“Ahh, these biscuits look lovely! It’s like the perfect gift for Easter. Thanks so much. My family would love them. I would surely decorate these along with a note full of love.”
Annie always enjoyed seeing her customers smile. Whether it was Easter or Christmas, she had not let the pandemic dampen the enthusiasm of her customers.
In times of crisis like these, she knew that her sweets would coincide with the arrival of joy and music in people’s lives.
After she was done for the day, she loved sitting at the lonely chair amongst the trees behind her house.

I’m not sure Annie isn’t a little sad
Oh she is a tad bit sad. But I guess she found happiness in seeing others happy :).
Those who spread happiness, are often found to be lonely deep there. A good take on the prompt.
Yeah I guess they find happiness in keeping others happy. Thanks Navita :).
Ekphrasis literature always introgues me. All the best. Here from atoz.
Thanks Pooja :). Have been exploring this and many other forms of literature off late. It’s been a lot of fun :D.
Despite being lonely, she wanted to spread joy in the life of her customers. Very well written.

Just what Cripina said. I hope, Annie finds some joy, too.
I guess she loved finding joy in the joy of others :).
A nice positive story of our times.
Thanks James :).
Sounds like she needs some of the cheer she gives her customers. Well done.
Oh yes, she could definitely have done with some more cheer in her life.
It is a satisfying feeling to make others happy!
Oh it sure is Brenda :).
Seems to me Annie might not be as happy as she’s making her customers.
I think she does feel happy. But you are right. Maybe subconsciously she doesn’t realize that she’s missing out a lot on her own personal happiness.
