Over Time

Over Time

Reminiscing to herself after her husband’s funeral, Vera sits alone in her house remembering the times they shared together; the meals, the power cuts, the birth of their daughter.

She sips her tea and smiles as she thinks of all the things she knew about him that he always thought he kept hidden. The side of himself he may have wanted to keep to away from his wife; the bad habits, the amount he cares, the secrets he kept.

Sometimes it’s not until someone dies that you learn who they really are, but Vera knew, Vera always knew.

Originally broadcast on BBC Radio in 2020, Over Time is available to listen to on BBC Sounds.
