Everyone was beyond different here, harder to read perhaps but this man before her, he was even more confusing than the last. There was an ocean of sadness behind his eyes and she felt her brow furrow with sadness for whatever his story must have been, she wished to wipe it away with her fingertips but could not and would not until she could help him.
She chewed upon her bottom lip and examined his choice in wording, the way he clasped his hands together and twisted them as though he could wash something clean and off of them. "Yeah, I'm new here too." She smiled small in hopes of brightening his day, maybe a friend was all that any of us would ever need in this world, someone to listen and someone to care. She noted the way he rubbed at his eye quickly, hoping that it went unnoticed and so she opted to avoid the subject, "where are you from?" She asked, "I'm from Oklahoma" and there it was again, another smile.
There was something about Beth that was always optimistic, always happy, anger or sadness was short lived within her fragile body, her heart was much too full and open, willing to better the world to focus on anything other than joy and love. "I'm Beth by the way." She extended a hand to him, wondering if he might shrug it off as many before him had, but in her book, manners went a long way.
