Part of the Moss series and follows on from Advent
Moss let out a miserable whimper and curled up under Becker’s desk. He’d already thrown up once, much to Lester’s disgust as he happened to be walking past at the time.
“Poor thing,” Becker said, not knowing what to do to make him feel better.
“It’s his own fault for eating an advent calendar,” Matt pointed out. “That much cardboard is not good for him.”
“He didn’t eat it all.”
“No, just most of it. Hils, he’ll be fine,” Matt assured him. “Just be thankful that Jess had already eaten most of the chocolate or he would have felt worse.”
Jess picked up the wrapped parcel on her desk, tearing the paper off as quickly as she could. Deluxe Chocolate truffle advent calendar. She resisted the urge to jump up and down and clap her hands with glee. She loved chocolate truffles. Well, any sort of chocolate, but truffles… Becker knew her too well.
She hurried off to thank Becker and to check on Moss. As annoyed as she was with the cub, she still felt sorry for him – the poor thing looked so miserable.
And then chocolate. After all, there were 17 days of chocolates to catch up on.
