Frosty Quarrel

“You asked me how I feel, mum?” Alice said walking over to the window and lifting her chin towards the wintry garden.

“Like ice. My heart is crying frozen drops of dew, hanging onto the freezing branches. I’m chilled to the core and dead to the world. I’m paralysed by frost and trapped in a tiny iceberg.”

Alice remembered their argument and sighed. “Billy’s not coming back this time.”

Her mother chuckled. “He left an hour ago.”

Alice shook her head. “You don’t understand, mum.”

Her mother smiled. “Trust me, I do. Call him. He’s feeling like the frozen pool.”
