The whole scene happened in a blur, for one second I saw Cassandra making eye contact with me and the next she was right infront of the guy. I stared wide eyed as the guy grumbled, shoved the aisle wear a lot of glass figurines were and moved past Cassandra, ignoring me entirely. I wasn't sure if my mouth hanged open but I was still very confused, I had never, in my life, seen someone, especially a girl stand up to someone that could have been a potential threat. That's right, he cuold have been dangerous and she just stood up to him like the only weapon he could have been carrying was a toy gun. I waved Cassandra down as I saw more customers come in, not wanting to make a scene I needed to know what happened without the whole store knowing.
"How in the world did you do that," I quietly exclaimed, "did it not occur to you that he could have been holding a weapon, a gun perhaps."
My quick remarks toward her were surely out of worry but more of worry for her than myself.
