With the muddy weather and her stupid waitressing job, London wasn’t as much fun as she’d imagined. Why, the customers never even looked at her! Back home she’d be cozily gossiping over the counter. Here was that cute fellow again: she bet she could wake him up!
Tea, coffee, hot chocolate, or an erotic massage?
He looked up, startled.
Just kidding, she smiled. We do have delicious muffins…
He blushed. I’ll … I’ll have some of those, then. And some tea.

This is a lovely captured moment. I can see her light up right away. 🙂 A cheery story on a dull day. 😀 N.i.c.e.
Thanks! I saw the prompt and simply couldn’t resist tacking on a wildly improbable alternative. 🙂
Well done. 😀
Great job with the challenge. It’s hard to write something interesting that makes sense in so few words.
Thanks. Actually, it comes with practice. The first time writing a story under 500 words was quite hard, but then you learn to strip the story down to essentials. And it’s so nice and fast too 🙂
Love what you did with this. Waking up the customer and your reader! Nice job!
Thank you. I’m glad you like it!
Hahaha excellent, this is the sort of thing I’d think about in the waitresses situation but not follow through!
Yes. I guess this one is easier to write than to pull off 🙂
