The Empty Glass #FridayFotoFiction




As he looked out of the open door his eyes fell on the empty glass. A lone straw sticking out of it, it sat there on the table. Forlorn. Just like him.

He knew what it felt like to feel empty. He had lost a lucrative contract, the one his entrepreneurial venture had been banking heavily on. His newly realized dream of starting a company would have to die a premature death because of this loss.

Just as he was looking at the empty glass and slipping into the comforting niche of self-pity a passing waiter whisked the glass away. It was washed at the bar, dried till it shone and it soon held a brand new drink.

His drooping lips curved into a smile as hope lit up his eyes. Only an empty glass could be refilled, he realised. he may have lost it all, but he would start again, he vowed.
