Horace Green walked into his favorite cafe like he did every morning of the week and walked up to Nina the cashier. Nina was a college student and worked at the cafe during the summer and Horace enjoyed talking to her." Morning Nina" Horace said as he smiled and gave her ten dollars " breakfast buffett please".

" Your usual huh!" Nina replied as she gave Horace his change back. " Plates are on the table, help yourself".

Horace sat down at his favorite table, picked up a plate and walked over to the big buffett table. Horace filled his plate with bacon, pancakes, eggs and a cinnamon roll. As he walking back to the table, he noticed a man sitting at a table eating just a english muffin and reading what looked like a bible.

Horace put his plate of food on the table and walked over to the table where the man was sitting. " Sorry to bother you" Horace said as he shook the man's hand " I was wondering why you weren't eating much with this huge buffett here".

" Because I'm feeding on the word of God" the man replied as he pointed at his bible " most of my food comes from the daily word of God".

" Oh!" Horace said as he went back to his table and began to eat his large plate of food.

The man walked out of the cafe with a smile on his face. Horace sat there and stared at his food.

A thought-provoking little slice-of-life; I hope Horace thinks about it, too. I think you meant "buffet", not "buffett", and "Bible" should be capitalized. I'd be interested in reading an expansion of this story, with Horace unable to forget the man in the cafe.

I agree with the previous comment..you have a great start to a really good story and maybe could take it further. You also might want to check your punctuation around dialogue some. Your character was intriguing and made me want to know him more.:)
