Mystery at the mall


There was this group of young people at the mall.  They moved from one spot to another along the promenades.  They talked in low tones to each other.  At times, some left the group while others joined it.  They were nicely dressed and didn't pose a threat but remained entirely a mystery.  I never did learn that they were doing or what they were all about.  And then they were gone.

As you can tell, the gentleman reclining in the foreground wasn't bothered by them at all!

Maybe it was class project. The man in the chair looks comfy.

They are all neatly dressed and with similar clothing (like the khakis). I suspect it was a class or some new trainees at a store in the mall or something similar. They sure don't look sinister to me.

So the mystery was that they were behaving themselves and made every one anxious. A strange sight for teenagers I am sure. MB

Teens like to meet each other in the mall!

The guy in the recliner sure has made himself at home so maybe he has kids and is used to to having a group of teens around.

Perhaps 'Victoria' knows, it appears she is fond of secrets...

Ah, yes! Well behaved teenagers, speaking in low tones! Heavens! What is the world coming to!?

I vote that they're part of a flash mob, about to sing love songs to shoppers, and their strength in number never quite made it.

Must have been some school project! The guy is great!

Dead to the world. Enviable.

Love it when young ones behave. Such a rare occurrence.
