In the old place

Warm cloudy morning. I’m getting dressed pants, a blouse, a blazer and sandals. She put on her make-up and let her hair down. With a light step, I walk along a gorgeous street, full of fragrant flowers, which leads to my favorite bookstore. I look at the clock, it’s exactly 11 o’clock.

I walk into the bookstore and my breath catches for a moment. I saw a familiar face. It’s been a year since I saw that enigmatic smile and fiery green eyes. I paused for a moment and quickly hid behind the bookshelf, hoping he wouldn’t see me. I picked up a book with an interesting title and started reading the contents.

– You can’t escape the past, she’s here, whether you want to or not. – he whispered softly.

I turned and stared at my past and future.

I think this is the right book for you. – he smiled slightly.

I hurried to the exit of the bookstore. I felt his hand stop me.

– It’s time to talk, I’ll explain everything to you, in the old place today at 5 p.m. please come.

Memories slowly flood in, as I walked thoughtfully I was already close to my apartment. A bowl of my favorite nuts cake stood in the middle of the table. I started packing them in a small box. I put on a gorgeous long dress, my hair pulled up slightly. It was close to 5 p.m. I’m already late. I hurriedly walked towards the old place.

And if I was late, he was waiting for me. On the table stood two cups of our favorite raspberry tea with honey and a well-known little book from the bookstore. I opened the box of nuts cake and placed it in the middle of the table.

In silence we drank tea and ate nuts cake as before. The rain was falling quietly and after a long time, he and I needed a friendly, honest conversation and the inevitable warm hug.
