Blog owner note: This was sent in as a recorded voice note and I had to transcribe it. Apparently, the quarrel had started before the narrator started recording. So the words are just as said. * Rated 18*

It has been a long and tiring week and everyone is just trying to get home to their loved ones. This woman gets on the bus, there is this man sitting infront of her and he is carrying a big load. The man’s elbow mistakenly presses her breast. The woman is angry and asks if the guy wants to  kill her. The bus is yet to fill up and an exchange of words/ quarrel happens:
