Like Minds

Thoughts of guilt and despair crashed through her mind. Radio and daytime TV offered no succour. She needed to get out. She’d take her Kindle and treat herself to a cream tea.
Idling through town, woollen hat and scarf wrapped against the cold, she found herself outside the Diner. Remembering the music, milkshakes and good times, she regretted she couldn’t enter; John might be there. Head bowed, she hurried by. The doorbell tinkled as she stepped into the café, unwinding her scarf.
John looked up from a table, “What are you doing here?”
“Avoiding the diner,” she groaned with resignation.

  1. Dear Michael,

    It sounds like she’s run into the very one she’s trying to avoid. Either that or the diner’s closed down due to the virus. Either way a good story that leaves me with questions. Well done.

    Shalom,

    Rochelle
