“Two coffees without sugar,the usual’.  The waiter interrupted. She smiled at the waiter, “Thanks.” Her cell beeped, “I got to go. He has come.”

He frowned, “Ok. See you tomorrow.” He got up and got her stick. He helped her get up and said slowly, “I  love you.” She smiled but said nothing. He said irritably, “Come on you can say it.”

She  walked slowly towards the door of the coffee shop, looked back and smiled at him. She saw a car and a person waving and running towards her.

He stopped near her, “Maa, you shouldn’t come for walks. You are reaching 65 and it’s dangerous.” She smiled at him, “But I am still young at heart.”
