La storia riflessa

La lacrima di una ragazza cade in una pozzanghera come se fosse pioggia. La ragazza senza nome è in piedi guardando se stessa riflessa su quella pozzanghera mentre aspetta il pullman.

The tear of a girl falls in a puddle as if it were rain. The nameless girl stands looking at herself reflected in the puddle while waiting for the bus to come.

Comincia a piovere. La ragazza guarda su.

It starts to rain. The girl looks up.

"Ovviamente piove..."

"Of course it's raining..."

Apre un ombrello di fronte a sé per poi muoverlo sopra la sua testa e guardando la pozzanghera non vede più sé stessa ma una donna con 10 anni in più.

She opens the umbrella in front of her and then moves it above her head and by looking at the puddle again she doesn't see herself anymore and instead she sees a woman 10 years older than herself.

"Chi sei? bisbiglia la ragazza.

"Who are you?" she whispers.

La donna la indica con il dito.

The woman points her finger towards her.

Una macchina passa sulla pozzanghera buttando acqua contro la ragazza senza nome rovinando il riflesso.

A car drives through puddle throwing water towards the nameless girl ruining the reflection.

La ragazza guarda la macchina arrabbiata mentre va via e poi guarda di nuovo la pozzanghera e vede una donna di nuovo ma con un uomo e un figlio.

The girl looks angrily at the car that is driving away and then looks back at the puddle and she sees the woman again but with a man and a child.

La ragazza senza nome guarda la pozzanghera sorpresa piegandosi leggermente fino a quando l'ombrello cade in essa rovinando il riflesso di nuovo.

The nameless girl looks at the puddle surprised, she starts leaning slightly forward until the umbrella falls into it ruining the reflection again.

La ragazza prende velocemente l'ombrello e guarda di nuovo vedendo una vecchia donna sorriderle. Si guardano a vicenda per un po' fino a quando il pullman non passa sopra al riflesso e apre le porte.

She quickly takes it out and looks back at it seeing an old woman smiling at her. They stare at each other for some time until the bus slowly runs over the reflection and the doors open.

La ragazza guarda l'entrata del pullman sorpresa e lentamente entra.

The girl looks at the entrance of the bus surprised and then slowly gets on.
