I straightened my back, threw the wet towel in the trash can and walked out. With my head held high, feigning a confidence that said: I’m an independent person who doesn’t mind being alone for the rest of my life, I marched between a row of tables and as I did so, a high-pitched ringing sound went off in my ears, like yesterday. I wondered why it was happening again and if it had anything to do with the premonition. But when I neared a dimly lit booth and glanced at a pale, dark-haired guy, my whole facade fell by the wayside.

He looked like a heroin addict–skinny, and gaunt, but that wasn’t why I paused at his table. I paused because he sneered at me with disdain and mouthed my name, stunning me. Then I saw a yellow laser beam flash across his dark iris in a swiping motion. Horror ran through me. I rushed past his table, hearing his menacing laughter behind me. I shot a look over my shoulder, and he stood in the aisle, turning in the opposite direction, still laughing.

When I rounded the corner, I ran into Nathan. He caught me by the shoulders. I swear the world had shifted me into its fun house, and I wanted to pound my way out, like what my heart was trying to do to my chest.

“Are you okay?” he asked. “I was getting worried about you.” He took a closer look at my face. “Why do you look so frightened?”

I hesitated on the words that desperately wanted to come out of my mouth while quickly weighing whether to tell him or not. Pressing my lips together, I took his hand and pulled him over to our table where our food was waiting.
