A photo from last week.
When I got in to the bus today, I felt the eyes on me. Looking at me every move. I know what they were thinking. "Please don't sit next to me, oh please" I find seats all to myself. I take a glimpse to the other side of the bus. Two younger girls look at me straight in the eyes, then moving their eyes up and down. They don't even try to hide it. I stare back at them for a while and give them a smile. They suddenly turn away.
I'm off from school. I missed my first bus so I decide to walk to the further away bus stop, to pass the time. I'm half way there. A bus is driving past me. The driver looks at me like he's seen a ghost. I can see him looking over his shoulder many times. Why isn't he watching the road? I see someone waving in the next bus stop. The driver drives past. The person at the bus stop looks pissed.
I'm standing at the bus stop. I still have 15 minutes of waiting to do. The clock strikes one. From a distance I see a huge heard of middle school students heading my way. I start looking at the ground. It's an interesting ground, lots of small rocks and.. leaves. I lift my eyes a bit. 3 young girls are walking past me, side by side. Every one of those 6 eyes are looking at me.
I am searching my pockets for my phone. Sigh, still 8 minutes to go. I'm looking at the distance, like hoping for a invisible bus to take me to the land of the dead. Nothing's coming, not yet.
I'm looking at the sky, its' a nice weather. I wish I had my sunglasses, it's too bright. A car is slowing down, and it stops. What are you doing, you can't park on a bus stop. Cars engine is still running, they roll down their window slightly. The driver presses the horn, the guy next to him yells some weird noises, both of them have their eyes on me. I grin at them and flip them off. Some more weird noises and laughs. They roll up their window and drive away. In a distance I see the bus coming.
I get off the buss. I hate this small walk home. It's not long, but it seems to take forever.
Finally I am at the building. I take the stairs up to first floor. I hear our neighbors talking in the hall again. They notice me and in a glimpse of an eye, they are gone to their own apartments. I see the shadows moving in their peepholes. I get my key from my bag and open the door, and slam it shut behind me.. I drop my bag on the floor and walk to a full body mirror. I look at myself while turning and making faces. I whisper to myself..
It's ok, I would stare too
What a day.
