The Learner

by Jonathan Hill
Originally published by on 23/09/2012

The night before her test, Edward had visited Margaret in her sleep.

Margaret knew she had a way of frustrating even the most patient soul, and she was generally aware that she was often an object of ridicule. The truth was she had never always been, what some might call, stupid.

Her world had collapsed somewhat when Edward had fallen asleep one night, never to wake again.

Over the forty minute test, she was convinced she felt Edward's hand guiding hers on the wheel and gearstick.

'Congratulations, you've passed.'

Margaret looked up, tears in her eyes.

'I did it.'
