Flicker

‘What the hell are they?’

My husband bustled through the front door, snow swirling with him. He’s carrying two orb-shaped lights on iron rods in his hands.

‘They’re Christmas decorations. I thought they’d look good in living room, on the wall. You know… to create an ambience.’

‘An ambience of what? The backstreets of London in the nineteenth century?’

I can’t suppress a giggle. Honestly, what was he thinking?

By 9pm we’re sat watching TV, Dickensian style. The orbs produce a dull orange glow, but then start to flicker.

‘Where did you say you got them?’

‘Vera’s Voodoo.’
