Mark Johnson is stuck in a rut. 

He's had the same boring office job for ten years, without the motivation or inclination to change it. The same crumbling house for ten years, without the cash or the know how to fix it. And the same facebook status for five years; it's complicated. It isn't. He's single. He just doesn't want to correct it. That would be admitting defeat.

It is the day a tea bag splats onto his face whilst emptying the dregs of his morning cuppa at Macy's Tea Shoppe that makes him question each of his current life choices. 

The tea bag and the fact that the shop is now owned by one rather friendly, rather hunky Aussie named Bradley Summers. 

Tea never tasted so good.

This chapter is starting off very interesting as your other stories I have read. You are an awesome writer, but I guess you have probably heard this before. I already love both Mark and Brad plus Macy.

All funny but I specially liked the reference to Mark having a preferred shade of tea on a paint colour chart, that was ace.

I only became a fan of Ben Wishaw when I watched his movie 'Lilting' He's so magnetic in that film. Love this chapter by the way!

Yes, I'm reading the workman's dialogue in Irish accent, 10x better.
