Windows by Sara

Windows. They’ve always fascinated me. You can watch the whole world pass by in seconds and no- one would even realise you were there. They’re all too caught up in their own lives to notice. At least that’s what I see through my window. I’m plenty aware of the rumours about me. The boy in the window, who hasn’t gone outside since the incident? I have what’s known as agoraphobia, the fear of going outside. My brother and I got jumped in the street one night. It didn’t end well. Since then I haven’t left the house. I did try, but I couldn’t even make it past the front gate before I started to panic and break down. Just in case you haven’t seen a twenty-one-year-old guy have a panic attack. I let you in to a little secret. It wasn’t very pretty. So, I now sit by my window staring up at the sky. Watching the pretty colours blend into a sunrise. I watch the birds awaken and the streets fill with people rushing along to work. So here I am like most days staring out my window. I check the time. Seven thirty-four in the morning the time when she walks past. Looking closely, I see her face among the crowd. I smile at her. The only thing is this time she smiles back. I watch her walk towards my door. Taking a piece of paper out her bag, she leans it against the door and scribbles something down before posting it and leaving. Getting up I walk towards my door to pick up the note.


To mystery boy,

Has anyone ever told you its rude to stare?

If you feel like answering give me a call.



Huh, maybe my life isn’t over after all.
