Hurry, need to cross the road before the amber light goes red. My heart races, just made it. Things need to be in order. Wake up have a shower, three minutes, breakfast at 8, crossroads at 8.15, same people waiting to cross.

Today I overslept, calamity, never been this late before. I stare at the ground, trying to calm down.

‘Hi, did you press the pedestrian button ?’

‘Er, no. I’m  late today, in a muddle’.’

I look up at the woman who spoke to me. She has a big smile, hazel eyes, so calm. I feel hypnotised.

‘Do you go this way, we can walk together.’

A smile creeps over my face. Today is  different.
