Mom Was Right: Don't walk alone at night, or bus stop conversations like this will ensue

Girl Sitting Next to Me:
*Watching me dig in my purse* Do you have a gun?
Me:
No, this is my phone I'm clutching desperately. I'm waiting for a call.
Girl Sitting Next to Me:
How old are you? You look really young.
Me:
23, and thanks I guess?
Girl Sitting Next to Me:
It's cute. Do you wanna kick it with me? (Here's where I should have probably taken the cue to leave... or understood what she was hinting at.)
Me:
Sure. We're already sitting next to each other, talking, both waiting for busses. (Just a small town girl living in an innocent world.)
Girl Sitting Next to Me:
Cool. You don't find cute bi girls that often.
Me:
Uh... I'm not.
Girl Sitting Next to Me:
Me neither, but you're still cute. Do you have a boyfriend?
Me:
(So earnest!) No.
Girl Sitting Next to Me:
You should kick it with my brother. He'd like you. He's sitting on the other side of you. (Here's where I notice that a man has suddenly seated himself inches away from me.)
Me:
No thanks. I don't want a boyfriend. *Scurry away to the bus stop outside the piano bar, where the only people I'll run into are drunk, lost, college girls.*
