A Cup of Tea

the world is colorless. everything is black and white. in this world, though, only two colors stand tall: the cold blue of god, and the hot red of the devil. Adam and his family have invited Rina and her son Maxim for Adam\'s birthday. The strict Adam reads a few religious poem\'s and than starts talking about religious experiences with Rina. After that, Deliah, Adam\'s wife, comes from the kitchen and brings tea. However, there are no ta cups. Why? Because Rina and Maxim brought striped tea cups as birthday presents for Adam. Adam gladly decides to drink from the cups with everyone else, and so they drink. Suddenly, a miracle. the stripe on Adam\'s cup turns blue, and so does on the cups of his two sons. it makes him happy. Deliah, however, didn\'t drink from the cup with sugar, thus the stripe doesn\'t change. But what agitates him is that Rina\'s stripe is red, and what\'s worse, Maxim\'s stripe is purple. Adam and his family Shuns at Rina and Maxim. Despite Rina and Maxim\'s efforts to try and make peace with the family, they get exiled from their house.

He starts growing suspicious of Deliah and her colorless cup. When she arrives to give Adam some towels, he starts interrogating her. she claims she has diabetes and thus drank from the cup without sugar. Adam tries to force her to drink sweetened water from the cup, but she escapes from him.
