Silence

Every morning, before the sun rose into the sky, Wilfred would go out into the garden to have a pot of tea.

The only people around were the guards who patrolled the perimeter of the garden and they didn't make any sound. Wilfred was the only one who made any sound in his garden.

There were no birds singing. The wind seldom blew. There were no squirrels or cats or any other animals running through the bushes.

Every morning, Wilfred was alone in the silence, just the way he liked it.
