After many entries we've decided on our SCOOP TEAM winner. Congratulations to Senamile Sithole with her lovely short story titled "My Journey to Town"
My Journey to Town by Senamile Sithole
I'm literally counting the minutes as I peek for time and it seems as though it's not moving at all. I'm on my way to town for shopping and I should be there by 07:30 and that is if the bus doesn't delay since it take approximately 120 passengers and by the time I get on it's fully packed so finding a seat is unheard of and this morning is no different. I have to stand in agony of having to keep shifting for more passengers while pupils push through us as they go make noisy crowds at the back and they'd repeat the same thing when we arrive in town because they apparently have other early buses to catch. No facial expression of mine could describe how daunting this is but I guess it's not half bad for everyone, they are in deep conversations and sharing laughs. I randomly laid my eyes on a young lady very attractive indeed, she keeps flicking her hair backwards and is chewing on a gum; by just one look at her and I'm certain she's narcissistic and probably a diva too. I pay more attention to her and I notice she's seated down while an elderly woman is standing right next to her and she's not even bothered to give up her seat, I clicked my tongue and looked away. We finally arrived and before I could sigh some one tapped on my shoulder "make way" she said; but why should I, aren't we all lining to get down? I did make space though and that elderly woman walked past however I was startled when I saw that young lady hanging on her back, yes she was paralyzed with no wheelchair only assisted by the kind and her mother was her only mobility. Humbled I looked on as they made their way towards the door. I knew I had judge a book by its cover and missed out on a touching story instead.
Keep sending through YOUR short stories and you too could be featured just like Senamile!
