Great imagery in this story by Jack Brownlee. Imagining the bus depot and the life of the protagonist was effortless, and the contrast between his external life and his internal feelings help draw in the reader. Congratulations on your first publication - much deserved!

I love that the bullied busdriver was there to give dignity to one worse off. He stood with the full power of who/what he was and chased away the thoughtless boys. Well said, author.
