Voyeurs

We must all be voyeurs at heart but, surveying the waiting area, I see no one else people watching like me.

A middle aged woman scurries past carrying the group coffee haul.

A family of five desperately attempts to redirect the youngest before the situation descends to tears.

Then his eyes.

They meet mine across the noisy space. Maybe there’s a smirk dancing over his lips; caught in the act as we are.

Like tunnel vision, I see nothing else.

Someone pauses before me, an imprint on the outskirts of my mind.

I peer around the figure but he’s gone.

  1. Oh, that’s sad. Eyes meeting across a crowded room – that’s supposed to lead to something. I hope she ends up sitting beside him on the plane. Great story.

  2. Oh no. This brief moment of a meeting of minds, hear flutters a bit, and then it’s gone. That’s so well described.
