The bowl of cherries stood in the centre of the table, each fruit almost glowing with ripe, juicy sweetness.

Eldarion eyed the fruit longingly. He had been told not to eat them, but they looked so tasty! How could he resist?

“Surely no one would miss just one?” the little boy asked himself.

Soon the bowl was filled only with stones while Eldarion’s fingers and mouth were crimson with the juice of the forbidden fruit.

“Eldarion!” cried his mother accusingly. “Those cherries were meant for us all to share for dessert.”

Eldarion’s face turned as red as the purloined cherries.
