Antique Edwardian Gold Asprey Pencil Pendant in 9k Gold

His hand began to cramp after writing so intently for so long. His palm slid further and further down the page, slightly smudging the graphite as he wrote. He didn’t stop writing, even when the café lamps dimmed, signifying closing time. The barista didn’t seem to mind his presence as she swept around him, gently setting stools onto tables so she could mop away the dust of the day. She refilled his coffee cup with the leftover dark roast but he was so intent on his notebook he didn’t notice. When the town clock sounded at midnight he finally looked up. The barista was finishing her work, paying him no mind. He looked at his table-scattered pages and dispersed detritus. He gathered his belongings and left a generous tip before slipping out the door into the night air, contemplating his leftover thoughts he had still to write.
