One side of the head had white hair; the other side had brown hair. The woman was bending over a light brown paper shopping bag. “It’s here. I found it.” She looked up at the other woman. “Don’t take things that don’t belong to you.”  The voice sounded harsh, almost like a cat hissing. “I didn’t. “ The other woman’s eyes stared at her. “I found it and I was going to turn it in before I left the building.” I am done with all this. At least, I wish I was done with all this. She didn’t say this out loud. My life. I don’t like how this makes me feel. The first woman saw the older woman’s green bag. In a minute, all the contents were all over the floor, the dog food, the water, everything. “Help! Help!” The older woman yelled these words. Nobody in the room moved. “Do you think that if I had really taken your brown bag I would have stayed here?” She picked up her stuff, put it in the green bag and walked out the door. “Stupid.” Somebody yelled to her back.
