Her husband's retirement did nothing to him. He was up and ready for his morning cup of coffee as early as 6 am. She, still half asleep dragged herself to kitchen. It was something she found in the kitchen which woke her up completely. The tea container which was empty since long was now full. She opened the container lid and took in the aroma. The tea leaves told the story. They revealed the secret kept by her husband. That day, she served him coffee with smile. She knew the surprise that was awaiting her. Her son was coming home soon.
