Bus Story: Watch Your Step on Friday the 13th

November 13, 2009

It’s a chilly and rainy morning. A young girl, maybe eight, traverses the damp aisle and hits a wet patch. Down she goes in a tumble of pink tights and sparkly hooded-jacket-thing. One of her gold Princess Jasmine slippers flies across the bus and lands in the lap of Yet Another Sullen Boy. He jerks as if bitten and tosses her dainty, shiny shoe back to her. His Sullen Friends wake long enough to snicker at him. She gathers herself and makes a hasty retreat to the back of the bus. Friday the 13th claims victims early and scores a double on the ole 54.
