It was fall again, Jared's favorite season. He really loved the other seasons: Winter because he loved snow and how quiet it made everything, Spring because of how everything came back to life and glowed in bright colors, Summer because he loved swimming and working at Camp Wandsorth and with the kids. But Fall was something else altogether. He loved leaves changing and crisp mornings and sweaters... but most of all, he loved pumpkin spice lattes. They were his secret guilty pleasure.
And he found himself hiding away in a coffee shop just so that he could enjoy one in peace. It was still September and the temperatures had reached sweltering the day before, and would probably reach them again today, but Jared didn't care. He huddled in the corner with a book and a nice hot pumpkin spice latte, sipping and enjoying and getting lost in the story.
