  • “Could it really be her?” Jerry thought to himself. He stood still for a long while, hearing his heartbeat like a drum. It was almost as if the cafe moved on around him in fast forward and he was stuck in place. He wasn’t sure how to proceed, what his next move would be.

  • Jerry and the woman jumped in synchrony. It was Jerry who realized first that the woman was mirroring his every move. Jerry reached out for her, as she reciprocated the motion. As their hands began to almost touch, it became evident that Jerry was staring into an alternate world.
