Ben had just gotten out of a depression funk that seemed to be happening to him a lot lately. He sighed deeply and looked over at the Blue Cafe. It was his favorite place to go and hang out, so he crossed the street. Once across he entered the Blue Cafe and looked around not many people were there tonight and that was fine by him, but the waitress at the bar was a old friend of his and she quickly got off the cell and came around the counter to hug him, "Ben how are you?"
"Been better, Sarah and you?"
"Same old same old."
"That boyfriend of yours still around?"
"No I kicked him out of the apartment I was paying for."
"That a girl. I always did say he was no good."
"Yeah want anything to drink tonight?"
"A soda would be nice."
"Alright find a place to sit." Ben nodded as Sarah walked away and looking about he sat at a bar across the room farthest from the door he wanted to be warm in hopes that it would melt the ice that he seemed to feel surrounding him. He shivered for no reason as he removed his jacket looking around from the door to the stage, but when Sarah brought him his drink he smiled softly at her as if nothing was wrong and she walked away.
