After much anticipation,
I finally save up enough money.
I take the bus all the way from p.c.c for my "much deserved lunch" (I knew that if I went, I was not going to make it in time for my evening class)
I get there famished.
I see it unlit and empty, but the little dancing Buddha at the cash register keeps me optimistic, and
then....I see it:
my heart drops to the bottom of my feet...
"No, it just can't be"...
I try too open the door, as if there could still be a chance, but like taking the knife out of a deep wound. I think that hurt more.
oh well, maybe next time.
