After writing this story, all I could think of was eating a candy apple! At the time the story was written, there were no fairs or candy apples to be found. This was written in response to a writing topic I was given. The topic was "Red". Ruby red candy apple red came to mind and I couldn't let it go! With food being one of my favorite things in life, and yes, I do eat dessert first more than I care to admit, this story was easy to write. It was also a great fit for one of my favorite Bible verses!
