The Bus Stop

Posted 03-01-2019 at 10:52 AM by aliasfinn


The only time I rode the bus to school was during 7th and 8th grade because we moved a lot and school was always within walking distance.
One morning as I was walking to the bus stop I saw a body sitting up against the bus stop sign. It was a kid I knew that rode the same bus and he was snoozing with a big bag of cupcakes next to him. Usually I was the first one to show up at the stop, so I woke him up to find out why he was there so early.
He traded me a fruit pie for my peanut butter and jelly sandwich and told me his mom kicked him out of the house that night. He said he didn't have any place to go so he went behind a department store and got a big box, about the size of a refrigerator, and dragged it down into the woods behind the store near a creek and planned on sleeping in it.
He was just about to doze off when he heard an animal trying to tear into it. He screamed, climbed out and took off running. He said he spotted a Hostess truck parked behind a grocery store and climbed in the unlocked rear door and started eating cupcakes till he fell asleep.
The noise of a trash truck woke him up so he climbed out and wandered around the neighborhood hiding from cop cars until he got so tired he decided to wait at the bus stop.
A couple of days later we were cutting through the woods to go to the pinball place and he showed me the box he tried to sleep in. I couldn't believe the size of the teeth marks in it, looked like a crocodile had been gnawing on that box.
