People-watching game 22 – Creating a backstory

people watching

Make up stories about the lives of others.

For example, if you see a middle-aged woman talking to someone on her phone, you call her Karlijn and she is talking to her husband Jeffrey. It’s their wedding day and she can’t wait to see him, but he’s getting weird with Karlijn’s younger sister, Marieke.

Marieke had always been jealous of Karlijn. Karlijn was always the prettier sister, the smarter sister, the more popular sister. You get the idea. Since childhood, Karlijn has always been the favorite, and now she has hooked this beautiful man: Jeffrey. Jeffrey was handsome, smart, funny, and had every quality that dating books say you need to find in a man. Karlijn and Jeffrey were married at a young age but they soon found out that they were not suitable for each other. Karlijn wanted romance, but Jeffrey was a workaholic lawyer who never had time for her and was always too tired for sex.

The cheating started at a family reunion. Karlijn soon had to go home to relieve their babysitter. Marieke and Jeffrey were left all alone. Marieke took her chance and passed her number to Jeffrey and told him that he could call at any time. She took his hand and pushed it against her leg. Jeffrey, a serial cheater, knew what time it was. He called Marieke the next day and they agreed.

Ben was born nine months later. Marieke also had a husband of her own, so she pretended it was his child. He had no idea what was going on. Fortunately Karlijn had no suspicions.

And the day of Karlijn and Jeffrey’s wedding day was there. Karlijn was at the supermarket buying pasta, ground beef, and tomatoes to make Jeffrey’s favorite meal. Her best spaghetti with homemade tomato sauce and meatballs, her grandma’s recipe. In the line at the till, she called Jeffrey and said she loved him.

Jerry was in the car on the way home. At one point he noticed that he was close to Marieke’s house. He thought: let me surprise Marieke. He double checked that her own husband’s car was not there and rang the doorbell. Marieke was in the living room. She was reading a magazine. When she opened the door, he kissed her immediately. Before she could push him away, two unfortunate things happened …

Karlijn just passed and Marieke’s husband emerged from the living room. With one fist, Jeffrey lay on the floor with a broken nose. Karlijn parked her car, rushed to the house and demanded to know what was wrong.

It was quiet. Nobody said anything.

“I saw what you were doing, and I’m not stupid, Jeffrey, tell what the fuck you were doing with your tongue in my sister’s throat!” said Karlijn. “The thing is, she came to me,” Jeffrey said. That was enough to get Karlin’s blood boiling hot.

“Karlijn, I am your sister!” Marieke shouted in vain as Karlijn left the house. Karlijn turned around again, looked straight at her and said, “Now no more.”

Tips to avoid being noticed when people watching

Look like you are doing something. So bring something to read or write, or bring something else you can do while watching. Sunglasses are also very smart because it makes it difficult to see that you are people-watching.
