I woke up this morning and decided to dress for the weather, I found my favorite tan-ish turtle neck, a pair of blue ripped jeans and dirty white converse.
I tucked my braids behind my ear grabbed my bag and left the house. On my way to school I felt someone following me but every time I turned around they were gone.
I didn’t think anything of it and continued on my way. I just couldn’t shake the feeling that there was someone right behind me but after too many times of turning around to nothing I decided to let it go.
“You’re just being paranoid Amanda” I told myself. “There’s nothing there, Halloween is coming up and you’re just freaking yourself out” I convinced myself.
It worked, I was beginning to calm down and then I saw her.. braids tucked behind her ear, tan-ish turtle neck, blue jeans and dirty converse. It was like looking in a mirror only I wasn’t looking in a mirror. She was there, looking at me.. waiting for me to say something. So I did.
What do you say to .. well .. you? I took a deep breath, looked her in the eyes and said “nice shirt”.
