Resuscitating lilies’

The Invited awakes. The room is full of light. There are things missing from the room. She looks at the now empty spaces where they once had been.  Her body is aching from exercise. The rowing class was her first attempt to strengthen her upper body. All it had seemed to do was bruise her lower back and arms.

A taxi driver pulls up his car outside a house. He steps from his car onto a pile of damp shirts and some lilies. He picks up the three stems and notices they are not quite dead. He carries them into his garage, fills a bucket with water and places the lilies in it.



It was strange how it happened. The whole room had moved around. Luckily for the Invited, other than her the room was pretty sparse. She was found surrounded by damp shirts and dying lilies.
