The lonely passenger

It was time to go home. Past nine PM already and almost no more motorists in the road. Passengers of public transportation were only few. Oh, a lonely night! I rode the jeepney. At first, we were two, and then my only supposed companion alighted already. It was still around five minutes before my stop. The cold was air as it touched my face…too bad with some dust. It aggravated my allergic cough. All throughout the journey, my barking served as the music inside that jeepney that happened to be no stereo unlike most public vehicles in Metro Manila that makes the roads quite noisy. Finally, I reached my destination. Oh, it was actually for another ride. Luckily, the jeep was full. It was not completely lonely after all.
