The Last Piece

Sound of laughter between many noises.

It’s a pizza place.

A pizza is slid onto a table seating two people. Their hands reach for the pieces.

The pieces get over soon leaving few crusts behind.

One last piece remains.

There is a silence and their hands keep signalling each other to take the last piece,

“Go on!” a hand signals

The other hand turns it down and signals, “No, you take it.”

“It’s fine, I am not hungry…”

“No, you take it!”

And then the hands are folded as a final statement.

The last piece remains between the two folded hands.

It’s a pizza place.

A table is silent in the bustle.
