Without looking, I shove

Without looking, I shove it away, “No. I. Have. It.” But the steam as I clean will not be contained. “Do you think we’re all just here to serve your whims, desperate to please you?” I stop, hairs short of an angry screech. He comes forward with more napkins. I shove his hand away again. “Don’t. Bother. Just sit back and demand you chauvinistic, self-centered, pompous,” a word forms, I won’t succumb, “I. Will. Do. This. My. Self.” Alison arrives with a new tray, tries to intervene and make amends. Navy shifts, “It’s not your apology, Alison. I think everything is back in order.” He slides the first tray to her, cups and utensils neatly placed. Alison eases, “I’m so sorry Kathryn, your order is almost ready. To go, right?” Humbled, I nod and consider adding something new or changing the apple to a banana. But I feel the heat of Navy’s look. Alison’s eyes dart back and forth. I hand her the money. Navy clears his throat, my files in his hand. “Kathryn, I apologize. It appears I’ve offended you. I think your files were caught in time.” I yank them away. He teases arrogance, “Are you not going to look at me, Kathryn?” “No!” Size Two patent leather shoes stomp with my 22-year-old tantrum. “All right,” he studies, “it appears I’ve done some damage here. Again, my apologies, I’m truly sorry.” I tune him out, take the bag, chisel my thank you smile to Alison and huff away. But new horrors await. I cringe as her face appears at the door. “OH MY GOD!” Beth’s inner Italian mother fills the café. She hugs and elates, “I’m so PROUD of you Kathryn, you ARE making changes!” The Rules of Life by Melissa Abbott-Cooke. Contact: 615-669-5643 22

Clenched behind my jaws of steel, “Not. Now. Beth.” I storm out and onto North Fairbanks. The Rules of Life by Melissa Abbott-Cooke. Contact: 615-669-5643 23
