Coffee

 


She took a sip and smiled. “Nice coffee”, she said.

I smiled back.

“The arsenic enhanced the flavour”, I thought as she took the last sip.

    1. For a Ruskin Bond fan, always arsenic. :)

      One tale because I guess I was lazy to come up with more. :(

  3. Good....but not good enough. U can do better. This is cliched. Even i worked on a similar line in a "55 word story" a couple of years back- "I hate teas and coffees".

    But writing-wise, you have been flawless.
