Here is the photo and my story…
“What?” Harriet asked.
Harriet and Sue had finally found a table at the Cafe Du Monde. They ordered beignets and two coffees.
“I don’t think Blake loves me anymore,” Sue repeated. “He doesn’t seem to pay attention to me.”
“You mean like he did when you first married?” Harriet glanced at Sue.
Something knowing passed between them. Something that remained unspoken.
“No,” Sue said.
She meant yes but she couldn’t say yes because that could be mistakenly interpreted and open her up to possibilities she didn’t, herself, understand just yet.
The waiter brought their order. For a few minutes, they ate in silence. All around them, other diners – some of them noisy – probably tourists, snapped pictures and laughed happily.
“What did you expect?” Harriet asked.
“I don’t know.”
But that wasn’t true. Sue had expectations, she just hadn’t defined them yet.
