As I Sat on the Bus #14: Roxanne Runs Some Errands

This is a continuing story. To read previous entries go here As I Sat on the Bus.

I took my lunch in the park today and began to read the book Ms.Senter gave me. It’s not a very fascinating book; in fact it made me kind of sleepy reading it in the warm sunshine. There are a lot of rules and words I don’t even understand. I suppose if I were in college right now I might be learning some of these words. I think the first thing I need to do is learn the vocabulary otherwise I am never going to understand the rules.

Ms.Senter gave me an extra fifteen minute lunch in exchange for stopping at the dry cleaners to pick up some dry cleaning. The cleaner was right next door to the drug store so I went in real quick and got me a pocket dictionary. I think that will help. I didn’t even need the extra fifteen minutes; I was back in plenty of time.

I saw Mary and Sally look at each other and roll their eyes when I came in. I am not sure why they would do that. I know the girls used to do that in high school sometimes when I would get chosen for special projects or help out the teacher but this isn’t high school so maybe it had nothing to do with me.

I don’t really care if the other girls like me. I have never cared about that. I only care about getting a good life for myself and my little sister. Sometimes I get sad and feel hurt but then I remember my goals.
Hey look, there is Sabrina now. She rode her bike to the bus stop to meet me today. I wish she wouldn’t do that, these crazy drivers will run her over. I won’t fuss at her though. She is probably excited to tell me something.

This post is in response the writing challenge As I Sat on the Bus.

  1. I am enjoying the character/story. Thanks for your contribution to the As I Sat On the Bus International Invitational – of which you and I are among the only brave contributors. It’s really become something cohesive for you.
