Twenty minutes went by. I was getting restless. Where the hell was she? Had something terrible happened? The range of horrendous possibilities was endless. I couldn't take it anymore. I crushed my final butt on the pavement and crossed the street.

I opened the diner door a little too forcefully. The bell above it rang a little too loud. Everyone looked up from their meals and I tried my best to smile at them all. It must have looked ghastly.

A waitress came over to me. I wondered if she recognized me. I didn't think so. I took a chance.
