“Anna? Anna! Stop daydreaming.”
Adrianna snapped out of a fog to the sound of a demanding and slightly high pitched voice. Her green eyes staring blankly at her friends nicely tanned face for a moment before she remembered they were having lunch in the park. She sighed softly while rubbing her eyes and pushing hair curly brown locks back from her pale face.
The park they were in was fairly small and quiet, it was one of the main reasons they visited this one. It had more trees and less walkways than most of the other places they had scoped out for their daily meetings, and they were usually the only two there.

Adrianna chuckled as she said a quick goodbye and headed towards the coffee shop. Her mind drifting back to the dream she had been desperately trying to remember. It was the same dream she had every night, though she was left with nothing more than a pair of light grey eyes upon waking each morning. Eyes that were as cold and empty as their color suggested. Eyes that were burned so deeply into her memory, she was sure she would recognize them if she were ever encounter their owner.
