Trouble at the Mill

The siren was calling us workers to work. The clatter of clogs on the wet cobbles was almost deafening. Down stairs the fire was banked up with slack, ready to be stirred into life. I knew the sink was a mess, but last night was different. As usual grandma sent us each to bed with a bowl full of hot milk containing pieces of toasted bread. The sounds outside slowly reduced until silence returned. All was quiet. The Spanish flu saw to that.

  1. I shall remember the odd silence from this pandemic too, the lack of cars on the roads in particular. Unfortunately we have reverted back to life as normal without a second thought to changing our ways.

  2. In a hundred years they will be writing fiction about the times of COVID-19. Good story. Hoping things get sorted with the new Word Press for you.
