I was running late for the interview. I looked at my watch. 10:05.

Suddenly the bus stopped. This interview was crucial. "Why isn't the bus moving?" I asked loudly to no one in particular.

And no one replied.

I waited. It seemed almost fifteen minutes had passed. I looked at the watch. 10:05. Still!

And then I realized. The people around me were asleep. The driver and conductor too. The front of the bus was badly damaged. Another mangled bus stood nearby.

A collision.

I got down from the bus, not noticing my dead body lying in the seat.
