I just saw this pretty bus along EDSA. It's wine red with purple curtains arranged like drapes in a rich woman's house. At a Jollibee earlier, a girl sat in front of this young couple who recently finished their meal. The girl called out to her mother, saying how she wanted to seat there (a booth) because "tapos na sila kumain o." The couple laughed fondly, while the mother admonished her daughter in the gentlest way: "Wag dyan, ikaw talaga." All the fondness, honesty, and innocence was too much for my black heart. I whispered a TY to the universe.
