The tea leaves told the story - 100 Word Story



She watched him sleeping soundly, wondering whether to wake him up. She decided to let him sleep till she had her tea. 

As she entered the kitchen, the mess made her smile exasperatedly. She had left the kitchen spic and span last night. There was a pile of used tea leaves in a bowl near the sink. 

The tea leaves told her the story of her son’s late night . He gets to sleep undisturbed for a few more hours, she decided.

    1. My mother would do so early in the morning, if needed. But late night tea and coffee, I would manage on my own...
      But they are such beautiful memories, Corinne, aren't they?

    1. And I think a mother can only smile at the mess that is made by her kids, not at any other mess :)

    1. Thanks, Sulekkha. It is true, we do miss the kids when they go to hostel. On the other hand, they do need to learn to fly on their own...
