I was on something of a roll but on completing this I'm not sure I've overstepped the mark slightly. I see what I'm saying clearly but I'm not sure whether it's because I already know the intention implied. If I have to kill this though ... I'm going to be upset!
This time the lemon girl did not approach the shop with her parents, instead, she meandered around on the pavement between the car and Candy Land. Still there though, the joy Tommy had found so infectious, so endearing. She looked everywhere except towards him, the edges of her intent forming an empty Tommy shaped space. And then, as if her carefully crafted mould had fallen away, revealing the true nature of what it concealed, she looked across at him. In lieu of the ground, he jammed his hands deep into his jeans pockets, tented them with hands eager to escape, to betray him, his own eyes now borrowing the edges of intent, defocused and indiscriminate.
