Daily Drabble – Glee

Hannah had never really understood glee, being a woman of a stolid and uncomplaining disposition.
She and Amos had rubbed along fairly well for twenty years. Until…
Until his city cousin visited, bringing white skin and soft hands to a place where women were burned dark by the sun and had no time to polish their nails.
For a while the girl tolerated Amos following her as if she was a bitch on heat. When she had enough of his clumsy gallantry and turned to spit furious contempt in his face, Hannah watched gleefully and rather enjoyed the unaccustomed emotion.
