Josh leaned against a tarnished 1950â€™s parking meter outside the town bakery. Heâ€™d been there a good half hour, watching Annie through the display window covered with decorated paper cupcakes. She had a booming business, but no surprise there, she was a top-notch baker. Her customers always left happy and smiling. He wished like hell he could walk in there, chat, and walk back out with a smile, but he was afraid his exit would be much more dramaticâ€”like through her storefront window, and heâ€™d be paying for the replacement glass.
