Times Square. July. Hot night.
I sit at the little table and sip Matcha Frappuccino from Starbucks with a long straw. Double amount of whipped cream as always.
Tiny ice crystals crack in my mouth, causing goosebumps on my skin.
I read messages on the phone.
A young guy, looking like Bob Marley at a party, cleans around the tables. He approaches my place and I notice an empty plastic cup under my table so I take it and throw into his trash bag. He grins like the Cheshire Cat.
“Thank you, Madame. The help is very much appreciated.”
We both smile.
Sometimes a little thing can change everything. Even a bad day.
“Stories” are totally real. They happened. They are like pebbles. I throw them ahead hoping the good wave will reach you.
