Apple for the Teacher

“A is for Apple”.


“Pardon?” the young woman asked.

“Why is A for Apple?” Eldarion expanded. “Why isn’t A for Ada? Or for Nana, her name is an A word. Why Apple?”

“Um,” his governess began, “A is for Apple because it’s easily drawn, and is a fruit that everyone knows.”

“But why Apple? Why not Apricot? Apricots are fruits and they’re easy to draw. Or,” warming to his theme, “Almond – nuts are easy to draw. Why Apple?”

On only her second day, she found herself using words she had sworn would never pass her lips.

“It just is.”
