Writing Wednesday- the bald man at the roadside cafe

Writing Wednesday- A different piece of something

An ageless bald man steps out of a white pickup truck and walks into the roadside cafe. He takes a quick look around at the blank faces sitting at checkered tables, and then steps back outside to wait. He pulls a small bundle from the front passenger seat, and unrolls the contents on the hood of the truck. A needle pricked into a fingertip as he checks his sugar level. When the task is completed, he rolls his supplies back up. Just then a sedan with blue license plates pulls up beside him. A smile crosses his face as two young boys climb out of the backseat and they all go inside.
