Lillian nearly completed her circuit around the tiny shop when a shiny moka pot with a discount sticker caught her eye. Oddly, it reminded her of a similar, hazy construct from her dream the night before.
At least… maybe it had been a dream? The image in her mind’s eye felt mysteriously important, like the key to a sealed memory, but it kept vanishing every time she attempted to recall it.

I love the mystery this holds David! Warm like the heated coffee pot in the image. If I do write something this was my image of choice too.

Nicely woven (again), David. I wonder now about many memories I cannot recall. am I being protected?
