    Shay took a deep breath, looked around one last time and stepped onto the bus. She smiled and handed her ticket to the driver, who barely looked up as he waved her past. She scanned the seats, looking for an inviting opening. About halfway back she spotted an older woman with an empty window seat next to her.

    "Is this seat open?" She asked with a smile.

    "All yours dear." The lady replied, patting the open seat and smiling back.

    Shay settled in and stared out her window, taking one last look at the only home she'd ever known. She leaned her forehead against the window and let out a deep sigh.

    "Here we go..." She said under her breath as the bus started rolling.

    After a few miles of staring aimlessly out the window Shay pulled out her headphones, found some music on her phone and leaned back in her seat, closing her eyes in hopes of making up for the sleepless night before.

    Eventually the bus came to a jarring stop. Shay pulled out her headphones to listen to the driver.

    “Dallas Fort Worth.” He announced in a gruff, monotone voice. Several people got off the bus and several more got on. The lady next to Shay stayed put.

    She adjusted herself in her seat, put her headphones back in and closed her eyes again as the bus got rolling again.

    Shay passed the time by sleeping, playing on her phone and making small talk with her seat mate. Finally the driver mumbled the words she had been waiting to hear.

    “Kansas City.”

    She looked out the window while she waited for the first wave of passengers to get off the bus, not wanting to fight the crowd. She smiled when she saw a familiar face and sprung from her seat, headed for the door as quickly as she could manage.

    She grabbed her bags from the pile outside the bus and all but sprinted toward that familiar face, trying her best not to run over any of the several elderly people in her way.

    Shay dropped her bags and held her arms out.

    “Heeeeeeyyyyyyy!!!!”

    Raymond tapped Lamar on the shoulder and pointed down the block.

    "Look here man, that gotta be a customer."

    "Yeah?"

    "Shit, just look at him."

    The shoddy looking middle aged man stumbled up to them.

    "Where Casper at?" He asked in a demanding tone.

    "Casper ain't here no more. This our spot now." Lamar snapped back.

    "What you need homie?" Raymond asked.

    "I don't trust nobody but Casper. Where he at?"

    "He out man! You gotta cop from us or go without!" Lamar shouted, stepping toward the man.

    The man rubbed his hands together and looked around nervously.

    "Nah." He finally said. "I'm straight."

    As he turned to walk away Lamar stepped toward him with a scowl on his face.

    "Uh uh homie!" Raymond said sternly, restraining Lamar.

    Lamar threw his hands up and stepped back.

    "Fuck you and Casper muthafucka!" Lamar shouted, holding up both middle fingers.

    Raymond shook his head and chuckled.

    "What?" Lamar asked, obviously annoyed.

    "You gotta understand man, these people been dealing with Casper for like five, six years now."

    "Well he gone, we here now!"

    "It ain't that easy for people to just switch up like that. Casper had a customer base yo."

    "Well if they don't wanna cop from us now then fuck 'em. Why they like that pale muthafucka so much anyhow?"

    "For one he treated 'em right. Like customers. He a business man you know?"

    "How you mean?"

    "Well it's like with that dude. He trying to get our product and you was dogging him. You gotta treat 'em right. They gonna find somewhere to cop and the shit's all the same. Price all the same. What gonna make him come see you on payday instead of someone else?"

    "I dunno man?"

    "You. He gotta feel like you want his business and you gotta make him feel safe you know."

    "Yeah like a store or some shit."

    "Right. Exactly."

    "Why Casper get out the game?"

    "Not sure. LT just let him walk. Said he had a legit reason. Dude could sling though. We gonna be hard pressed to hit his numbers."

    "How he do it?"

    "Just treating people right like I said. He weren't no pushover though. I remember one dude was always trying to get a discount on the shit. Every week he'd be begging. One day Casper sold him a bulk at a discount. Had a hopper follow him home then Casper stole the shit back. Dude came back and Casper told him he lost his privileges."

    "Dude didn't cap him?

    "No. Everybody knew don't fuck with him."

    "Damn."

    "Casper a legend 'round these parts."
