Biscuits (Fiction)

By Krisz Rokk | Quantum Stories | 17 Feb 2023

A smooth wind welcomed the new season causing leaves to dance in circles on the streets. She left the house early in the morning and made it to the train station. Spotting her favorite bench, she pulled out a little basket while whispering her dream.

Time stopped for Evelyne. For decades she used to catch the train early in the morning to passionately design clothes for a small family business. Leaving the suburbs to be part of the big city fascinated her. Friends and family used to come and visit, while going out to a nice restaurant was part of her weekly routine.

Then came the merger and what used to be a pleasant workplace turned into a nightmare. She hang in there for a couple more years before she called it quits. A few months later the recession hit and getting a job where she could use her talent and knowledge became almost an impossible thing.

Giving up was never an option for Evelyne, so she decided to start an endeavor on her own. She would wake up at three o’clock in the morning and bake biscuits. Now it was up to her sales skills to approach people and present her delicious, fluffy homemade biscuits.

She never made it to a big business but the money was enough to cover her monthly bills. Years passed and she got stuck in the treadmill of life.

The bench was her sanctuary; the basket full of biscuits her offering to life.

Train stations have something magical. Some people embark on a new journey while others exit a path for a few hours before they jump back on it the next day. Whether you catch the train or wait to get the next one, you always intend to get somewhere.

Evelyne’s dreams were engraved in the various colored biscuits of different shapes. The basket was merely a vessel keeping these absolute perfect delicacies fresh. It was up to each passenger to notice Evelyne and taste her homemade goodies.

Life is full of biscuits. Some are homemade, others not. Some are tasty, others not so much. It’s up to you to ignore them or pick them up. But remember this: There’s always going to be a wonderful soul giving you the opportunity to try them out.
