The sweetest jam is shared jam.


“I love you,” Labake said, smiling sweetly at Ajoke.

“Uh uh… you always say that. Why don’t you show me instead,” Ajoke said offhandedly as she opened a bowl of cherries.

“Here,” Labake offered a jar of orange jam to Ajoke, “I give you the yummiest jam on earth.”

Ajoke rolled her eyes and smiled, “errmmm, who says so? Have you tasted all the jams in the world?”

Labake shook her head in mock exasperation, “have I ever shared my food with you?” She asked.


“Do I love my food?”


“Is orange jam my favourite?”
