The look of love
"The look of love is in your eyes..."
Yesterday I went into one of my favorite deli restaurants for a late lunch. It was about 3pm so the place wasn't very busy.
I chose a table near the wall and looked across the small dining area toward the window. I noticed an attractive, sexy young man eating a salad at a table in front of the window. So each time I looked out the window I saw the attractive young man.
The waiter came to my table and I noticed that he, too, was an attractive young man. I ordered and then watched the waiter visit the other tables asking the patrons if they needed anything. The attractive man at the window table followed the waiter with his eyes, then noticed me looking at him. I pretended to be looking out the window.
The waiter refilled drinks, brought extra napkins, and dropped of checks at some of the tables. All the while the guy at the window seat watched the waiter go from table to table. Then he stopped at the window table and the attractive man seated there smiled at him and they spoke briefly about something I couldn't hear.
I began to think "I wonder if the guy at the window table is the waiter's boyfriend?" Neither had any give-away signs of being gay, but the look in the one guy's eyes made me wonder if they were a couple.
The waiter brought my Cuban sandwich, then visited all of his tables again including the window table. Again the guy seated there smiled genuinely at the waiter.
As I was about 1/2 way through my sandwich, I noticed the guy at the window seat was getting up to leave. He walked over to where the waiter was entering an order into a computer touch screen. The patron said something to the waiter, then leaned over and kissed him on the cheek and patted his waste.
