Short Story #5
Every Sunday, they’ll meet up at the cozy coffee shop at the corner of Lucknow Street in St. James. They’ll sit at their favorite table at the back and order a slice of the shop’s signature chocolate cheesecake washing it down with cinnamon hot chocolate.
Secondary school lovebirds until that fateful day when she told him that she was in love with someone else.
Although he doesn’t come anymore, she still faithfully makes the trip every Sunday to their favorite coffee shop, hoping, yearning, that he’ll somehow forgive her for her awful mistake and that everything will go back to normal for them. She’ll tell him how foolish she was for choosing Andrew over him, but she had no choice given that her father had prearranged her marriage with a wealthy banker’s son.
For now, all she had was pleasant memories of those days spent huddled at their favorite table that a young couple now solely occupied on Sundays.
