It didn’t fit, and yet it belonged here.
The chair on the opposite side of the table was the same as the others, varnished wood with a latticed back. There wasn’t a single painted chair anywhere else on the premises.
It was however a lady’s chair, a chair of some renown and reputation, one with a special power, though sceptics laughed and said it was all utter tosh.
Hundreds of women had sat in that chair, shared their hopes, dreams and tears over coffee, lunch or an ice cream sundae with their friends.
No-one could explain it, none knew when or where the chair had actually originated, it was just there, almost as famous as the bistro coffee-house it belonged to.
It may have been seen as a last resort to many, but it had never failed.
Any woman trying to conceive only had to sit in this chair and within a few weeks would find themselves with child.
It was known locally as The Seat of Miracles.
