Even the aroma of fresh bread and cinnamon did not appeal to her today. ‘I am walking on sunshine’ playing in the store was ironic because as far as her soul was concerned there were dark clouds all around. She walks through the card section and noticed a young girl in tight jeans and a low neck belly top agonising over I love you cards. She gave the girl a wry smile as they made eye contact. Rita realised that had things gone according to plan, she might have been scolding someone her age to cover herself up.
As she made her way to the personal hygiene section she bumps into a burly man who scowls at her for been inattentive. She stared at him in anger before giving him a begrudged apology.
“Pardon” she jolted back into reality when an assistant asked if she needed help. “No I am fine. Thanks.” She gathered pace and flung the despised box of blue tampax into her basket and aimlessly grabbed some other essentials that she was not sure she needed.
As she made her way to the checkout, an old lady pushed a little comic book into her hand and said “Jesus loves you.” Rita wanted to fling it back at her, but thought better of it. The woman was old enough to be her grandma. She shoved it in her coat pocket and continued to the checkout.
