The Bus Stop
 

 

At 07:00 o' clock in the morning while most people are on their way to work, Marvin would often go to his favorite bus stop and chat with those waiting for a bus. He would stay there until 9 and then go back to his house.

He was injured during the war, thirteen years ago, and is now a handicapped person living on social welfare. One of the things that changed in his personality is the urge to talk to people whenever he could. Sometimes, people would get annoyed and tell him to leave them alone but usually they would join in the conversation.

Each time someone asked him what line he was waiting for, he answered "306". But everyone knew that that line was no longer in service. Last time it was in service, was two decades ago, in the 1990s.

 

On March 5th, 2004 Marvin went to the bus stop as usual. There he met Agatha, a kind old lady. She would always welcome Marvin and never got tired of him.

"Good morning" she greeted him.

"Hello, good morning, Agatha. How are you?" said Marvin.

"Fine, thank you" she replied.

"You're waiting for line 17, right?" he asked.

"That's right" she answered. "You know, I admire your determination" she added, "You get up each morning, Sunday to Thursday, while no one forces you to do so, even during the winter. You are truly one of a kind".

"Oh stop it. You do it yourself, don't you?" he said and then asked "Where were you last week? I didn't see you here".

"Oh, I took my grandson to the kindergarten. His mother had to go somewhere and couldn't do it herself. She is very busy lately" she said.

Marvin was thinking about another question he wanted to ask but then he heard the loud noise of a bus engine. He looked to his left and immediately said "There's your bus, Agatha. Line 17".

"Thank you, Marvin. See you tomorrow" she said and got on the bus.

"See you" he said.

 

A few seconds later, a man came to the station and sat next to Marvin. Marvin didn't know him.

"Hello" said Marvin.

"Hi" said the man.

"Are you new in town?" asked Marvin.

"Not really" said the man, "I moved in last October".

"Is it the first time you're coming to this bus stop? What line are you waiting for?" asked Marvin.

"I… no" said the confused man, "Line 267" he finally said and took out a cigarette and was about to light it with his lighter.

"Can you imagine…" started Marvin, and the man looked at him with his eyebrows raised still holding his unlit cigarette in his hand, "In 2000 B.C. you would have to rub two stones together in order to produce a spark and it would sometimes take you over 15 minutes. But we don't have to do that anymore. Nowadays, you just use a lighter and produce fire in an instant"

The man felt like he was being attacked. He recovered within a few moments and said "Yeah, technology. Halleluiah"

"That's a nice watch. Can you tell me what time it is?" asked Marvin.

The man looked at his watch and said "A quarter to eight".

Just as he looked up, he saw his bus arriving. "Finally" he said to himself. He put the cigarette back in the pack and got onto the bus.

 

No more than 10 minutes later, two little schoolgirls arrived at the station. They looked shy and timid.

"Hi" said Marvin.

"Hi" the girls replied.

"Going to school?" he asked.

"Yes" they said.

"What grade are you in? First grade?" he asked.

"Second" said one of the girls.

"And already taking a bus on your own? How brave. I didn't like to take the bus when I was your age. Especially because I sometimes arrived home in the evening and I was afraid of the dark" he said.

One of the girls then whispered something to her friend and she said "No, that's line 306. It's not for us"

"306?" repeated Marvin. He looked to his left and couldn't believe what he saw. His eyes followed the bus as it got closer, slowed down and finally stopped in front of the station and the doors opened.

"I'm not gonna stand here forever. Are you coming in or not?" said the driver.

For the first time in a very long time Marvin was speechless. He got on the bus and the doors closed behind him.

He was never seen at that bus stop again.
