Who: Mandy Brocklehurst, Terry Boot
When: Jan 1
Where: Mandy's flat
What: Terry's come to collect that cup of tea Mandy owes him.
Mandy set the kettle to warm as she unceremoniously dumped the tin of various tea biscuits she bought at the market onto a blue ceramic plate. Variety was always best, wasn't it? She pulled the rose tea tin from the cupboard, followed by a few small packets of Earl Grey she kept for guests. Terry said he had preferred it best and since her taste in tea was radically different from his, she'd have an extra cup ready for him if he couldn't stomach the smell of a flower garden permeating his taste buds.
After she set the cups down onto their saucers, she flit to the living room and straightened the various books and magazines scattered on the coffee table; the one by David Thorne sitting precariously on top of the others. She bit her lip and ran through the catalogue of things she needed to have done before Terry arrived when there was a knock on the door.
