This is a short story about Mary, a young woman who loved to read, while sting at a table on her favorite cafe

Just a dreamer..

Mary she was sitting quietly at her favorite table on her favorite café. She always loved to sit there, and just forget for a while about work to lose herself on one of her books. Her favorite table was close to a very big window, so Mary always had an excellent source of light to read, without having to force her already tired eyes. While she was there, just feeling the warm beverage going through her throat, she felt like there wasn´t something more perfect, it was just herself, an introverted young girl, having a wonderful moment of perfect solitude.
Mary sometimes thought about what the people of the café might think about her, a petite girl with thick glasses who seemed to spend a lot of time on the café, instead of going out with her friends. Perhaps they thought she was such a weirdo, and they spent some time silently judging her, maybe thinking something was wrong with her.
Or, perhaps they thought the opposite thing about her. There was a chance that someone had seen Mary reading, and so, such person decided to enjoy the afternoon with Mary, from a distance, of course, by watching her silently.
However, on such a precious afternoon, Mary decided she had no more time to waste by trying to guess the thoughts of other people about her.
What if someone had a silent crush on her, or not? In the end, it was exactly the same. Life is very short to spend it desperately looking for love. Sometimes, it´s just better to relax a little bit, and just let our souls enjoy the perfect flow of life. If living a wonderful love story is on our destiny, it is ok. Otherwise, there is a whole sea filled with love stories waiting desperately to be read by someone.
