Buggy was a VW (Volkswagen) Beetle Car, one of the new designs, painted shiny green with a silver and white stripe down each side. Buggy had two drivers. He was bought by Mrs Scrag but was mostly driven around by her son, Wayne. Wayne always took Buggy to the beachfront and parked him there in the hot sun where he could hear the waves rhythmically washing the sand. He had roof-racks to carry Wayne’s surfboard to the beach.
Sometimes, after much arguing with her son, Mrs Scrag managed to get to drive Buggy to the shops. In the evenings, Wayne would take him to his night-time job where he worked as a waiter. He enjoyed that because he came to know the other cars parked in the shopping mall. He watched the people walking in and out of the shopping centre and wondered what they did and what they were like. He felt a little lonely sometimes in his silent world. He wished he was human. He also didn’t really enjoy the way Wayne drove him. Sometimes Wayne was drunk and drove recklessly, pulling hard on the gear lever, pushing hard on the accelerator and yanking the steering wheel. Buggy felt pushed to capacity during these times. He concentrated so hard on keeping on the road so he wouldn’t crash. He also hated the loud music that Wayne played on his CD player. It rumbled through his engine and gave him an aching radiator. But he put up with it as best he could because he loved Mrs Scrag and wanted to keep her son safe.
