Tied Together With A Smile

Mamie's tea cup grew cold in her hands as she stared out the window, lost in her thoughts.

When a knock came at the door, Mamie started. She placed her cup of cold tea on the table and walked over to the door to answer it.

“Why hello Tom,” she said with her usual cheery smile. “Whatever brings you here at this time of night?”

“I thought you might feel lonely in the house by yourself and I decided to come over to give you some company.” Tom shuffled his feet a bit and failed to look Mamie in the eye.

Smiling that knowing smile everyone has, Mamie said, “You know what? I am feeling lonely without my children. Company would be very welcome, won't you come in?”

Tom smiled and walked into the small cottage, allowing Mamie to shut the door.

“Would you like some tea?”

Tom nodded.

Mamie kept a close watch on Tom's face as she poured him a cup of tea. “Now, Tom, why don't you tell me the true reason you are here.”
