1ST PLACE YOUTH CATEGORY
While I was waiting for the bus to come, I saw an old man walking with a cane. When he got to the bus stop, he sat on the bench. He asked me what time the bus was coming. I replied, “In 19 minutes.” And he began to say “19 minutes” while looking down at his phone a few times, as if he was contemplating if he wanted to wait 19 minutes for the bus to arrive. He said he lived close by. He told me if I saw him walking I could laugh because I’m a nice person.
