Steve – next to me

As you’ve thought Jordan takes the seat next to you. You knew that he wouldn’t disappoint you.

»Hey, guys«, he friendly says.

»Hey ma’ man, good to see ya!«, you shout and raise your hand for a high five.

He smiles and gives you a high five. Of course he did. Why wouldn’t he?

»Hey Jordan«, Jasmine says and turns back to you guys. Her hazel brown eyes are fixing his.

»Hey Jasmine, how are you doing? It has been a while«, he asks.

You try to avoid it, but you start to stare nervously at him. Jasmine likes him and you don’t like that fact, although Jordan is like a brother to you.

Before she can respond to Jordan’s question the bus stops and a blond gorgeous woman in black hip clothes and black sunglasses enters the bus. She is carrying a black bag on her back with a red pentagram on it.

The bus continues driving and this, very fast.

She walks towards you guys without looking at the bus driver. Ones could hear the heavy metal music coming from her big black headphones.

You like Megan. She is like the cool, hot sister your never had and you know that Megan is feeling about it the same way. You know that she is a big Metallica fan. Just as you are. So you both have created you very own special way to greet each other by saying verses of song texts.

She ignores Jordan and Jasmine.

»Say your prayers, little ones«, you say and raise up your hand for a high five.

»Till the sandman he comes«, Megan responds and gives you a high five with a delicious smile. Yes, she is a person that you could entrust any secret. She never would disappoint you. You both came from orphanages, so you both feel a strong connection to each other. In the meantime, Megan takes a seat some rows behind you and relaxes her feet on the headrest of the seats in front of her. You can see that Jordan shoots a brief look at her.  You are wondering what’s going on, but decide to forget about it.

»Say your prayers?«, Jordan asks you with a sign of irritation on his face.

»Enter Sandman. Metallica«, you explain him happily and move your look out the window, observing the city buildings of downtown passing by. Moving closer to the outskirts of the city.

»Who even invited her?«, Jasmine asks with a sign of jealous and anger.

You open your mouth to answer again, as the bus suddenly stops and a brown beautiful women enters the bus. It’s Jessica. She’s wearing a red shirt, white jeans and is carrying a white trolley.

She looks gorgeous as ever, while smiling and laughing to the bus driver.

Finally she looks at you guys. By the sight of Jordan her smile turns immediately into a expression of pure sadness. She nods her head down, breaths hardly and moves forward to you all.

She first greets Megan with a little wink in exchange to Megan’s victory sign with her right hand. Then Jessica smiles at you and Jasmine, while taking a seat next to her.

»Hey«, you say, delighted by the sight of the young brown lady.

»Hey, honey«, Jessica responds to you and hugs Jasmine. Both start to talk about some casual stuff.

You start to think if you should talk to Jessica, just to get Jasmine jealous.

Should you?

Talk to Jessica or remain in silence.
