When Lori and her young daughter entered the diner, she was overcome by nostalgia for the time when the family owned it.
Ten years ago, she inherited the diner after her mother passed away. Being unable to manage it on her own, she was forced to sell it to the highest bidder.
Looking around the place, nothing much had changed. The furniture and the family decor remained. It might as well be her grandfather cooking his signature omelet in the kitchen.
“Why are you crying, mama?” Little Abby asked.
“It’s nothing, dear. It must be my sinuses acting up again.”
