I’m just going to add a prompt here for all of my lovely readers to complete at will. My own response will be in the comments section below once I finish, and I would love for you to either add on to it or to write a new one.
Here is the prompt:
A man is sitting outside at a cafe in a city. There is an empty coffee cup on the table before him and an unpaid bill beside it. He sees none of it as he looks out at the street and the cars and the buildings. No one knows what he is looking for — maybe nothing, maybe everything, maybe something entirely different and out of place. He does not see it. A waiter approaches and asks if he needs anything. The man turns his head slowly and stares at the waiter. It is obvious he heard none of what was said. What happens next?
Have fun with it!
