Tears of calm


Her calm demeanour startled him.

“Are you alright?” he asked alarmingly.

She looked at him, but tears blinded her.

“I hope I misread it.” she hoped.

“What’s done is done, dear.” he said.

She wished she could travel in time and turn it around.

Or, read the newspapers in time for a flat 50% sale.
