Hampton Roads Writers
The story takes place on a long bus ride between two cities. Two strangers are sharing a seat. Each one secretly hopes to get something from the other. For example: one of them wants a job or money or a place to stay in the city where they're headed. The other one wants love or a one-night stand. Neither of them mentions directly what he or she wants. They pretend to make casual small-talk, but each one is actually trying to manipulate the conversation in order to reach his or her secret goal. Write the scene. What happens next?
