The arm of the seat digging into his side, the person sobbing next to him and the fear he was still feeling, made it difficult for Mac to get comfortable but as the journey continued the drone of the bus and its motion caused Mac to finally fall into a fitful sleep.
He was half-awake when the bus stopped twice more and more unwilling passengers were forced down the back but quickly fell back to sleep.
‘Wake up, Sleepy Head,’ said the same sneering voice as a strong flashlight was pointed straight in his eyes. ‘This is the end of the line for all of you.’
Mac felt himself being pulled upright and then shoved towards the front of the bus.
