Cameron just stared straight ahead as he waited at the Customer Service counter. He didn’t look to the left, didn’t look to the right. Just straight ahead at the upper back of the man in front of him. A man he normally would have been taller than.
“Cam, come on… talk to me…” Kate said resting her hand upon his shoulder, which he shrugged off quickly. “This could be fun, you know?”
He remained silent except for a deep angry sigh.
One of the women at the desk called the couple forward. “Next!”
Cameron approached the tall black woman working the counter. At least he thought she was tall. It was hard to tell whether she was enhanced by a foot like the flight attendants since everyone now seemed out of proportion to him. He hadn’t felt this short since walking through the high school building on his way to French class while in 7th grade.
