This Morning’s Prompt

Coffee shop


My Inspired Story

I saw him before he even entered the coffee shop, smiled to myself when I heard his order—chai latte, same as mine.

I pretended not to notice when he sat across from me and asked what I was reading. Only when he touched my hand did I look up.

“Hello, wife.”

Now the story truly begins.


Time for Yours

  1. Here’s mine.

    Coffee Shop

    “Is there an exit to this place?” I whispered to a woman at the front counter, as I kept my eye on the front door.

    “Huh?” She was LOUD. “What do we look like, a big box store?

    Someone laughed.

    “The entrance is the exit,” the bored-looking barista continued. “Look, do you wanna order something or not?”

    “No!” I saw the man dart past the plate-glass windows, on his way to the front doors of the coffee shop. I tucked my head down, afraid he’d seen me.

    I ran past a few other customers, headed for a wall in the back and stood there, praying.
