‘It’s winter here in the UK and we need comfort!’ Tea, coffee, hot chocolate or . . .
Quite right Julia we do. Here is my response to her prompt.
‘Tea, coffee, hot chocolate or?’ these few words uttered by the softest voice were a pleasure to his ears. He chose hot chocolate.
‘Milk, dark, white, with marshmallows, cream on top?’
He frowned, ‘Just dark please.’
‘Mint, mocha?’ he was getting irritated, since when did a hot drink become so complicated?
‘No thanks,’ he sank into an armchair to wait.
She called across, ‘Spice? Ginger, chilli?
His mind whirled, spice? hang on, I remember now. . .
‘Don’t suppose you’d have cardamom?’
She gave him the thumbs up, ‘Two minutes.’
The rich, fragrant liquid permeated his senses and he relaxed.
Ahh, now I’m home.
