Melt

He slipped the small square of chocolate into his mouth and closed his eyes.

The first sensation was the weight, then the solidity of the square as he tested its strenght with his teeth.

He moved the chocolate so that it sat under his tongue. Little streams of chocolate squirming from underneath as he applied gentle pressure.

He rolled the softening square onto the the flat of his tongue and rubbed it against the roof of his mouth, removing the top layer of chocolate and allowing the caramel centre to pour into his mouth.

Taste flooded his mouth, and he let out a soft noise of pleasure as he swallowed the now dissolved treat.

Taking a sip of his hot tea, he took a moment to enjoy the treat he had just consumed before he broke off another piece, and began the ritual again.
