FWOC- Defunct

Holden looked sadly at the screen. “268 due to depart in 7 minutes.” It was the last that would ever leave this station.  Ever since they had built the new bus garage closer to town, they had been rerouting all the old lines through that one instead and little by little, his position in life...
