BECCA
October 23 2009

HER MANE IS BECCA. SHE LIVES JUST ON THE OPPOSITE SIDE OF THE COMPLEX I LIVE IN. SHE SEEMS A BIT ON THE SHY SIDE, QUIET AND FOR THE MOST PART ELUSVE, AND NON -INTRUSIVE. SHE HAS STOPPED BY MY APT. A FEW TIMES, TO BORROW A CUP OF SUGAR, ETC.
HOWEVER, THERE ARE TIMES WHEN CAROL SEEMS WITHDRAWN, WHISPERING GENTLY, AND JUST PLAIN SCARED.
BECCA FIRST CAME TO ME SHORTLY AFTER I WROTE ABOUT THE MAN WHO SHOWED UP AT THE APT, POPPING UP OUTSIDE OF THE BALCONY, ASKING TO BUY A CIGARETTE. QUITE FRANKLY, HE GAVE ME THE WILLY-JILLY'S AND I TALKED TO MY HUBBY AND NEIGHBOR ABOUT IT. SOMETHING DIDN'T SET RIGHT. CALL IT GUT INSTINCT OR WHATEVER, IT JUST DIDN'T SET RIGHT.
BECCA SHOWED UP AGAIN TODAY. I CAN FEEL HER REACHING OUT, I AM JUST NOT SURE WHAT SHE IS REACHING OUT FOR. FRIENDSHIP MAYBE, BUT THE STORY STILL DOESN'T SET RIGHT. THERE IS MORE HERE THAN MEETS THE EYE. ESP SINCE HER HUBBY IS SITTING IN COUNTY LOCKUP FOR A LONG PERIOD OF TIME. AS TO THAT REASON, SHE HAS YET TO DIVULGE IT.
I WANT TO HELP BECCA, HOWEVER THERE IS STILL THIS GUT INSTINT THING THAT IS EMBEDDED IN ME SO DEEP. WHEN ONE HAS THE PARAMORMAL EXPERIENCES THAT I HAVE HAD, THEY HAVE THE TENDENCY TO BE WARY. ESPECIALLY UNDER CERTAIN CIRCUMSTANCES. TODAY, SHE SAID SOMETHING THAT COMPLETELY CONTRADICTATED WHAT SHE HAD SAID YESTERDAY WHEN SHE SHOWED UP. SHE DOESN'T SEEM TO HAVE MANY FRIENDS, AND I DO NOT THINK THAT ABUSE IS AN ISSUE HERE. SHE SEEMS TO LOVE HER HUSBAND VERY MUCH. HOWEVER, I STILL CAN'T GET RID OF THE FEELINGS SURROUNDING THIS WOMAN. MAYBE IN TIME THE WHOLE STORY WILL COME OUT. UNTIL THEN, I HAVE TO REMAIN A FRIEND FROM A DISTANCE.
