She saw it, but didn’t believe it. No buses had run here for nigh on twenty years. Pulling to the berm she stopped as the door opened, releasing a man with a silver lunch box who tossed a wave over his shoulder. Fixing his eyes on her he smiled and made his way across the road. Leaning in the window he planted a kiss on her cheek.

“Hi ya doll! On time as usual!”

She screamed. This would have been normal twenty-five years ago. But she had dropped Bud at the bus stop then, and he, and the bus,  had been missing ever since .
