"Beyond the Sky" Chapter 1

Chapter One

The hot, sweaty public bus was getting over crowded, so Caitlin pressed her forehead against the frigid glass window to keep cool. She hated taking the bus to her Mom's house, but ever since her parents got divorced it was the only choice. She pressed her body up against the side of the seat, allowing the man next to her who was quite large to relax. She flipped over her wrist to view the time on her watch, straining her eyes, she read 8:35. Only one more our to go, and she could get out of this germ generator. She took her phone out of her pocket and scrolled through the playlist and clicked on her favorite song by Vampire Weekend. She put her head phones on and laid her head back against the seat, trying to force out the number of people with greasy, flea & lice infected hair had rubbed on the headrest. She inhaled deeply and closed her eyes, letting the music speak for her.

When she woke up, she turned to see if the man who was sitting next to her was still there. But he had left and had been replaced by a boy. He looked about Caitlin's age maybe a little older. He was stretched out, his arms were hoisted up by the arm rests and his almond shaped eyes were closed, and his shaggy black hair shielded his pierced ears. A small painted canvas laid across his lap with a small box labeled "Nathaniel's Oil Paints" And like Caitlin, he was in a mode of pure tranquility from his music.

*This is just Chapter One! I know its not good, but I decided to give you all a piece of my passion XD
