Spill the Tea

Whispers in the street as she tightens her hood. Hiding her face from the crowd.

“Isn’t that the girl who choked on her tea?”

The words make her tense up, she was indeed that girl. A five second clip of her choking and spluttering over a cup of tea went viral after her friend posted it to her public social media account.

The clip misses out the part where she glanced down and saw the dead wasp in her cup.

Without context the girl comes across as someone who can’t swallow tea, and in a world full of drama lovers anything even remotely associated with tea is sure to be an instant hit.

All she can do now as she makes her way to school is that it all blows over and people stop seeing her as the girl who spilled the tea.
