A man that was on the bus came over and helped separate everyone, trying to calm people down, and eventually succeeded.
Karen: "This selfish girl scared my baby! She purposefully screamed right into his face!"
Driver: "Ma'am, was was your son underneath her seat?"
Karen: "I want this girl off the bus now!"
Driver Two: "Ma'am, please answer the question. Why wasn't your son seated?"
Karen: "He's a good kid. He can do whatever he wants."
The boy was in tears. "Mommy, I want the game."
Karen looked at Julia and yelled, "You owe my child that game now!" Then she called Julia a word that should never be used in a civilized place, especially in front of children.
Julia ignored the insult in order to try calming Mia down. She was also trying her absolute best to not explode on Karen.
The boy tried to reach for the game again and Julia had had it with him. She pushed him back, not meaning for it to be hard, but meaning for it to be a firm sign that she wanted the kid away. He fell against his mother and Julia said, "Listen here, kid. Don't you dare touch us or our game again. It's not yours!"
"You hurt my baby!" Karen yelled.
"You better be glad he's under age, ma'am, otherwise he'd be facing charges right now. Multiple attempts to steal my property, crawling underneath our legs and touching us! For an adult, that's assault! Child Protective Services would be very interested to learn you even encouraged him to all of this." Julia had had enough of this entitled duo, who had been nothing but trouble since they'd first boarded the bus. She was getting close to doing something she might regret.
At this point, Karen was screaming. "You have no right to talk to me like that! Your brat made my baby boy cry! You OWE him that game now. He deserves it! He is a good kid!"
Karen tried pushing past Julia to take the game from Mia. Julia was 5'9" and around 150 pounds and played on an all male rugby team. She was used to tackling guy bigger and stronger than she was and Mia knew that.
"Do your trick!" Mia exclaimed.
Julia's trick was that she could throw people over out of a standing position real easily. She could manipulate people's poor balance and knock them over easily. It was her standard move, but she couldn't bring herself to pull it here. Julia figured that pushing the boy was as far as she was willing to go. Luckily, Karen's wild antics brought on consequences that were both swift and sweet.
As soon as Karen had placed a hand on Julia, both of the drivers and the man who'd helped out earlier grabbed Karen, who was thrashing around, throwing punches and insults left and right. After the men had been holding her back for what seemed like an eternity, Karen finally calmed down a bit and she sat back down with her son. The calm would not last, however.
Mia was shaking and scared, but Julia had calmed her down by getting her to play the game again. Julia took her phone out and texted Mia's parents about the bus being late, but didn't tell them why.
Julia then heard Karen whispering secretly into her phone. She could overhear a bit of the call and realized this crazy woman had called the police and was giving an obviously false story about a stolen toy, child abuse, being threatened and cornered by several men, and being too scared to ask for an early drop-off. She was exaggerating everything and presenting a terribly twisted tale to the police.
