Saturday Word of the Day: Vespertide

*Vespertide: evening

It was a calm vespertide. Humidity pushing up sweat onto skin. Time moving too slow and fueling impatience.

The pot sat on the stove. Flames steadily burned. A nice vespertide meal was cooking.

A young cook sat waiting for the water to boil. Tick, tick, the clock chanted the seconds. After a long day of work the time till food would be ready was far too long.
