New Friends

Sam sat on the shaded bench just outside the pharmacy door, his thoughts impatiently searched for cool places to escape the sweltering heat.  A few thoughts settled on the bench next to him but the others were busy tumbling about on the sidewalk around his feet.  With closed eyes, he watched them as they came and went by their own volition.

 

“Hi,” came a sudden bright voice next to him.

At first he ignored it, believing it was his own mind, but feeling the bench shake a bit his thoughts scattered in all directions, disappearing into the cracks in the sidewalk.  Sam flinched and opened his eyes, startled that someone was sitting next to him.

“Sorry.  I didn’t mean to scare you,” she said pertly. “Were you sleeping?”

“Ah, No.  You didn’t scare me.  I was just thinking about stuff, and you, surprised me,”  stammered Sam.
