Racing past the point

Mind Over Matter

Must be very hard for you huh, I asked.

Yeah! Think about it. I race on your bike and just before I thought I had her on my track, she jumps the signal and damn! I’m so screwed at home. He said with an angst reddened face.

Oh good Lord! What is even love-at-first-sight? Did you even look at her properly? What if she had freckles or a scar or say a squint? said Lea seated on my right.

Oh sorry. Ark this is Lea. Lea this is Ark. I introduced them both to themselves. Ark, I have to warn you, Lea is one big preacher. She has her opinion on everything in the world. I signaled Ark with a read-between-lines gesture. Ark just frowned. I was glad I could finish my line. With Lea around, the last time my vocal cords processed my entire mind-request was way back in the life where we weren’t friends.

I wish I could draw a few dotted lines connecting my mind to the dialogue-box over my head that said ‘Ark, if only you read my mind!’ I spoke to myself in the head.

Lea continued from where she left off. So Ark, this whole seeing-the-girl thing, isn’t it complex? Oh c’mon, you don’t even know where she’s going. Do you even have a clue about the best damn thing in her? She pitied Ark. Lea, I read a lot about the extra-terrestrial influence on a human-being. The moment I saw her take my bike, I thought she must be ‘the one’. She must be a person with a vision. A person who wants to do what she really wanted all her life. Think about how desperate she is. To jump a signal just to go get...something..? She might well know how serious the consequences could be. Ark responded.

So your parapsychology taught you that jumping a signal insinuates that the person is a visionary? She can easily be a stupid person who fears a ticket for having raced past the signal. You wish to end up with a girl with a crooked sense of thought? Lea retorted.

Well! fast-paced love for a fast-paced life. Ark re-retorted.

While Lea excused us for a minute to take her phone call, Ark said, Dude that is one seriously interesting girl you have with you. That was fun. To think of having a discussion while playing with a person’s strength or weakness….ok weakness…?.is fantastic to get past crappy mood.

Guys, I have to take leave. Ark, looks like the girl did seem like sending you a message like those ESP freaks do. Lea left.

So, a ticket that will be heavy on your pocket! I should never have told Anita about the new book in store. I said. Yeah! Anita is so done for good for nipping my bike. And yes, you go screw...and have fun with Lea for being a darned listener. I mentioned ‘my bike’ in my little paranormal talk and she never noticed!
