Unrequited love

Observed and overheard in Buxton this morning;

A boy and a girl both in their late teens are standing in the middle of Spring Gardens.

“Well thanks for breakfast” she said and holding out her hand added, “Let’s stay in touch.”

He stands, unable to find the words, trying to delay their parting. This wasn’t how it was meant to end, breakfast was supposed to be the beginning.
