fate comes in the form of an afternoon breeze that sweeps its way into the sorry excuse of a café that’s tucked far beyond the twists and turns of new york city. its fingers are curious and its toes are playful, and with a mischievous giggle, fate decides to take one of the papers on alex benedetto’s table and blow it away into another customer’s lunch.
“my god— i’m sorry,” alex says and abandons her table, shuffling away with heels against tiles towards the other victim of fate’s pranks.
the other customer— victim— whatever— shakes his head and picks the gravy-stained paper with his index finger and thumb.
