s homeland for the first time was exciting. When the brittle was done, we all smiled the same.
