Cafe Jazz #9

No, Colin did not want another coffee, because when he had asked Helena she still had half a cup left and anyway she had to get back to work soon. Her lunchtime. All too brief at the best of times.
You would enjoy working in the Library, she said, it’s very quiet most of the time.
Colin agreed he probably would.
But I don’t read much, he said. You do, do you?
She checked her watch. She hated being late.
Sorry, you need to get back, but no, she still had five minutes. She didn’t, but she said she did.

    Oh, when you have to go but don’t want to say bye just now. Nicely conveyed, Drew.
