The cool night breeze caught the edge of my skirt causing it to billow. After some time had lapsed, I found my voice.
“Why are you still here?”
Zhuang Xu and his room mates had also tagged along to send Ah Fen off. I hadn’t paid any attention to them the entire time so I was confused as to why he was stuck here as well.
His eyes flashed. “I was standing behind you. Since you couldn’t board, neither could I.”
His words sounded very much like he was blaming me. I relived the embarrassing memory of being jostled off the bus and couldn’t help feeling apologetic. “Sorry.”
“You should say ‘thank you’.”
