Life's Unknowns

When I moved to Toronto, two of my friends from Dubai emigrated at the same time.

Our families decided to help us adjust to our new environment by sending us all to the same high school.

Somewhere between university and high school, we all went our separate ways. And I didn’t think much of it.

Last year I got a cryptic email from one of the girls, J, saying that she had been very upset with me for some time, but wanted to mend our relationship. Since I was unaware that anything was broken I sent a bemused reply saying, I wasn’t sure what I did, but I am sure we could work it out.

I never heard from her again.

Lately I’ve been seeing her on the subway; we apparently have the same route to work.

Today I get on and like a true subway aficionado, I hunt down a seat, and lo and behold there she is, bang across from me, and she obviously looks away. On the 20 minute ride to our stop, I think to myself, this is silly; I am just going to say hi. So as our stop comes up, I approach her, and she fakes left. But today I am determined. I wait for her just outside the car, and as she speeds past me, I tap her shoulder, at which point she breaks into a full fledged run.

I felt like an abuser she was fleeing.

It was mildly funny. Except now I am left wondering what the hell did I do?

Wow... That's really, really odd. I hope you get to the bottom of it. If not for anything, it should make for a good story.

Stop act like you don't know. Yuh used to beat her up in high school!!! lol! But seriously that was weird!

Is either you steal a fella from her, or she thought you did... cause I'm sure you didn't find hidden treasure her family left behind... or were you in a will?

By the way, they emigrated the same time as you... you know how I finicky. (^_^)

Leave her be. As far as you know, your conscience is clear. She came up with this mend the relationship crap and now she's running! Let her keep on runnin' and runnin' and runnin' like Forrest! Don't sweat it. You didn't all this time, don't start now that the psycho isn't sure what she wants to do about whatever it is you did.

Wow,she actually ran from you. That's some serious bad feelings she is carrying for you girl.

You should have ran her down. Now that would have been real funny. Maybe she would have started screaming frantically. LOL

You should have done it just for kicks. :)
