Charles walked into the diner,shaking off the snow and the stomping out his boots. The city had a blizzard that day, not entirely strange, it was Christmas Eve anyway. It was strange that people like him were going out to eat. But they had people to eat with. Charles was paid generously by the library and also by shoveling snow. He saved it all and decided to go out for once. Although he had money, he just broken up with his boyfriend. It was not surprising, just odd. Whatever. They were getting into fights anyway. Charles ran his hands through his black curly hair as he sat down at a table. The waiter was a nice middle aged lady, they new each other. He got a steak and some coffee to warm himself up. Something spotted his eye though. You. You caught his attention.
