It was a fine Sunday morning. Maria, Tess and Brooke were headed to the mall to buy clothes for Maria. It was her birthday. "I just don't feel like it's my birthday. I'm so bored" Maria sulked. But little did she know that her birthday was going to be anything but boring
. "Oh come on Maria, you'll have fun once we reach there. Plus there's a huge sale at Forever 21." said Brooke cheerily. 
   Tess squealed loudly at the word 'huge sale'. And loud enough to rouse a construction site watchman from his slumber. He wiped the drool from his chin and looked around to find the source of the sudden noise. Her squeal also earned her funny looks from passers-by. An old lady-so old that she practically had half her leg in the grave- gave them a patronizing look that clearly said 'youngsters these days'. But that didn't stop her from being her overtly excited self. Quite the contrary in fact. Her squeals became shriller and more pronounced, to the point where only bats could hear her.    Maria was still low despite the fact that her friends were high on serotonin. As soon as they entered the mall, the delectable scent of waffles and doughnut drifted to their nostrils.  Maria took in the sweet waft and felt slightly better. Maybe the day wasn't going to be so boring after all. As soon as they stepped into  Forever 21 they saw a mob of excited women gathered near the aisle labelled '60% Flat'. Two women were engaged in what appeared to be a heated argument about who saw the white top first. Two seconds later they started pulling each other's hair while screaming profanities at each other, while other women were busy picking out clothes.
   After a lot of hard-work, sweat and elbowing Maria finally managed to pick up some decent looking clothes for herself and managed to get out of the mob without a scratch. Many women had actually broken their fake manicured nails in an attempt to scratch other women who stepped in their way while picking out clothes.
   She headed straight to the dressing room area where there was a big queue in front of each  room. Maria sighed in defeat. But then she caught sight of a room in the corner and surprisingly no one was going in there. People walked by that room without sparing it a glance as if it didn't exist. Intrigued and delighted, she quickly made her way to the room and bolted the door.
   But as soon as the door closed, everything went black and the room started spinning. Maria screamed but she couldn't hear her own voice. She felt like she was going into oblivion. And then, she blacked out....
