This is a continuing story. To read subsequent entries go here As I Sat on the Bus.
It’s the last day of school before summer vacation and instead of feeling happy as I sit here on this bus I am feeling kind of scared. My big sister Roxanne graduates on Saturday. She starts her new job downtown on Monday. I’ve never spent a summer without her watching me.
I know, I know, I always complained about her being bossy and said I didn’t need no babysitter but the truth is she protected me.
She protected me from the kids on the block, she protected me from momma when she had too much to drink and she protected me from Daddy when he came to visit.
I’m gonna be 15 in three weeks; I guess it’s time for me to grow up.
This post is in response the writing challenge As I Sat on the Bus.
I like this. I can feel it. Good job.
You want to write you should join in. If not this, certainly the Friday Fictioneers. 100 words based on a photo prompt..you can do this!
I’d love to write, but I freeze when it comes to ‘having to write’. Besides, I can barely keep up now! I’ll leave it to the experts. 🙂
Pfft..we are NO experts. Some of them…IDK where they come up with that garble..some of them..are like gold.
You know what, if you don’t play along why don’t you just draft. You don’t have to hit publish. It starts on Wednesday and you have like a week to post..or not. I have read your stuff, you have talent.
I won’t nag you but I hope you will consider it. Try it, if only for your own entertainment. 100 words is the challenge. I dare you.
We’ll see, little miss dare me 😀
Lol..it’s all I’ve got. 😉

The story of so many kids riding the bus these days I am afraid.
