The girl in the green coat made me think of Alice Morgan. She sat at a table for six, ordered a cappuccino, and pulled out an old copy of The Bell Jar. She read for three hours. She didn’t leave her phone on the table beside her coffee like everyone did. I wanted to be her when I was her age. I think they stopped making people like her.
This week’s word prompt is ‘cafe’.
