Startled by the crowd’s sudden outburst
John and Cindy stared at each other
in utter amazement as the crowd chanted,
Say yes! Say yes! Say yes! Say yes!
Cindy laughed hysterically
then nodded her answer
as she whispered softly,
The crowd cheered,
and by all accounts
this was an epic first date
to be remembered forever.
The two exchanged numbers
and made their way
through the cheering crowd
towards the exit.
But before she left,
Cindy ran back
to give the cafe owner
a special thank you.
She gave him the biggest hug
she could muster,
then kissed him playfully
on his forehead.
Being an older man in his sixties,
and in customary Asian fashion,
bowed in humility.
But before she could make it
out the door he yelled half-jokingly,
in his heavy Asian accent,
And no more fainting in my cafe!
Commotion bad for business!!!
Bad for my heart too!!!
The crowd busted out laughing
as did Cindy and John,
and with that, they exited the cafe.
