Candice, else known as Candida, lowers her head to the rim of the glass. It holds the last champagne. She insisted, as always, on a clean glass, the table wiped.

The Mister, else known as The Mistral, has been and gone not leaving a trace. Not a scent. Not even. No evidence of his having been (with her). Ever.

morning will

break

soon

  1. There’s a whole novel in this short glimpse, or a 1940s film. I enjoyed this, you shape the phrases so well.

    Reminds me of a book I read where the guy in power had his own private ‘call girl’ – who pretty much had to be ready for anything including stimulating conversation… A bird in a gilded cage.
