Dee stared at the packed shelves, wondering how anyone was ever expected to choose from such a staggering array. He’d thought there was a wide choice at the supermarket, but it was nothing compared to this organic fruit and vegetable market. He’d already counted twenty varieties of apple, and half the things on display he couldn’t identify.

“Sharon fruit? There’s a fruit named after a girl?”

Ryo laughed at Dee’s astonishment. “They’re a kind of persimmon, almost seedless. Want to try some?”

“Sure, why not? I’ll try anything once.”

Putting a few of the fruits in a bag, Ryo added them to his shopping cart with the blueberries, raspberries, oranges, several ears of corn, and a bag of cherry tomatoes. “What’s your favourite fruit?” he asked Dee, starting to fill a bag with cherries.

“Hmmm.” Dee considered the question. “Peaches I guess. But I think apricots are the prettiest,” he added, spotting some on display.

“Why d’you say that?” Ryo asked, looking at Dee curiously.

Dee shrugged. “Dunno. Just, the colour I guess, all warm and golden. They’re like little blobs of concentrated sunshine.”

Ryo couldn’t help but smile at the almost poetic description. He knew exactly what Dee meant.

The End


Apricots are my favorite and that is a perfect description of why.
I'm hoping to get some more tomorrow - already had three lots this year, they've been wonderful =D

Thank you!
I can see Dee going into brainlock over 20 different apples. Ha ha!
He had no idea there were so many! He thought y'know, green apples, red apples, yellowish apples, cooking apples... Four kinds. ;)

Thank you!
