”That yellow one looks really good on you.”

“You think?”

Sarah turned around and tried to see how the sweater looked from behind through the mirror.

“Of course”, Lydia answered. “Becca, doesn’t it look great?”

“It does”, Rebecca agreed with one of her usual soft smiles. “Yellow is definitely a good color, and it will cheer you up.”

“What, are you suddenly psychic?” Sarah teased as she placed the sweater back on its hanger.

“No, just had a good feeling”, Rebecca answered and, as usual, turned her gaze slightly and studied the shop. Her friends had become used to her doing that from time to time, no matter if they were in someone’s private house or in a public place like this. Suddenly she turned around and started to flip through the clothes on one of the nearby racks.

“I’m going to try this on”, she said and held up a shirt that both Lydia and Sarah thought of as hideous; neon-green with pink stripes on the arms. Sarah eventually shrugged.

“Well, I’m done in here, so…”

“No, no, I’ll take this stall”, Rebecca interrupted and nodded at one of the stalls with its door closed.

“But that’s occupied”, Lydia protested. Rebecca did not seem to hear and placed her hand on the wood.
