In ten minutes, the bus was scheduled to leave. Sitting contently by herself, Mica was pleased that the chair next to her appears to be vacant.
Hay salamat. Minsan lang ako makatiyempo na walang katabi. She thought to herself.
Taking advantage of the long weekend, she had decided to go back home to visit her parents. The trip to Legazpi City will take approximately 8 hours. Having no one beside her makes it easier for her to twist and turn as sleeps through the night.

“Excuse me.” Bingi yata itong babae na ito! Sayang, maganda pa naman sana.
