The Previous Owner #104


She came back a few minutes later and pushed a plate at me that had a half-ass cheeseburger and some limp looking fries on it. She slid a cup of tepid coffee at me. I guessed I deserved it, though.

I ate my less-than-stellar meal very slowly, waiting for the lunch crowd to thin out. I must have sat there for almost two hours nibbling on my food before the last person left.

"Okay," I said as the door closed, "I'm sorry, Mo. You know I would never hurt you."

"I know no such thing!" she screamed.
