The stress of caring for a loved one for the long term is phenomenal and can have interesting psychological effects. In this short story, we are introduced to Mandee who is overweight, fighting the 'battle of the bulge,' and her charge, Marie, who is severely obese, yet does not care. Mandee is having one heck of a time trying to convince Marie that she doesn't need any more to eat at the moment, all while battling her own demons that push to give in. Throughout their argument, it's perfectly clear that Mandee has issues with guilt for the condition that she and Marie are in, but that weight is the least of her problems. Will Mandee give in to pressure and hand over the goodies, or hold fast and win the battle? And at what cost? An unexpected twist gives all the answers in "Just Desserts."
