Doll-sized companions

When I was in High School I used to take the same bus home everyday. There was a woman who lived in my neighborhood that also took the same bus. I would watch her everyday because she always had “traveling companions” with her. She seemed to believe that she had several people with her, that I can only imagine were approximately the size of dolls.

Everyday the rest of the passengers and I would ride to our destinations without bringing attention to this woman. One day a group of kids from my school got on and sat near her. Throughout the whole ride they made fun of her laughing loudly the whole time.

I’ll never forget that day because it was more proof that humans are cruel when they don’t understand someone or something. I still saw her for a few years after that around the neighborhood. Every time I saw her I became sad because she was a reminder of the cruelty I witnessed.
