Short Story: Kitchen Lesson

Genre: slice of life


“Sugar, spice, and everything nice. That’s how you make a chai latte. Now go and make your own!” the teacher said.

“But what do we actually put in?” a student asked.

“Everything nice!”

“Which is?”

“Many things. Just open your eyes and look.”

The student took off his apron and tossed it aside.

“That’s it. I’m out of here.”

Half the class followed him out.

“Anyone else?” the teacher asked the remaining students.

No one moved.

“Looks like I still have a class. Well done. The kitchen is a dangerous place. Respect for authority is the basics of working together in a team. Now, let’s move on to the real lesson.”

The teacher flipped the whiteboard over.

This is what we’re doing today.”
