My Mother's Cooking by Claire

My mom is going to make cookies.
She walks into the kitchen and
She stubbed her toe on the table again.
She puts the bowl down on the counter
and starts to mix the ingredients.
She burned her finger--again--on the stove
while putting them into the oven.
30 minutes pass, and
they are done.

Author's Bio: Claire lives with her mother (another Flash Fire 500 contributor) in a less-than-tidy suburban home. She runs the 800 meter for her middle school track team and sprints from her crazy kid brother. Besides writing, Claire enjoys drawing and text-messaging her friends. This is her first published piece.
