Three people in a cafe

The first thing to notice about the girl sitting at the table nearest the door is the strong scent of coffee hovering around her which, when linked stain on her t-shirt, hint at tragically spilled coffee. She’s dressed very much like a student; her style is current but the garments themselves are all either cheap or worn with age. On the table before her are two cups – one empty and one half full and still steaming – as well as bundles of notes and an open laptop . . . but the notes seem to be untouched and the laptop has lain dormant long enough that the screen has gone dark. The girl ignores these and instead pursues a novel with familiar cover art that features a steam train, occasionally shooting looks of concern at the untouched work load.
