Slap on the Wrist

Cynthia had made a habit of sneaking cookies out of the jar when Mom left the room.

One day, Mom caught her, and Cynthia received a crisp slap on the wrist.

The next afternoon, Cynthia emerged from her bedroom with foam padding taped to her wrists, and took a cookie.

This story was based on the prompt “slap on the wrist” at TypeTrigger.
