Augustus loved travelling to a far away district like Ten, because it offered him the chance to see life in a completely different prospective than he was used to, and he often found himself preferring those Districts over his own, District Two. At least in the more Industrial and Rural districts, most people within a five mile radius didn't want to chop your head off with a huge, intimidating axe that looked as though it was staring at you, even if it didn't have any eyes. No, most people in the lower Districts were nice, and in Ten, they had lots of animals.
People were giving Augustus strange looks on the bus, but he didn't mind. Just because they hadn't seen a fifteen-year-old boy sit on the bus snuggling into his kitty and making sure one space next to him was left empty so that his imaginary friend could sit there before, didn't mean it was weird. But he was grateful to get away from the stares when it looked like his stop was approaching. Suddenly, though, the bus screeched to a sudden stop, and Augustus found himself thrown slightly forward, having not had any empty hands to grab hold of a bar.
Augustus scrambled off of the bus, pushing past the driver, and saw another kitty in the road. Thankfully, the bus had stopped before it was hit. Augustus bent down and surveyed it's collar, reading Honor's name and address. He would take him back to his probably worried owner if it killed him!
Augustus picked Honor up in one arm and held Joey in the other and began wondering around aimlessly, trying to find the address on the collar. Eventually, his legs grew tired, so he began to yell out. "I found Honor! I found Honor!" In the hope that his owner was nearby and would hear Augustus.
