I live in this small town of very loving people, where love is important than money.
I run a stationary shop, and during lunch time I come to this coffee shop which is heart of this town. This shop is 50 years old and an old couple run this shop both husband and wife who are owner of this shop are very caring people. They treat every people like their kids. I am coming at this place since I was 8 and from past 10 years I am observing the people who come here daily.
This particular day I closed my shop when it was 12 noon and the earth was getting more hot and hot. I entered the coffee shop and said hi to every one like I do every day.
I looked around and found my seat in the corner of the shop, I sat and ordered one coffee with some cookies. After two minutes I got my coffee and cookies and started enjoying them.
There were 7 tables in the shop with few stools with the counter and the old man and his wife (Mr. and Mrs. Robert) were working behind the counter. There was a young couple who often come here to spend some time together, Their coffee was getting cold and they even don’t care about that. They were just looking in each other’s eyes telling how much they love each other.
On the other table, a man with his two kids was sitting sipping on his coffee and his kids were enjoying their ice cream. That man don’t live here, he left this town after having divorce his kids are living with his ex wife but he come in this town every weekend to meet his kids. He was asking about their studies and all that. although the things between him and his ex wife didn’t go well but he still love her. He ask every one in this town about her wife to know if she is happy and need anything. He is a true example of love.
The door of the shop opened and two teens entered, they were in their school uniform and I guess they had skipped their classes. The teen boy looked around for a table to sit with his girl friend, but he got sad seeing no seat. I stood up offering them my table. He smiled and came to my table. I sat on the stool at the counter. Every one in the shop smiled when they noticed the teen boy pulling chair for his girlfriend, I guess they were on a date. They were looking so cute together and they were telling that love is innocent.
Mr. Robert went to their table with two cups of ice cream. She put her hands on their head giving her blessings, boy tried to hold his girl’s hands on the table but Girl blushed and pulled her hand away. Mr. Robert was looking at them and he smiled looking at me as I was also watching them.
There was one more couple in the shop, who was looking a little serious and sad, I was trying to figure out why they were sad but suddenly the girl started crying. Mrs. Robert went to her and sat next to that girl. she asked her something and then hugged her. Mrs. Robert held her face and wiped her tears. Girl smiled and Mrs. Robert came back to the counter.
I asked Mrs. Robert about that girl and her problem. Mrs. Robert told me that she is in love with the guy who was sitting with her, and they were in that relationship from past two years, now the girl was pregnant and she didn’t knew how to tell her parents. Mrs. Robert assured her that she will talk to her parents.
An old man entered in the shop and sat next to me. He was carrying some chart papers and brushes etc he was an artist, he ordered a beer and started talking with Mr. Robert about the things going on in this town.
I was having my cookies and doing some calculation the earning of my shop when I heard everyone clapping and making joyful voices. I looked back and saw Eric who had married to a widow (Carmen). Carmen was 5 years older than Eric but as we know that love sees no age, religion so were happy about both of them..Every one congratulated them and Eric ordered drinks for adults and ice cream for children.
The day went so fast and I saw happiness on every face, that teen couple was happy about their first date, The man with kids was happy to know that his kids are happy and her wife miss him so much. He told every one that he would be marry with his ex wife again. The girl who was pregnant was happy to know that Mrs. Robert had talked to her mom on phone, she had no problem with her pregnancy. She just wanted to see her daughter happily married with the guy who loved her.
We wished good luck to Eric and Carmen and left the shop. We all went out of the shop together saying bye to Mr. and Mrs. Robert.
