It is 100 word Friday thanks to Rochelle Wisoff Fields. Links can be found here.
Greg did not come for the coffee or the company of people. It was the view he loved. He sat by the window, his eyes turned in the direction of Julia. The details printed into memory, an actor’s role in a play. He knew what he would say. He had practiced a thousand times.
Her hazel eyes met his. Stage fright set in. He stuttered, blushed and whispered words only he could hear.
She walked away, turned to look back and smiled.
The words did not matter.
The stained glass sun rising over new love.

A lot can happen over coffee, as they say.
Cute story Tom.
“…whispered words only he could hear.” Poor shy guy. Hopefully he’ll get that tongue untied soon and remember his lines. Maybe Julia will prompt him. She does call him by his first name after all.
Well done, touching story.
You get the feeling this had been an ongoing thing. Thanks for the kind words.
A love story in the making acted out in play. Sometimes silence speaks volumes, and a smile lights a room.
Ahh, the angst of first love! Nicely portrayed, Tom. A smile, like a picture, is worth a thousand words.
Thank you Janet. Poor guy needs to get the words out.
That’s very sweet. I can sympathize with that urgent, stuttering bashfulness around women. I like your metaphor of a play, complete with stage fright.
I think a lot of men can relate to that feeling. Some of us get over it and learn to pull the trigger and just say what’s on our mind…others never do and because of it spend their lives alone. Thanks for the kind words.
I can so identify with this. Beautifully done.
Thanks for the kind words. We both touched on the inability to communicate.
Nicely done. Very emotional.
Let me just start by saying your blog is one hell of a pain in the ass for me to comment on…that aside, I like your work but my comments will not be found on your blog because I am not sure what blood type I need to get on it!…I meant to put that aside….Thanks for the kind words and for taking the time out to comment.
I don’t know what the hell I am doing wrong
P.S. I would love to comment on your blog.
Coming in early, huh? See how this thing grows on you, kind of like a wart. Ha! Good story. Non-verbal communication doesn’t lie and is the strongest connection between people. Your story captures that perfectly. Ron
I think I always have come in early but this time in under six… I got a kick out of yours this week. Always a pleasure to see you. Thanks for the kind words.
That was very touching, Tom. Loved the last line.
Thank you Ted be over to see what coded inside joke you have in store this week.
Very sweet and visual. You are never a disappointment, Thomas the Poet.
You are a flower in a field of grass, always a pleasure to see… even when surrounded by beauty you stand out.
ahhh. new love. 😉 well done.
Thank you Rich.
I absolutely adore that last line…very well done
Thank you Boomie.
I love the word adore.
Thank you. Sweet of you to stop in.
Very sweet story. I hope Greg found his voice and a good woman to love.
I am not sure if Greg will find his voice but maybe just maybe she will see beyond that and love him for who he is. Thanks for the kind words.
oh nice one. so romantic. Also so real. Most would have a hard time telling someone they cared.
Thank you Jackie. It is not easy to do.
coffee and new love! The best of combinations,except for ice cream of course. This one make me think she was leaving, and then left me feeling good.
The look back… a man should always wait for the look back…it tells it all. Glad you left feeling good.
Been there. Nice one.
Thank you Hunter.
Bravo to you for writing this beautiful love story. Last line perfect. Future bright. Really dig this one.
Thank you for the kind words.
Aw, I wish he would have gotten to tell her. I hope there’s another chance in the future.
Thanks for the kind words…I loved yours this week. The best one so far.
Thank you Mari.
Maybe if he spilled some she’d help clean it up and they’d get some down-on-their-knees floor time together. Great last line, Tom.
I like the way you think…you had me laughing…”some down-on-their-knees floor time”. That’s a great line. Thanks for the laugh, comment and for taking the time to read.
such a beautiful story!
Thank you Deana.
I so understand the stage fright!
I think all men do!
