Dessert at the All Night Café
The empty booths along the front windows are upholstered in red and white Naugahyde. Twelve stools in a row sport the same fabric while in the corner is a Wurlitzer juke box with a full inventory of 1950's-1960's rock and roll hits.
Those who patronize the All Night Café meet the same man. He resembles the bald-headed man in the Mr. Clean TV commercials. He has a kind face with a friendly smile and each person drawn into the café receives a free meal or piece of pie and coffee.
The twelve in this story are regular people who find themselves in extraordinary circumstances. It might be a minor affair or a life and death situation, but it is a major tribulation at the moment in these people's lives. Each person who leaves the café, takes with them, for good or bad, a resolution.
In the end, the twelve meet as a group. They vow to remain friends and to meet at the diner every on the same night. They turn around for one last look at the diner and are shaken to their very core.
