It was a bright, warm morning. I ran down the hill ready to embrace the entire world. A flock of ducks was bouncing on the emerald waters. There I saw her….. She was standing up straight, throwing stones into the water, scaring up the ducks.
“Why do you do this?” She didn’t turn; I could only see her back, but there was something arrogant in the movement of her shoulders. Unconsciously I mimicked her movement; something drew me towards her. I flung my backpack over my shoulder, and walked over to her. “Hello?” I began. “Good day, isn’t it?”
“Good day? Go and enjoy it then,” she replied, not even trying to face me. The girl’s manner resembled my own, and it was embarrassing. “I….I just…. thought you look very much like me!” “No, I don’t! Go away and stop bothering me! You’re such a nuisance!”
