I will be posting short stories on my blog that I've composed. I think it will be a cool addition to the blog. I hope you enjoy this story. Let me know. BTW, I've posted this story a while back under the short stories tab. I don't think that many people have read it since I didn't post it on the main page. You might find it entertaining on a boring Monday :)! Have a sweet day!
Rainy Morning at the City Cafe
She woke up that morning feeling tired. She didn't have enough sleep. She stretched her hands and yawned. She got off of bed and went through her morning routine. She showered, made breakfast, blew dry her hair, put her make up on, and finally headed to the closet. It was an important day for her. She worked at a well known fashion magazine in the city. She had to impress her boss and client by her presentation. So she tried on a few outfits. Finally she decided to wear red. She thought it would be a powerful color and that it would make an impact. So she slipped on her professional red dress and paired it with her red heels. The moment she put it on, she felt confident with the way she looked which boosted her confidence towards her day!
She headed to work and when she arrived she had realized that she was an hour early. So she decided to head to the cafe near the building she works at. She thought to herself, "I'll get my coffee while looking over the presentation paperwork". The moment she sat on her chair, it started drizzling outside. Then the rain was pouring. She was distracted by the rain. She was sipping her first few sips of coffee while enjoying the city and the rain. Cars were passing by. People were running to work before getting drenched by the rain. Everything was moving fast but very slowly in her eyes. She couldn't remember when the last time was that she actually paid attention to the little things. She had been working non stop. She was enjoying being in the moment, and she decided right then, that she would now take time to smell the flowers more often. A few minutes later, a handsome man saw her from outside the window of the cafe. He was taken by her beauty and elegance. He smiled and gazed at her for a few seconds. She smiled back and thought he was handsome. They shared a moment there. Then he continued walking. She felt a little dejected! Then she thought to herself she is being a little silly meeting someone through a cafe window! A few minutes later, he walked in the cafe, closed his umbrella and headed towards her.
"Can I join you" he said.. She felt startled at first in a good way. She didn't think this scenario would actually happen but she was happy it did. "Sure" she said. They were talking and engaged in conversation until she had to go to work. He offered to walk with her since he had an umbrella, to protect her from the rain. She agreed and was impressed with his sweet offer. They arrived inside her work building. "You look very beautiful," he said. Then he asked for her contact number, she gave it to him. Eventually, She headed to work with a big smile on her face!
