Final chapter and epilogue of ‘Cream and Rose Brocade’
Excerpt: “By the sound of you, things are well progressing.” The doctor announces and Elsie feels ready to hurl the jug of water on her nightstand at him.
“The sound? Beryl, tell this man to go away.” She grabs her friend’s hand hard. “I should have known better than to have a man take care of this.”
“But Elsie!” Beryl only gets the two words out before Elsie grunts again. “I mean it. He needs to leave. Have the nurse come in.” Elsie orders. She sees the doctor wipe his hands on a cloth and putting it down next to the basin of steaming water.
