She walks like she’s being followed, slow and fast, turning right four times and then left, watching her back all the time. She sees a cheat from a mile away and wonders why he’s cheating. Look at his beautiful wife, after all. She wishes she could look over her virtual shoulder, to see if they’re all copying her.
Tension is her middle name.
Is that something burning?
Are the homeless really spies?
She’d have her groceries delivered if it wasn’t for that weird guy who works at the store.
What was that noise?
The bugs are coming in.
