A miracle, I made it for Friday Fictioneers this week! Thanks to Rochelle for hosting and for a wonderful year of leading this group. Thank you, thank you!!
Thanks also to Roger Bultot for contributing his photo for this week’s prompt. I just love diner stories.
A little sci-fi/romance this week. Sure, why not? Hope you can make sense of this.
And good news…this just happens to be my 500th post!!

A Light Caress
His head felt foggy. Patrons shoveled food in their mouths and didn’t look up from their plates.
“More coffee?” The waitress was already tipping her pot.
Jake nudged the cup toward her and dropped a dollar on the counter.
She grabbed it instantly. He’d never seen a waitress so desperate for a single dollar bill, only she look displeased by the whole thing.
“What did I do?”
“This don’t work here. Your scan?” The waitress turned over his arm. “You need to go.”
Jake wandered the barren street, thinking only of the waitress and her light caress. He had to see her again.

A bit of a Charlie Brown tree this year (long story), but still shining bright with a little love and some lights. 🙂
Wishing everyone safe and happy holidays!!
