The best way to start your day.

by Anon125

He walks downstairs while I am still setting the table for breakfast. I get a smile and a kiss, and he seats himself.

*Good, he seems happy.*

I put the orange juice and some croissants on the table. He grabs one and said they smell delicious. I respond with a slightly nervous laugh, which he seems to take in stride.

*Please, let everything go smoothly.*

I put the toast down while trembling slightly and leave the table. I open a cupboard and take the coffee can.

*It’s empty.*

I keep staring into the empty can, not daring to move. I feel dazed, frantically trying to think of a way to fix this. He notices me staring into the can and asks what’s wrong.

I hesitantly reply.

“There…there’s no coffee.”

He stares at his plate. It only lasts a moment though. He gets up with no expression, no emotion. I can’t hold back my tears and softly sob while keeping him in sight.

He grabs some cutlery from the drawer, and starts heating it in the oven.

*Not again. Not again. Not again.*
