A conversation with the taxi driver
"What's with that photo?"
Stephanie looked at the photo with a sad face.
"I-I won't force you to tell me if you don't want to, obviously!" stuttered Kevin
"No, it's ok. That is the last photo I took with my dad... Shortly after that he committed suicide."
Kevin was petrified. He wasn't expecting that the photo would have such a sad story. He didn't know what to say... The next words came from his mouth without him even realizing:
"And why is it cut?"
Stephanie remained silent. After a few seconds Kevin realized how rude he was.
"Um-" he was interrupted
"Hahaha you really have no shame huh?" laughed Stephanie
Kevin was red as a beet. He tried to apologize but Stephanie calmed him saying that it's ok, and that he finds it funny how hopeless he is.
After that, the atmosphere in the car changed. They both had a nice conversation, with nothing interfering. But there was still a problem. The ride was coming to an end.
"Ok I still have a few more minutes until we arrive at the destination. I have to ask her for her... phone number! But how do I do that?"
Instinctively, Kevin looked at the pair of dice. It showed a 4 and 1.
"Not good enough..."
"Hey! Are you even listening? Said Stephanie"
"Sure, sure! You were talking about your high-school life!"
"No, that was 10 minutes ago. Seriously, are you ignoring me? I asked you if your destination is on the left side of the road or the right side."
Kevin smile disappeared as he told her that it was on the right.
"I knew it..." said Stephanie
But Kevin didn't hear her. He was mustering the courage to ask her her phone number.
"I don't have much time... let's see.. the pair of dice? Bad luck. Let's look around the car... I might find something... no, there is no time. I have to do this now! But maybe I can just get the licence plate number when I exit the car and after that find more about... What am I even thinking, that's too creepy! There is no other choice... is do or die right now!"
The word "Die" echoed into his mind...
"Oh that's right. Why I even came here... to this destination... is to... meaning that it doesn't matter anymore... even if I get her phone number... It won't help me if I kill myself..."
