And I swear if I can't figure out a way that Character A (waiter in a cafe) will actually befriend Character B (main character of fic) when they've just met and Character B is on vacation- therefore not going to stay for very long- so that I can get to the actual Main Plot of the fic, then I am going to go crazy. Ughughughughugh.

There's no real reason for Character A to even speak to B past taking his order, even though he'll probably end up eating at that cafe every day he's there.(right near his hotel, and has very good food in his opinion), and I really need them to spend time together somehow because it's essential to the plot. Blah.

Having worked in the food service business... If you are good at what you do, you always find a way to lure the diner/customer into a conversation. This starts out as info-digging because you want a better tip. A good waiter/waitress is like a psychologist... You can read a person's mood from a mile away.

Hitting on just the right topic of conversation will make Character B divulge more about his life. Especially if the service person (Character A) has had a similar experience.

This might lead to a spark of familiarity. They realize they have been in the same place, maybe at the same time. Fate.

Maybe? D: lol

Oooh, that might work. Character B is very, very shy and self-contained-ish, though... but this helps, certainly. Thanks!
