The Stranger on The Bus

by PenFairy
As the clock strikes 6 p.m., I stretch my tired body and let out a sigh....Finally! I am out of this hell-hole called office!

Like a elephant-sized rat, I maneuver through the office cubicles, trying my best to be invisible. Praying my boss will not set his eyes on me.

When you have a boss who has issues about those who leave on time, it is really difficult to escape at the exact time.

It is not my fault I am super efficient!

Mission accomplished! I managed to slip out the door and race to the restaurant to grab a meal. Not a day I want to cook (unless I want to burn the kitchen - NOT a good idea to cook when I am stressed - Learned from a nasty experience).

Carrying a bag full of carbs, I race to the bus-stop and managed to get the last available seat.

As I was scrolling through the Facebook newsfeed, this guy stood next to me and out of the blue, he asked me "Does your phone have any games?"

I was pretty shocked. A complete stranger ( really cute guy I may add).

"Err...ya..I do have some games."

He straight away grabbed my phone and started to go through my phone finding for the games.

I was taken aback. Ok. I had no time for these kind of nonsense.

I tried to grab my phone.

"Let me show you. "

But he was not quite ready to let go.

As he moved from one game to another, he said, " You have really lame games."

I ain't a friendly person in general, so, you can imagine how relieved I was when my stop came and I was finally able to grab my phone from him.

As I disembarked, I thought to myself

"If he was a little kid...probably 8 year old, I would have totally smacked his brains out. Lucky for him. Especially because he was cute!"
