Ètienne -part six-

Meet me at the graveyard gate at midnight Amanda had said before she walked away. Ètienne had rushed home forgetting all about her plans for the day. They were going out.  Amanda and herself.  In the middle of the night. You couldn’t explain the kind of rush Ètienne was feeling but for one thing, she wasn’t scared at all.


Ètienne cooked dinner for herself but couldn’t eat a thing. She put the leftovers in the refrigerator and sat down on the couch, looking at the clock each and every minute. After about half an hour she decided she had to do something to make the time pass. It was six hours left until midnight. She put on the TV on a high volume and went to the bathroom to take a shower. Ètienne liked to have the TV on because it made her feel less lonely. The water was hot and when she was done the whole bathroom was steamy. She wiped the mirror off and looked at herself. She wanted a change. Something bold and brave.


A haircut, she thought as she went out to the kitchen in just her robe. She looked in every drawer and found a pair of scissors in the last place she looked. Without hesitating she closed her eyes and cut her hair off. She opened her eyes slowly. It was all uneven but it was done. She went back into the bathroom and looked in the mirror. She trimmed her hair into a short do. It looked good she thought and giggled…
