**bobpursley**, Thursday, January 27, 2011 at 3:56pma is the only thing inferred here: Fred is returning "home", and old friends.

You cannot assume Fred nor Greta knew each other, nor even knew each other were on the bus.

Now it would be nice if Fred and Greta were a couple, that would give Greta an out with her old boyfriend, but it doesn't say that. Nor does it say Fred is friendly, and in fact if he has been friendly with Greta. But all of that would make a nice story. Could be, Greta loves her old boyfriend, but Fred is in the way now... Such triangles we weave in our minds.
