“Is this enough?” Sweets spilled from Ralph’s arms.

Leona paced the shop. “I think so, Daddy. Maybe one more...”

A bottle of whiskey caught Ralph’s attention. Four months clean. He licked his lips.

“Daddy? We’re done!”

He looked at the sweets. It was too much to throw away.

“Coming, pumpkin.”

This is my entry to the 50 Word Challenge, hosted by @jayna. This week's prompt was Pumpkin.

Wow, that's a lot of sweets. I'm dying to know -- does he go for the bottle or does he manage to maintain his will power?

My bad, I'll be sure to link my next one in the prompt post. And he stays strong for his little girl. She's worth it.
