An Empty Seat

As the bus pulled up to the stop right outfront of Gino's Pizza, I had a feeling this bus wasn't like any other I had ever rode in. All I wanted was to get home before my step-father. Doesn't look like that will be happening.

I climbed aboard the very crowded bus. Luckly I found a seat in the way back. I walked down to this seat and sat down. I waited for someone to plop down next to me. That kind of thing usually happened. You see, I like being alone, but the rest of the world doesn't really get that. It sucks, ya know?

I sat quietly, staring longingly out the tinted window to the town passing by. I wondered where exactly we were heading.
