VOLUME 1 - HYPERON
"The other side of the mirror"
March 15th., 2023
It rains. The street clock shows 18:59. A car passes in the street spraying water. A rumble of distant thunder is heard. Inside the London Café, some people feel safe from the weather elements. The reflection of a young woman is seen in the glass of a window. She sips her coffee and looks at the clock outside.
Inside the café, hands open an agenda, where it reads, "19:00 - Barbara". Another thunder is heard. The young woman closes the agenda. She wears a small hat twisted to her right side, and a Prussian blue dress with long sleeves, a high beige collar and buttons. The gloves are standing up to her purse, on her left side. Another thunder and the door opens. A tall woman, in her early 40s, gives her overcoat to a waitress. She looks around and in the direction of the young woman. She starts to walk towards her. The young woman feels the apprehension increasing.
- Angel dear!
She stands up and kisses the woman's face, greeting her with some unease.
- Barbara, I'm so glad.
Barbara sits, putting her purse aside and taking her gloves off. Her dress in dark velvet shows a ruby pendant at the end of the collar. Contrasting with Angel's manners, she exudes confidence. She looks at Angel and smiles.
- Hm, you look great as always, honey!
