100 Words - Love And Waffles

waffle house

Paul met his soulmate at a Waffle House in Dothan at 3AM. She was drunk, alone and stranded, having been blacklisted by Uber. She offered to pay for Paul’s chicken-fried steak in exchange for a ride home.  He accepted.

Of course the spirit of his mother was screaming at him for taking such a chance with his life. He was sure though that he could take Suzy in a fight, so he drove her home.

She puked in his car. The passenger window doesn’t roll down. It caught the brunt of the expulsion.

She made it up to him later.
