Tormented Dreams [No. 3]
Again it occurred. She was there, but now her face was there and I knew who exactly it was; however, we weren't how we used to be. We were how we are now, strangers with a previous and haunting past. I saw her multiple times throughout the experience and each time I tried to figure out what to say in order to get her attention, each time I had failed and had to leave.
She was working in a retail consumer area and everyone under her was bothering her for advice on their customers. I guess that she was a lead for the company and she had a lot of power over the place and therefore she wouldn't have enough time to speak with me. She looked thirsty so I went and obtained a couple of diet cokes and a diet doctor pepper, but when I handed her one, she disagreed with the choices given in front of her and instead asked for a Pepsi. It was like I didn't know who she was anymore. A young fellow came around the corner and was handed the diet coke instead because of her disdain for the drink choice. I left the area a bit frustrated and had to cool off.
I ran into her mother and her sister as they were shopping around the area and since they were like strangers as well, they asked me about my personal life and what I was doing here. I immediately snapped back without answering other questions with, "why don't you ask your daughter?" directed towards the mother. I don't believe that they ever really enjoyed me and if they could've avoided talking to me, they would've.
I watched her from afar trying to understand everything that had changed between the last time that I saw her and now. Had her emotions changed, or maybe her outlook on life? Is she more willing to deal with humankind, or is she still fearing others? I don't understand anything from all the memories that torment me.
