Their legs and feet felt frozen from standing in the cold for three hours. They limped away from the Macy’s Day Parade, thinking of what to do next with their day. Breakfast hadn’t been all that filling, so lunch was their next venture. They walked over to the Times Warner Center. It was a large, wondrous mall. Sadly since it was Thanksgiving, all the shops were closed. They found the bathrooms. He walked right into the Men’s bathroom as she waited in a line that was all the way out the door. She was still lucky at their timing, since when she left, the line was out the door and down the next hallway. He texted her from outside the bathroom explaining where he was. She found him quickly, ready to get away from all the people.
“Where do you want to go?” He asked, hoping she would have some idea. They left the mall to find the subway, thinking they would come up with something. He wanted her to see Times Square before they left the next morning. When they got there, several stops later, they emerged to something that amazed her. Times Square was so much different than how it was portrayed in the movies. There was a rush of people, walking past all the stands where people sold things for their lively hood.
“Do you see the ball that drops on New Years Eve?” She looked around, attempting to spot it. When she finally did, she yelped in excitement, grabbing him in for a kiss.“It’s amazing!” She exclaimed, looking around in circles in awe of the buildings and advertisements for Broadway shows. They walked to a open area, taking photos together.
“Where do you want to go for lunch?” He questioned, as they both looked around. They decided that all the restaurants that were there were places they could eat back at school. “Let’s get on the subway and we’ll figure something out.”
They rode on the subway for many stops, deciding lunch would be at the stop where the most people got off. As they stepped from the train, they walked out to find a place to sit down for a few hours and enjoy a drink and each other’s company.
