When it's winter and the Suns ended
its shift way too early. My teeth were chattering after a long day. I'd been
studying from 8am, it was
well past 6pm now. I hugged my coat
around me tighter, my bus stop
was a long power walk away. I
don't like acknowledging
it, but it's
scary to be out at night. I
popped my earphones in and was comforted by the music. Ah,
the cold dark amongst a hundred
other strangers is bearable now.
I came across a red light, I
stuffed my hands in my pockets
as I tried to stay warm while staying still. I don't remember what I was doing exactly after that. Probably mouthing
stand taller than I really am.
But then you appeared. Oh how happy I was when I realised it was you. At first of course I had to hit you, you
can't spring up on me like
that! You know how I get.
Huddled together you walked me
to my stop. I held your hand
inside my pocket. It
was a short time spent with
you, but definitely the highlight of my day.
