The Fox and the Tea Garden Pt 2 of 2

Fox put away the tea, washed up, and wiped off the table. He walked outside for a time to enjoy a light breeze, waiting for the table to dry. Returning to the inside of the small room, he pulled out a scroll and sat… Continue Reading “The Fox and the Tea Garden Pt 2 of 2”
