An Unforgettable Ride
"All aboard," the mentally and psychically exhausted bus driver summoned the assorted, weary passengers onto the waiting bus.
They formed a line and ten souls clamored aboard the Jefferson bus line headed to their destination. A squalling baby interrupted pleasant conversation among the adult passengers.
"Shut that brat up!" An angry male voice called from the back.
A buzz of commotion flooded the bus. The baby's cries grew louder. The young mother tried to sooth the upset infant.
'Alright, everyone just calm down," the overworked bus driver ordered.
The passengers stopped chattering as the bus lurched forward. The last sound heard was the crying baby.
