A Cup Of Tea Makes Everything Better

by Andrew Atkinson
Originally published by on 03/03/2018

Penny put the kettle on for afternoon tea. She put out two cups and two biscuits – never more, never less. It was all part of the routine, though she longed for change. Gerald had his garden and Penny her reading and writing, particularly drabbles.

Looking out of the window, Penny took in the orderliness of the formal garden. Only one thing broke up the oppressive neatness of it all: Gerald lay on the lawn, his hands clasped to his chest.

Penny turned away and replaced one of the teacups in the cupboard. But she’d have both of the biscuits herself.
