Ruthie On The Road, New England II

A young, Puerto Rican man stepped out of the shadows and offered to keep me company overnight. I rolled my eyes and was just about to chew him out when he put up his hands and smiled.

Eventually, he got his friend to keep an eye on me, and then he walked down to the local Dunkin' Donuts and bought us donuts and hot coffee.

After midnight, the wind turned cold and I sure appreciated his treat!

The next morning, he bought me breakfast at the Mickey D's in the bus station and then gave me $25.00 in cash.

Then he waved goodbye as my bus pulled out and headed to Brattleboro, Vermont.
