Good things come to those who wait....

“See, that wasn’t so bad now. Was it Molly?” asked Andrei.


She slowly looked around at all the hustle and bustle of the platform at the station as people hurriedly made their way to work and appointments. She was so hungry. Her last real meal had been before leaving the house with Lucy the day before. Molly was really looking forward to this feast that Andrei had talked so much about on the ride over to East Putney Station. Molly still felt a little wobbly on her legs after riding the tube. As she had stepped off the train she had taken a few unsteady steps and then sat for a break to look around at her new surroundings. It looked quite bare compared to Richmond Park and Bluegate Pond but felt oddly familiar at the same time.

The streets were dotted with the odd tree and the pace of the environment was overwhelming. It felt much like the walk along High street that Andrei had taken her on to get to the train station. Andrei gave Molly a moment to absorb her surroundings and then led her eastward along the A205. The street was lined with food markets, restaurants and shops and upper level flats. There were so many smells wafting out from the various eateries that Molly was drooling at the thought of her upcoming meal... They walked to the corner of Oxford Rd when Andrei motioned Molly the two adjoining pizza shops.

 "This is a great spot!" said Andrei.

 "I am so hungry... How are we going to get anything to eat from out here?" Molly asked.

"You'll see." said Andrei.

They walked up to the front of the shop and Andrei told Molly to sit patiently and watch him.
