"so there i was right" Ash said, having been up a few hours alright, well before most people thought about getting up. he wore a white t-shirt and a black leather jacket, worn, faded jeans. "im sitting there, watching his ugly old woman trying to hobble along" he stood in front of some younger kid, having caught him on the street. "and what do i realize?" he starts laughing. "its Patrick, he's dressed up as his grandmother" the young kid starts laughing as well. "see" Ash said. "i might be clueless at first, but eventually i get wise to whats going on" he lost the smile then, and grabbed the guy by the front of his shirt and pulled him in close. "there is a school a block away from here, and this is a high traffic area, and i know your slinging. i catch you around this area again with that crap, and im going to beat you senseless.. you feel me?" Ash asked, getting a quick nod. "good, now take off" pushing him, the idiot dealer turned and booked it out of the neighborhood. running his hand through his short hair, shaking his head in annoyance, he drove his hands into his pockets and started walking, hitting the bus station ten minutes later that was a couple blocks over, he checked the map to see what bus number to take to get to his Community Service gig, he then checked the time and sat down.. he was going to be late, no matter how much he worked it out, he was going to be late.
sitting on the bench, waiting for the bus he leaned back, and pulled out his earbuds, connected them and soon had a song playing through his phone. he'd been with his buddies, he usually hung out with them but that night they decided to get a little drunk and go nuts, he went along just to be back-up in case he was needed to help carry someone, little did he know he'd be caught while his buddies took off, apparently not that drunk since they scattered like roaches in the light. so he was arrested, sent before the judge and blah blah blah, he now had over a months worth of community service to do. of course he could have gotten time knocked off, but they wanted him to give up the others, but he wasnt a rat, not when it came to his friends, he might be pissed that they'd screwed him, but that didnt mean he'd narc on them.
when the bus finally arrived, he stepped on, and sat down just as Imagine Dragons- Thunder began playing as the bus made its stops and pick ups, soon the bus was full and heading along. it was 10 o clock by then. "shit" he mumbled to himself, first day of community service and he was already going to be ten minutes late.
