She kept her hands busy while her mind wandered, concerned for Desmond, concerned for his happiness and well being, and though she had no right to intrude into his life or personal affairs she could not help herself, it was the fixer gene within her, she wanted so badly for the world to just be happy and for peace and kindess to spread like a disease. Why was it that greed could take hold so easily, infecting the hearts of so many and yet peace and love was so hard to accept. Shouldn't it have been the other way around? Why was it that man often assumed the worst of themselves and the world around them rather than first taking a breath and giving everyone a chance, giving themselves a chance to be something more and do something more, the same with those around them. Why not give everyone a chance before you assume the worst?
And as she let her mind wander Desmond's hand slipped around her, quietly stealing a napkin to wipe at his mess. She made a mental note to wipe down the table after he left, it was a common occurance that someone would spill their coffee, she'd even spilt a few herself while handing the customer their drink, it was easy to do around here. His words brought her back to reality however and she furrowed a brow, and sighed heavily. She wanted to go after him as he made his way to the door but she had only just gotten back from her break and she still had two more hours before her shift would end so she sighed continued with her work, glancing in his direction as he hung his head and made a break for the door. She'd have to think this over, reconsider her words and maybe try harder to convince him that no matter his sins he still had it within him to be a good person, we all do.
In God's eyes every sin is equal, we all sin, no matter who we are, no matter how hard we try not to, we are all allowed mistakes in life, but no matter what God loves us. You're capable of good if you wish to be... Yes, she thought, that sounded much better, more persuasive, yet understanding at the same time without diving too deep into his personal life. Whatever his reasons were she did not care, what mattered to her was his happiness, everyone's happiness. She hated to see anyone down on themselves or the world around them. Next time she saw him she'd say that to him, definitely.
