I heard her yell before I saw her or heard her speak. When I finally figured out who it was, she whirled around and yelled behind her, ” Nobody likes you anyway!” Mid forties, angry, indistinguishable white.
The light had changed, and anyone who might have been her intended target was moving away from the rage.
What cruelty. Nobody likes you anyway. What a fucking thing to say. What a thing to think. To justify yourself with such belittling. I’m right because no one likes you… I knew it wasn’t me she was yelling at, but it took me back to somewhere long forgotten, far away.
