Magpie Tales: The Loving Cup

Willow over at Life at Willow Manor  has come up with a new photo prompt for bloggers on a site called Magpie Tales.  She'll be posting a photo weekly as a prompt for a fictional account or poem telling of its history and/or how the item in the photo came to be in your possession.  Be sure to check out the other people creating a tale this week.  And now, on with the show...

The Loving Cup

The silver creamer had been a wedding gift.  We always laughed about it as it was much fancier than anything else we owned.  For more than 20 years it sat in a box in the attic. 

It wasn't until he left that he let me know what it was he had done six months before.  He had polished the creamer as a symbol of his renewed dedication to our union.  In his mind he had turned it into a loving cup.  He just didn't tell me about it.  I never noticed and he never told until it was too late.  

So he was bitter and made me feel it was my fault that we didn't last.

A loving cup is to be shared, not hidden... or else it is just a creamer, left to tarnish in the dust.
