Two standees, a boy and a girl, in a not-so-crowded bus. The bus brakes suddenly. Boy lurches against Girl, once. The second time it happens, Girl slaps Boy. The angsty Boy now moves away (makes you wonder why he couldn’t have kept his distance from the beginning).  The bus brakes yet again. This time Girl loses her balance and lurches against Boy. Boy slaps Girl.
