Sarah is average. She can't complain... Average is ok... Right??? She is of average build, of average height. Her features are average... Average nose.... Average mouth with lips painted crimson red... Her eyes are dark... Nothing really stands out on her exept for the clothes she wears. She always wears the best. Sometimes she had on pants... sometimes a dress... sometimes even, on special occasions, she wears a gown.
She is lucky. She has everything she needs, someone to do her makeup, another to dress her in pretty clothes, even a hair dresser. She has people all around her fixing and fussing over her til she is just right. Her hair changes often but she likes her white hair with bangs the best. It hides her eyes so people can not see her cry. She should be happy... right??? But she isn't. She knows she should be greatful for her life but she is sad.
People walk by her and stare. She can hear them whisper. What are they saying? They point at her and laugh. Does she have spinach in her teeth? You're not supposed to point at people. It's rude and very impolite. Someone told her that once. Who was it? No matter... all Sarah knows is that it hurts when they laugh. It makes her sad to know she isn't pretty in their eyes. Why does she care what those people think?
So here she stands. Right back where they can see her, and laugh at, her again. It will be a long day. There will be many people looking at her. She should close her eyes so she can't see them. But her eyes won't close.
Her opened eyes see someone watching her from behind. It's HIM again. WHY did they put her next to him? He never says a word to her... just stares through her, like she's not even there. He's average also. Average build... Average height. Sort of handsome. Plain features just like her. Today he too wears a white wig with bangs. Is he sad too?
She should say something to him but her mouth is froze shut. So she stands. Next to him. And they stare out at the people passing by. Alone in the store window. Afraid to move. Afraid to speak. Afraid of even, each other.
