The store sat empty, as it did most days of the week. Dust
regularly collected on the cash register sitting in front of you and its brass
keys grew stiff with the lack of activity. With your elbows propped up on the
counter, you leaned your weight forward and held your chin in the hand that
wasn’t busy drumming across the countertop. They tapped in time with the clock
ticking on the wall, a constant reminder that you were stuck here on such a
lovely day outside.
It was unusually warm for this time of year. Normally
covered in a dreary layer of gray, the sidewalks and storefronts shone in the
rare-April sunshine, people out and about, taking advantage of the weather. You
were antsy as you watched out the window, hoping that someone, anyone, would walk through the door and
give you something to talk about.
