Doors To Mirrors (Excerpt 17) Aroma

“Beep! Beep! Beep!” Sounds the oven timer indicating the pizza is cooked and ready to eat.

Nadja lost track of time sitting here in her own thoughts and memories. She had no idea enough minutes had transpired for the frozen pizza to be completely cooked. As she pops the oven door open, the thick crust is bubbling with sausage, cheese and mushrooms.

“Ummm, this is going to hit the spot.” She says as she breathes in the spicy aroma.

Placing her hand in an oven mitt, she pulls the pan out of the heat and places it on top of the stove to cool. Looking in the pantry, she finds several options of flavored teas neatly stacked in tidy rows. She prepares the teakettle by rinsing it out and pouring in fresh water. It comes to a boil rather quickly and within minutes, her tea is steeping in the cup and she has sliced off two large pieces of pizza.

“I wonder who the man was in my dream.” She questions to herself. “I know it was not Aaron, so who have I passed by in the last few days that would trigger such a mysterious character?”

  1. Great use of description and the senses which bring memories and create back drop for the plot. . . And the plot “thickens!”
