Numb

She sat stareing blankly into space,barely hearing the radio trying to outdo the tumble drier in the backround,while in another room, a television blared out the news to noone in particular.

       As the day slowly passed from morning to afternoon she sometimes became aware and glanced around, found something out of place and tidied it away, sometimes making a cup of tea, a sandwich,pick up a biscuit to be left forgotten by her side as she sunk back once more into her silent trance. Soon they all would come home,and there would be no more time for thinking.

  

The End
