When roads cross

Harry's dad is dead and now he lives with his three younger siblings and his mother in a little house in the suburbs of England.
The family is a worker-family and the story takes place in the 60's-70's.
Harry's life is without meaning and he has a hard time finding a job to support the family. That is until he meet the daughter of the richest man in town.
Two different social classes and families, which loathes one another, have their roads crossed and every prejudice get challenged and love must take the ultimate test.


14. A cup of cocoa

 "Two cups of cocoa please"
"That will be 40 pence" Harry sighed relieved seemingly without knowing himself.
"Perfect!" He said. 
 Melanie looked as he took out his thin wallet and dug out 40 pence. She wondered whether this was all he had or if the rest of his money just lay at home. 
"Here you go" He said and handed her the cup after she had taken off her glove. 
"Uhm it smells so nice."
"Let's hope it tastes just as good."
It did. It filled her up with warmth and sweetness. How long was it since she had a cup of cocoa the last time?
"Thank you." She said. 
"You're welcome!" He said surprised. "It is just a cup of cocoa you know." He smiled thankfully anyway. 
"Yeah but not just this. For being asked into your house, for talking me into going back and for showing up again in front of my house. For eating pancakes with me and for this hot chocolate. I feel like a child." She laughed a little embarrassed of herself. 
"I do too."
 "How?" She asked surprised. 
"I feel like you take about 10 years of my age. I can't really control myself as I use to and now I serve you cocoa. I'm sorry if it is a bit weird all of this."
"Not at all. I'm having the best time in years." And she meant it even though they had only walked for half an hour and met eachother properly once before. 
Melanie could feel Harry looking at her for a long time. She turned her head and looked straight into his eyes for a second before they both pulled their eyes away again and continued walking. He did look rather nice in his worn leather jacket and with rumpled, red hair. Then Melanie glided her hand closer to Harry's and Harry took it in his without a word.
