The scene at a shopping complex

 

It was Saturday. There was a good movie playing at the Cineplex on the top floor of Terminal One Shopping Center. Cathy, Shelly and I intended to catch the 12.30 show.

We met at the entrance to the shopping center at about 11.30 a.m. The complex had opened about an hour and a half ago and already it was teeming with people. Most of them were youngsters like us. We were out in town to have some fun and enjoy the weekend.

On the ground floor was a huge stage that was being prepared for some charity show later on in the evening. Workers were busy decorating the backdrop and setting up the props for the occasion. Someone was testing the public address system and the sound coming from the giant speakers was very loud. So we moved away from the stage and rode the escalators up to the top floor where the Cineplex was.

A long queue had already formed in front of the box office. Cathy volunteered to get the tickets. Shelly and I agreed and we gave her our money. So while Cathy joined the queue, Shelly and I went over to the food stalls and bought some popcorn and drinks.

The crowd on the top floor swelled and the queue grew longer. we were glad that we were early. Judging by the length of the queue, there was a possibility that some of them were not going to get tickets.

Cathy still had some people in front of her, so we decided to visit the shops nearby. We wandered into a bookshop. The shop was having a sale and many items were offered at 20 to 70% discount. I looked at some novels but decided I could not afford any of them despite the discount. Shelly picked up some stationery but decided to put them back when she saw the long queue at the checkout. The movie was going to start soon and there would not be enough time to pay for the stationery.

We left the bookshop. It was already 12.25. So we walked to the entrance of the Cineplex. Cathy was already there with the tickets.

We gave the tickets to the usher at the entrance. With popcorn and drinks in our hands, we walked into the Cineplex to watch the movie.
