I saw this man at my cafe today. I keep seeing so many people come and go and grab their orders. He was different. He had this unusually perfect man lips! I could see a spark in his eyes when he looked at me. It was weird at first, but then I realized, it was the smell of the fresh brewed coffee that made him look around the place with that expression. He moved towards the counter.
“Good morning! How are you today?”, the barista always had this obnoxiously excited way to greet the customers. I mean relax Kevin! He will buy our coffee. Don’t be this extra!
“Depends on how soon I get my coffee.” The man replied with a straight face.
I literally had my best laugh of the day.
Kevin went aside to brew the order after MY MAN paid for it. I was busy doing my own thing, when Kevin suddenly pulled me out from my service station! I was literally excited and nervous at the same time. Given his daily behavior, it was not something I will consider spontaneous. He tickled me with a pen. Well it seemed smooth given how close we were to each other that no one could notice anything wrong. It was our little secret! It felt right. Well, atleast for sometime…..
“One large Americano for Daniel?”, Kevin almost screamed.
The man with perfect lips took me off the counter and read his name. Oh boy, the tickle was wrong…..like every other time!
He scoffed as he read his name. “DENIAL? Huh?” He did not bother to wait for Kevin to answer anything and made his way out.
Well, as for me, I brought him happiness as he took the first sip pressing his perfect lips against mine. He opened the exit door to head out. The chill of December was shielded by my warmth while he had that manly grip on me. I found my short lived life’s pursuit!
