No tea for you

She was in a great mood, and wanted to celebrate the monsoon. What could be better than enjoying the rain with hot tea. In next few minutes, the tea was ready. Tea with ginger was her favorite. The aroma set her mind for the rainy wet atmosphere. She followed the steam from her favorite cup she used on special occasions, to the window.

Wow she said, looking outside at the showers, it was dark and gloomy outside. People were struggling with the wind and the rain that seemed to tease them by coming down in random directions.
She breathe in the hypnotic tea aroma. Smiled. When just about to drink, tip tip rain drops from the roof edge dripped in her tea, leaving her betrayed and stupid...

Written for Three Words Wednesday. Prompt : sulk drip hypnotic. Used later two in the post.

  8. Tea is good, I will personally prefer black. Enjoying tea in heavy rain, looking the drops falling everywhere. A cool gush hitting my face. Ah! enough of day dreaming. Its not raining that much in Delhi.

  15. I don't know that I would've used the word betrayed, but I sure do know the feeling of setting up that perfect moment, only to have it ruined by some silly, random event.

    Rain in the perfect cup of tea is like dropping the perfect cookie on the floor.

    That's a great description. I never prefer black tea, I cant think of tea without milk.
    Well, I can say now that the monsoon rains are in good form in Mumbai. I hope that it rains in the North West too, coz it's getting worse over there.
