Who Are You?

by: MrsRadke
"Ugh!" I grunted as I chucked my pencil onto the tile floor. I placed my hands over my face in frustration from my assignment. It was to read a certain amount of pages from the textbook, then answer the review questions at the end of each chapter.
The few passages that I happened to be reading were things that had to do with Mythology, which I absolutely understood nothing about.

I heard the door creek open, then the click of the lock indicating that my roommate, Aqua, had arrived.
And for those of you who are wondering, no, she is not a mermaid. Her parent's grew up in the seventies, and they were part of the peace movements and civil right and everything. Basically they were hippies and gave her that name, thinking it was normal, I guess. Although it does fit her perfectly, considering that her eyes happen to be just that shade of blue.

"Hi!" She yelled at me as she threw something on the floor, it sounded like a plastic bag.

I slid my hands down my face and whipped my head around to look at her, "hey....." I said as I exhaled loudly.

"Guess what I got?"

"What?' I asked her tiredly.

"Pizza from Antonio's!" She yelled excitedly with a grin. I attempted to smile back, but it didn't quite work out. She scrunched her nose in confusion and came over to sit on the top of my desk, "alright, what's wrong? Antonio's is your favorite!" She said while throwing her hands up and slapping them down on her thighs.
I groaned, "it's not your fault..... It's just that I gotta finish this assignment by Tuesday and I have absolutely no idea how I'm supposed to do it." I complained.
She looked at me and patted my back, "it'll be okay. You just need to take your mind off of it for a while, you're putting too much stress on yourself," she said quietly.

"Well, what is there to do, even?" I questioned.

"What isn't there to do, girl! It's a Friday night on Labor Day weekend. There's tons of parties around here just waiting to be attended! Or if you didn't want to do that, we could go to the mall, or the movies...." She drifted off as she thought some more. I pondered her words, the parties and movie didn't sound so inviting to me, but the mall seemed like the perfect distraction.

"Let's do that."

"Which one?"

"The mall. I wanna go now." I told her.

She nodded and smiled at me, "lemme grab my keys."







Westfield Mall







It took us a while, but we eventually found a parking spot by Macy's. We hopped out of the car and slammed the doors behind us.
We trudged through the dark parking lot and to the brightly lit, double-doors. There were a few guys standing near the entrance, smoking, so I did my best to ignore them.

"Whoa, are you ladies free tonight?" One of them asked us. I paused and gritted my teeth in annoyance, "free, not desperate, dude." I told him with a sarcastic smile. His friends made those immature 'ooooo' noises, which made me roll my eyes. I held open the door for Aqua as we went inside.

"I haven't been to the mall in forever." I announced as I took in my surrondings. Everyone was bustling around with multiple shopping bags in one hand and either a Starbucks or a child in the other. The scene made me laugh slightly.

We walked through Macy's without looking at much, everything was so expensive there. We left the store and strode over to Charolette Rousse, which was directly across the way.
We entered the extremely busy store, making sure not to get trampled by the women who couldn't see over their heap of clothing items they were carrying.

"C'mon, let's go check out dresses," she said with a smile as she grabbed my hand and towed me toward the array of racks. She immediatly got started by sliding the dresses left and right, trying to find one she liked.

"Here, go try that on," she instructed. I shrugged since there was no point in arguing with her, and reluctantly went into a dressing room and shut the door.

When I came out I examined myself in the 360 mirror, spinning around and trying different poses. Then I saw Aqua come up behind me, "I was wrong. I don't like it," she said as she looked at me up and down.

"You don't? I kinda do..." I said thoughtfully as I continued looking at myself.

"What do you think of this on me?" She asked as she held up a light blue dress that had a lot of ruffles and lace, "well go put it on and I'll let you know." I said laughing.

She shook her head in amusement, "very funny, Skylar. I'll go put it on if you find a new dress."

"Fine," I agreed. Now that she brought it up, it did look kind of funny on me.

We both walked back into the dressing rooms and changed.
I finished before she did, so I went back out into the hectic shopping area where, for some reason, clothes were all over the floor.
I climbed over them and went back to where I was before. The hangers screached as I moved the dresses aside to find one I liked, and it seemed especially loud because everyone else who was near me was doing the exact same thing.
Finally I found a dress I thought would look at least somewhat decent on my body. I went to grab it, only at the same time the person next to me did. Our hands touched and I immediatly recoiled mine from the extremely cold touch of the other person. It seemed rude, but it startled me. I glanced over at the person to see a woman who wasn't much shorter than me, with spikey black hair and a pale complection.

"Sorry," we both said at the same time, but for different reasons, I presume. We smiled at each other, and let me tell you, she had a breath-taking one at that, it even made me some-what jealous.

"You take it, it's more your color anyways," her voice chimed as she spoke.

"Oh, well. Um, thanks...........?" I said awkwardly as I scrutinizied her perfect face. Her smile slowly dropped as she watched me continuously stared at her, although she didn't comment on my odd behavior.
I wasn't intentionally trying to freak her out or anything, but she looked so strangely filmiliar.......

"This is gonna sound really weird, but do I know you?" She suddenly blurted out to my surprise. I was a bit taken back, point one from her thinking the same thing I was, and point two from her bringing it up so abruptly.

"Call me crazy, but I was just thinking the same thing," I said dumbfoundedly.

"No way!" She exclaimed. Even if she was pretending, it was pretty good fake enthusiasam. We stood there for another minute, looking at each other and smiling. I was deep in thought, but my mind was drawing a blank on who this mystery woman might be. I shook my head in frustration, "whatever. One of us'll figure it out sooner or later and miss the chance to tell the other."

"I thought that only happened in movies," she suggested. I shrugged, and turned away from her, I was never the best at having conversations with people.
I weaved my way through many shoppers and returned to the dressing area where Aqua was hogging the large mirror outside of the changing rooms. She didn't see me coming, I'm not sure how though. I tapped her shoulder, she whipped around to face me, "oh hey! Find anything? Oooh, that's cute...." She gushed as she tugged the dress out of my hands and held it up to my body. I did an exaggerated vanity pose to make her laugh, which she did.

"You gonna try it on?"

"Nah, I think I'm just gonna get it. If I need to I'll return it."

"Mmkay," she replied, handing me the dress back.

I had to push past a few people to get to the end of the check out line, but I was quick about it this time.
While I waited I rumaged through my purse and got out my wallet so I would have the money ready by the time I made it to the front. But of course, me being me, had tons of credit reciepts blocking my cards. I ripped them out forcefully, dropping some things on the ground in the process.
I sighed as I bent down to pick them up, but speedy, pale hand beat me there.

"I got it," she said with a smile as she handed whatever it was off to me.

"Thanks," I grabbed the paper she hand in her hand.

I scoped it out, noticing that the items were two pictures. One of my little brother, and one of my grandmother when she was my age. I smiled slightly at her memory. She died when I was young, so I barely remember anything about her.

I glanced back up at the woman, who was holding clothes in her tiny arms, waiting to check out as well.
I looked back down at the picture, then noticed something I hadn't before. She looked a lot like my grandma...... It was very strange, the resemblance between the two.

I kept looking up at her, then down at the picture. She realized it and gave me a confused look, "something wrong?"

My eyes widened as I bit my lip, "......... Who are you?"
