Ticket to Ride
An Ivor Production

Your 13 year old son Mason had a best friend, Jason, who is about  a year and a half older than him and used to live a few doors away.

Some months ago Jason and his family moved away to a town a couple of hundred miles away. Mason was desolate when Jason moved and still seems to be suffering now. You know they talk and email and Skype, but Mon tells you this is not the same as being able to see and be with Jason. From your occasional conversations with Jason's father you gather he feels the same.

You suspect their relationship may have a sexual element as neither boy has ever shown any interest in girls. But it wouldn't worry you if Mason was gay but you have never had that conversation with him, preferring to wait for him to say something.

In the last week or so you have started to feel that something is going on as Mason has been unduly secretive and has shut down conversations with Jason whenever you appear.

You are a bus driver and today as you drive past the station you see Mason with Jason and evidently about to buy a ticket. Both have cases so it seems they are going somewhere.

You have a bus fairly full with passengers, so what can you do?

Can you dig it?

Easy.. He's 13.. I'm stopping the bus and making both boys get on my bus in the back... After I'm done with the route I will get to the bottom of whatever is going on

Can you dig it?


I agree with Skater, though probably NOT via their respective bottoms.


Ditto skater

Ditto Skater.

In the circumstances there is no other option.


The other riders can live with it. I'm picking the kids up. I'm sure they'll not be happy, but I'm also sure they're not going to want to cause a scene.

A couple of hundred miles is a hard distance, but it's not insurmountable. For now, with summer starting, will arrange for the boys to visit with each other. Once they have some time together and have calmed down a bit, we can have a serious discussion about why running away doesn't work out well.

"In the end, it's just a story. But if you ask me, it's all true."


Yep . An unscheduled stop may be but the only way. Later we can chat. Slightly surprised we didnt organise visitation already if its already been a few months. At first though I have to tell them making house together at their age is not an option if that was the plan

Joining the consensus.

Cleverly disguised as a responsible adult.
