Chelsea had just walked in her regular charity shop. She just loved the mix-and-match effect of all those hopeful things thrown together, the ghosts of their stories floating on the air. She went straight for the bookshelf (a girl can't possibly have too many books). She couldn't believe her luck: a Post-secret book! She opened it without thinking, and there it was. A small, checkered piece of paper with a message scribbled in blue pen: "To the girl with the yellow coat, you make my day everyday on your way to work". Her heart skipped one, two, three beats. She looked around, anyone of the people in the shop could have written that. Was the note in the book before it was donated? Was the book an old possession of the girl in the yellow coat? She cautiously left the book back in its place, not to break the possible magic. She took an old Virginia Woolf instead and carried it to the cashier. The guy behind the desk (a University student, surely) smiled at her, commented on the nice weather and sent her off. Just outside she bumped against a young girl, not much older than herself. And no, she was wearing no coat. But her shoes were yellow. And her earrings. With all the butterflies rushing in her stomach, she followed her hunch and looked throught the shop window: the cashier was blissfully ignoring a lady, smiling and looking out.
