New #shortstory: WHY ALWAYS CHOCOLATE, MOM? @vocal_creators

It's Story Time!

Ciao, amici! Las time, I told you Vocal is running an eight-stories-in-eight-weeks challenge and I hoped to do all eight. Well, I’m two for two so far.

Once again, a quick reminder: The entries are judged by a qualified panel, but if there’s a tie, votes are the tie-breaker, so if you click the [♡] button, you might be doing me a favor.

This week’s theme had to do with chocolate cake. If you’re interested in reading my take on the prompt (Why Always Chocolate, Mom?), you can find it here.

And if you missed any of my stories and would like to read them, you can check out my full Vocal library here.

As always, I appreciate the support, and if you read the story, I hope you enjoy it. Grazie!

  1. When I read the title, my immediate response was “Because there is no other flavor – unless it peanut butter.” Loved the story, Staci – sweet on so many levels. Sorry – couldn’t resist that one.

  2. Wow! You hit a major home run with that one, Staci. I could read that story every New Year’s Eve (or any day) and never tire of it. Bravo. Of course, I gave it the proper love ❤
