The slow moving and yet unreachable person.

The main character is in desperate need to find a specific person. This person is his only lead. While he’s doing something unimportant and is heavily in thoughts, this person (usually a woman) suddenly stands in the streets! Not far, and not close enough to recognize her clearly.
