A Night At the Movies

I love this... It was a little after six in the evening. I first spotted her standing in a crowd of people at a street corner, waiting for the crosswalk to change. She was probably in her mid-forties and a little on the plump side, but still curvy, with short, curly brown hair pushed back behind her ears. She was dressed for an office job in a nice black suit and skirt. Probably just getting off work, ready to hop in her car and head home after a long day pushing paper and answering phone calls. The light changed. I blended in with the crowd that was leaving the mall and followed her across the street, discreetly keeping a few paces behind her. I expected her to turn left towards the covered parking lot with the rest of the group, but she surprised me and continued straight on to the movie complex. She got in line behind a couple of giggling teenage girls. I got in the line behind her. The girls got their tickets and wandered off to the concession counters. The woman stepped up to the cashier and opened her purse. One please. She said, and handed over a bill. The cashier smiled and gave her a ticket and some change. The woman tucked the money back in her purse as she wandered off. My turn. I stepped up to the window and waved at the woman's back. I'd like a ticket for the same show she was going to see
