Until the shaking happened again
Velma had left the room so didn’t hear you slam the cup back on the table, didn’t see the wet patch on your jumper, notice the tears welling up in your eyes.
You’d thought there’d been something wrong for a while. You know your own body, don’t you? But that’s the sort of secret you don’t share with your loved ones, not until they start seeing the signs, and won’t take “no” for an answer.
You waited, palms outstretched, for the shaking to stop, and it did, then you drank your tea as quickly as your throat could take it, until it was gone, until Velda came in, until the shaking happened again.
