Cinnamon and Chili Peppers This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.


   I once knew a very strange girl. She reminded meof chili peppers because she was very hot. Looking at her made sweatbeads roll down my face as if I was eating red-hot chilipeppers.

This girl was also very oregano because she was mostlyItalian and her dad was in the Mafia. There was a sweetness about her,though, that somehow made her complete. The cinnamon side of her madeher easy to talk to and open-minded. There's something about cinnamon Ican't resist.

Cinnamon and chili peppers: these two spices willalways make me think of that girl who was incredibly hot yet sweet andopen. She made me feel more alive than ever.
