Candy’s crush

PHOTO PROMPT © Roger Bultot

Few people peppered the diner. Candy preferred it this way. Quiet and intimate. She slid into a booth by the window, checked her watch.

They met here everyday at eleven. It was her secret.

Across the street she watched him leave his office. Her breath caught in her throat as he entered the diner. She loved the grey suit he wore today. Complemented his eyes. Deep blue. At the counter she knew he was ordering a cappuccino. Take away. His eyes roamed the diner not really settling on anything. Or anyone.

They met everyday at eleven. It was her secret.

    1. Hi Bryan. She could be a stalker or just an infatuated young girl. And I took the photo for the header in Venice. I don’t know if it’s a store but was just a doorway from a side street. Was so intriguing! Thank you for reading too😊

      1. I’d should have gone to Venice when I was Italy. I went to Florence instead. No regrets… kind of. Still Roma is one of my favorite cities ever.

      2. Next time I go I will do the Florence – Roma route. They sound amazing. I was in the north Torino – Milan – Venezia. Torino was my favourite. A touch of German there. Beautiful places.


  2. I thought this was a great little story! I know you were limited to the 100 word count, but I think this is an idea that would really benefit from some more words that would develop your main character and while still being a flash fiction piece would be a great story to try and get published.
