I took prompts, and I'll be posting the drabbles as I complete them.

3. alienor77310 prompted me with the drabble title and greed.

Fighting for Chocolate (G; Snermione, OFS; 100 words)

The game wasn't familiar to the eight-year-old: her mother was bent backward over the counter top, her arm, held high while chocolate slid slowly down it—chocolate that her father was busily licking off, bit by bit.

That's a bloody stupid way to play Keep-Away, Merva thought, as her father took one of her mother's fingers into his mouth to suck.

"Oh!"

And there's no chocolate there. . . . Ew.

"I'll have it all, Hermione."

You might at least share, thought Merva in disgust, returning to bed.

Apparently, she didn't need a drink of water as much as her parents did their dessert.

Yesh, absolutely. And he's old and his eyesight is fading so he was being extra careful in case he missed a bit

I think Merva will remember to put a glass of water on her night stand from now on...
