What Happens Next?

It started with cake. Cheesecake topped with raspberries, to be exact. They'd been passing the coffee shop, trailing far enough behind the girls to feign disassociation. Nick had glanced through the glass, framed from the inside with airy cream curtains, and his feet had faltered for a second. Long enough for the waitress setting out cheesecake for display to notice, for her eyes to catch Nick's gaze.

What happens next? If you're game, write a little snippet in the comments and let's see where the story goes. Don't worry about sticking to a genre. Anything goes.

Happy Monday, all ♥

The moment lasted less than a second. Someone – a lucky someone who’d likely get to try that wonderful cake – cut Nick’s line of vision. He remembered vividly the shape of her eyes and the lock of hair on her forehead for the next few minutes, until they broke through a crowd gathered in front of a bookstore and crossed the street. Then her face paled and disappeared from his mind.

Until he saw her again.
