“Coffee?” the waitress asked.

“Please,” she said. “Oh, can you make it two? I have a friend meeting me.”

He was late, which wasn’t like him. It wasn’t as if he didn’t know this place. This was where they had shared a bowl of tomato bisque. Her eyes had transfixed on his blue ones, as he slurped down spoonfuls. They filled the empty spaces with nervous laughing, brushing their knees under the table. She rested her shoes on top of his and he squeezed her hand.

She embraced the memory with a heavy yearning. The waitress returned with coffee to an empty table.
