Waiting for the bus and I hear a voice. I don't think they are talking to me. I look and a man is talking to me. 'Where did you get your trainers?' I tell him. I feel awkward. I'm looking up the bus times on my phone, so I feel rude too. I ask if he wanted some for himself. He talks about having had his for a while and he was looking for new ones. He seems nice, but I'm always a bit suspicious. I'm in Birmingham, people are friendly here I remind myself. He talks about hostels and going to visit his mother. The bus arrives. He sits down downstairs and I go upstairs. I feel weird. Should I have sat close to him and talk more? He says 'have a good day'. I smile and say 'you too'. I think he doesn't have many stops to go anyways. When I get off of the bus later he is still sat there and I feel bad. I smile and say 'have a good day'.
