Dreamed 1984/2/1 by Wayan
Dusk. I'm walking up from the foot of New Brunswick Drive toward the house I lived in through my teens. I'm peering in lit windows, hoping to spot my Soulmate. (As if I'd do a thing, if I did see her!)
Two teenage girls are behind me, one short one tall. I'm uncomfortable that they can see me but I can't see them without turning round. But I can hear them--talk, giggle, then sing a little song: the Brownie, Girl Scout or Campfire Girls theme song.
On the front lawn next door, half a dozen teens gather, smoke... and giggle as they sing, mockingly, half-seen in the dim dusk light:
"Siiiiing Around the Campfiiiiire. Jooooiiiiin the Campfire Girrrrrls."
I'd lived there four years. They'd never done that before. I lived there four years more. They never did it again.
