"i am sorry to have disturbed you, sir. i do not know what i was thinking."

jean-louis had fallen asleep with his eyes open in the silence that had fallen between himself and leonie.

he had put his teacup down but almost knocked it over when she spoke.

fortunately the cup was empty.

there was a half-eaten blueberry scone on a plate beside the teacup.

it took him a few seconds to remember where he was.
