Amelia had been waiting at the bus stop for what seemed like an eternity. She was running away from her stepdad who started molesting her.

The bus arrived. The driver opened the door and let her in.

“Sir, I don’t have any money, but I have this necklace…”

“Miss, it isn’t worth a bean. Please get off my bus.”

“But, sir…”

It was at that moment a goateed, middle-aged man from the back of the bus intervened.

“I’ll take care of it,” he told the driver. He then looked at her with the kind of look she had known before.
