253. Scenes from the Second Seat on the Right

Monday, May 11th, 9:00pm
Red (and Phil)

 

Red sits at the window. Phil takes the seat beside her: he is out of breath.

Red: Are you okay?

Phil: Yeah. I almost missed the damned bus. (does a double take) …I mean the darned bus.

Red: I wish I had. I’m really starting to hate taking the bus. I had a car once to go to my Grandma’s house in. But since it broke down I’m having to deliver the goodies (holds up basket) by bus and by foot. Last night I almost got eaten!

Phil: (stares) You hate the bus too… wait, did you say eaten?

Red: Yeah. A guy came out of the bushes and tried to bite my neck. He was wearing all this glittery stuff. Kept calling me Bell-something. I might not even be here if some crazy brunette hadn’t shown up and chased him away with a pointy stick.

Phil: Doesn’t sound very safe. What do you say to getting off the bus with me? I’m just going to get my car from the shop. I can drive you to your Grandma’s house.

Red: (sighs in relief and grins widely) Oh, could you?

Phil: I’d drive you there every night…

Red takes his hand. They get off the bus together.

 

Next stop: Tuesday, May 12th, 6:00pm
