We were visited by the Harmony & Rhythm band at the lounge tonight. They're currently playing in Suzhou, a city 45 minutes by train from Shanghai, and they went to Shanghai for a day on their off.
After work, Brice and I went to their table to talk with them for a while. Then we remember that we have to get our ordered food for supper from the restaurant's kitchen so Brice got up. I got up a few seconds after. I saw Brice going to the restaurant, I think 10 meters ahead of me. By the time I got to the restaurant's entrance, I saw her turning at the corner. But I was wondering why I never heard her walking on the wooden floor or I never heard a sound of her high heels whereas mine was as usual noisy as it knocks against the floor. I just ignored it. When I got to the counter, I saw our food in 3 separate paper bags. I was looking for Brice, I asked the waiter "have you seen my co-singer?". He said that he didn't see anybody except me. Thought that maybe he just missed Brice passing by, maybe Brice went inside the kitchen to get something (ie. tomato ketchup, extra fries, etc). But I already brought the 3 paper bags and went back to the lobby where Marlou and our friends were waiting. I asked them if they have seen Brice, I was thinking maybe she took a huge turn from the kitchen. They said no, Marlou even told me that maybe Brice was still inside the kitchen. Right after that, we saw Brice coming from the pantry in the lobby lounge. I was sooooooo shocked! Then I told the whole story again and she couldn't believe it. I was so sure that it was her because we were wearing the same costume. I am just not sure "what" I saw, but it still sends shivers down my spine until now.
I was told that Tuesdays and Fridays are the "dark" nights. Or maybe my eyes were just playing some tricks on me. Or maybe it's "the others" who were playing tricks on me. Whatever that is, I leave it to God, He knows best.
