Daniel sighed, already fed up with standing at the back of the seemingly endless line of people at the checkout. All he wanted was to buy a carton of orange juice! The redhead in front to him must have heard his sigh; she turned around with a smile.
“It’s a long queue.”
“Yeah.” He held up his juice. “All I want is this!”
“Well all I want is aspirin.” She had two boxes in one hand while she held the other out to him. “I’m Willow.”
“Daniel.” They shook hands but the motion revealed a nasty gash on the inside of her wrist. He nodded at it. “Can I ask what happened?”
“De- I mean, I slipped. Cutting bread, you know?” She blushed and turned away, suddenly fascinated with her hands. While they had been talking the queue had moved on a little and they were closer to the front.
“So, um…” Daniel tried to break the silence that had descended between them. “You live around here?”
“No, just passing through. I’m from Sunnydale actually.”
“I heard about that place. Does it really have 8 cemeteries?”
“Well, you see…” their light conversation lasted to the checkout where they said goodbye.
