Whispering Silences

Coffee stop

©Ted Strutz

It was a four-hour drive to Minnesota. A very long period of time to not speak to each other.

Can we stop for coffee?” she said softly after about an hour and a half passed.

He nodded; “Of course, at the next stop”.

It wasn’t the drink itself that was a necessity for them both. It was the act of reconciling over it.

Coffee, no matter how much a requisite for some to start the day, is a means to enjoying each other’s company. It is the pretext of getting together and sharing views.

Of enjoying life with one another.

  3. It sounds like the thaw is melting already. Sharing a coffee will move the reconciliation along nicely.

    Nice story! Coffee partaking is a much better way to bridge the silence than just ‘stop ignoring me’.
