Eggs

Aheila's Drabble Day prompt this week is Seek, and the twist is the "find." You can find the rules at her blog.

Steven was searching. He'd sit in outdoor cafés, watching women as they strolled by, heels clicking, ponytails swinging, cell phones pressed to their ears. Sometimes he'd toss money on his table and follow one, watching as she window-shopped and then fabricating excuses to talk to her. He had plenty of excuses--and charm. 

If all went well, he'd ask her out. They'd date; eventually, she'd spend the night. In the morning, he'd ask if she'd cook breakfast; most would. And he'd wait, hoping he'd finally found the woman who could make his eggs the way he liked them.
