It was a month before her 18th birthday. It was a sunny afternoon at the terminal when a young lady sat on the bus, excited to go back to her hometown after the stressful summer classes. She longed to get some rest from the hustle and bustle of the big city and breathe some fresh air.
Growing up, I was a socially awkward kid who spent a lot of time playing by myself. However, my childhood has never been boring because I enjoyed drawing comic strips and crafting entire worlds out of nothing. Unlike my siblings, I never had a natural flair for art and my characters were usually stick figures, but I didn’t let that stop me because I just loved breathing life into imaginary people.
