    Equilibrium By Betsy Miller Emily is a recently divorced woman

    Equilibrium
    By Betsy Miller

    Emily is a recently divorced woman who stops off at a diner one night and finds herself making a connection with a man over soup.
    Betsy Miller has once again proven what a wonderful writer she is; the details are superb in this short story making it easy to envision the masterpiece that Jim and Emily have created together. The make your own soup idea is very unique and having two people bond over the experience is very unexpected.

    A brilliant story of choice and want

    Emily wants to feel happiness again. As she takes a break from the refuge of her small apartment, she walks into a new diner, Jim’s House of Soups. Being the only customer, she receives personal service from Jim himself. Heexplains the unique menu items, particularly the Made to Order soup. The two of them together build the perfect soup, which he prepares for her personally. Throughout the entire process, there is a pleasant tension between them.


    As he brings out her soup, other customers eye the special soup and request the exact same thing.


    Do Emily’s choices have any power or weight? Will she get what she wants?
