That one night..

It was about midnight and I was on my way home, coming from a night out with some friends in the town. Had a couple of shots and cocktails and I felt not drunk but nice.I was surprised but grateful that I got a bus heading my way at this hour.

There were five passengers on board a young couple,a middle aged man with a baby and a old lady. I sat near the old lady and the bus took off, I found it strange that a baby and an elderly were out this late,but who knows,they could be coming from the hospital I thought.

I shifted my body to the side, closed my eyes and decided to rest for about 10 minutes,I could hear the couple giggling and whispering in the back sit and the old lady seemed to be dozing off. The man was baby talking as he rocked the child in his arms.

I don’t know what happened but I was sound asleep when I heard a lady scream my name, so I startled and answered but by the look of everyone it wasn’t any of them. The couple were kissing now and the man was looking at me strangely before going back to playing with his child,the old lady was asleep.

I looked at the driver but couldn’t see his face because of the darkness,I shrugged and closed back my eyes. A few seconds into my rest I took the scent of something foul like decaying flesh,I covered my nose and realized the scent was getting stronger. I opened my eyes to realize the scent was emitting from the old lady next to me.

Flies came from nowhere and began surrounding her,my eyes widened as I pulled myself away from her and closer to the window. I opened the window to let some breeze in and for some reason outside was foggy,I literally thought we were in the clouds. I rubbed my eyes to make sure I wasn’t dreaming,but the clouds remained.

“All you not seeing that?” I yelled looking unto where the road supposed to be, but I could see no road,no houses,no street lights just fog. No one answered me and carried on like they were not even hearing me.

I reached out to the bus driver for there was no way he could see where he was going,but the driver’s sit was empty . The bus was driving smoothly however there was no one at the wheel. I screamed and panicked and told the others that they was no one driving but they didn’t seem to care.

Then the road became bumpy and shaky and I quickly flew upfront took control of the wheel and pressed on the brakes. The bus came to a halt and the doors automatically opened and I flew out,as soon as I hit the ground I realized I was at my village and the fog had cleared. Have a good night said the driver as he took off.

I was left shaking and confused,and up to this day no one believes me.
