NFF, Funny, 2024’s 2nd Valentine’s story

“Table for one, please.”

The host raised an eyebrow, peering over the top of his glasses at her, “For one?”

April  resisted the urge to shift uncomfortably under his gaze, eyes flicking over to the packed-with-couples dining room. She brought her eyes back to him after a moment and nodded, “Yep.”

She didn’t miss the annoyance that flashed across his face as he stepped out from behind the podium, “This way.”

She followed him through the dining room, using all her strength to keep her eyes on the back of his head and tried not to focus on the fact each happy couple stopped their chattering as she made her way past their tables.

It’s just a day on the calendar. She forced herself to take in a deep breath in a failed attempt to calm herself as he finally stopped at a table close to the back, gesturing for her to sit.

She gave him a polite smile as she slid into the chair, placing her purse down on the seat beside her, “Thank-you.”

The host grunted, practically frisbeeing the menu at her before walking away.

Wow, okay. April picked the menu up from the table, flicking it open. She raised the menu higher than necessary to read, cheeks burning red as she felt the eyes from the other patrons boring holes into her face.

Stop it. You have just as much right to be here as they do.
