138. Scenes from the Second Seat on the Right

Friday, January 16th, 9:00pm
Dillon (and Zoey)


Dillon sits at the window. Zoey takes the seat beside him.

Dillon: Hey.

Zoey: Hey. Aren’t you a bit young to be on the bus alone at this time at night?

Dillon: My mom’s sick.

Zoey: Oh no.

Dillon: And I have to go home to my step-dad. He’s drunk.

Zoey: Are you going to be okay?

Dillon: (shrugs) I dunno.

Zoey: Is there a friend you could stay with instead?

Dillon: Yeah. But he lives the other way.

Zoey: Do you know his number? (pulls cell phone from pocket) I could call him.

Dillon: I’ll be okay.

Zoey: Well, can I give you some money to take another bus?

Dillon: (hesitates) S..Sure.

Zoey: (hands him $3 in coins) Are you sure you’ll be okay?

Dillon: Yeah. Thanks.

Zoey: My stop’s coming up. Do you want to come with me to talk to the bus driver? He can make sure you get where you want to go.

Dillon: Sure.

They get up together.


Next stop: Saturday, January 17th, 11:00pm
