Velma made tea.
Luscious, high tea; cream tea; good china, clotted cream.
Velma happily rocked the baby.
She sent Susan for a soak in the bathtub.
Baby fell asleep.
Hair up, Susan emerged.
Baby sleeping, high cream tea waited.
She wept with relief.
Velma smiled, “You won’t be all alone as long as I live.”
