Goth Girl and Goth Boy, 3

I can't tell if Goth Girl on the Bus and Goth Boy on the Bus are back together. When I got on the bus this morning, Goth Girl was sitting cross-legged on the seat, chin in her hands, eyes closed, as she usually is. I am not impressed with someone who puts her feet on a seat in a public space, but what can you do? I did bump into her knee, but not on purpose. When you have your knee in the aisle, another person's gym bag is going to bump into it.

When Goth Boy got on the bus, she picked up her bags and moved over to the window seat so he could sit. He did, without removing his backpack. His lanyard, which is about 30" long, dropped all the way to the floor. It was the only color on him - he was wearing black jeans, a black jacket, a black hat with what appeared to be the dragon from the Welsh flag embroidered on it, but I only saw it from the side, and black tennies with white stripes. He got a haircut. It looks nice - very short.

Goth Girl was wearing a black skirt, black shirt, and a purple choker. No eye makeup today. No eye drama.

In the past, when he has sat, he has put his arm around her and they have leaned their heads together and stayed that way for the entire ride.

Today, they sat but did not touch, except for one moment when they leaned into each other and bumped. She fidgeted with her sunglasses and talked loudly about how she had been to see this amazing band on Friday and had started the mosh pit: "Dude! I didn't go to the concert to sit and be lazy!"

He twisted his hands and adjusted his earpiece. They did not hold hands when they got off the bus. But they talked to each other.

The Girl with Weird Bangs was not on the bus today.
