I said I didn't love Jackson, but Josephine insisted love wasn't everything and told me to think thoroughly before making up my mind.
The taxi driver was engrossed in our conversation. It took him a while to regain his senses and asked, “Where to, miss?”
Josephine told him the address, and he immediately drawled, “Oh.” As he had been eavesdropping on our conversation earlier, I knew he must be wondering what our jobs were. Now that Josephine told him to head to MIX, he finally understood everything.
Throughout the journey, Josephine and I said nothing. She leaned back and shut her eyes to rest, but I kept meeting the driver's gaze through the rearview mirror.
I finally understood what Josephine meant when she said everyone discriminated against us in society.
It was 3 p.m. when we finally arrived at MIX. Mannie gathered us all for a briefing. Before we opened up for business, we would have to gather to hear Mannie's prep talk and various reminders.
