Going Home - School was over, time to go back home.

Extracts from this document...


GOING HOME School was over, time to go back home. I gathered my things and packed them in my bag again and headed for the bus station just a road down from where the school is. After about five minutes a bus passed and I boarded it quickly because I could see more people making their way to the terminus. Luckily I found a seat just behind the driver's seat, it was the last one.

    As in "King Lear", a family crisis is dealt with, and the ideal surface for family life is perverted.
