At night

I walked towards the lamp post where the bus schedule was posted and ran my fingers down the list to look for the next arrival-- 9:15 pm. I retrieved the cell phone from my pocket and checked the time. The wait was 20 minutes. I dialed home to see if T could pick me up. She agreed and said she would leave as soon as we hung up. I swung my backpack to my chest and pulled out my camera. There was enough light left in the sky so I attempted to take a few pictures. I probably shot six frames before I heard a car honk at me. It was T. I ran to the loading zone, got in the car and we headed home.
