On The Pavement

After a harsh day, she settled on the pavement, not wanting to go further. She was surrounded with so many people but amidst the crowd she felt alone. All of a sudden a little kid popped up with balloons in his hand, asking her to buy one, she shooed him away. A few minutes later she saw the kid crying and asking for food from his mother. She yelled at him, cursed him and sent him away to sell some balloons. Minutes passed, she dragged herself to feet and decided to go after all. Hardly a few steps she had gone when a loud deafening sound behind her called her attention.

She turned to the most horrific scene of her life. An expensive car had gone out of control and jumped onto the pavement, killing the mother of the little kid. There was chaos, blood overflowing, a crying sound and a maddening crowd. Nothing of the accident was known and the police seemed disinterested in the case.

She squeezed into the crowd, held the kid from his hand and exited the mess. Light dawned onto her and she had got the mission of her life, providing for a better life for the kid at her arm. She walked with him, consoling him, assuring him, all with just one thought on her mind. “A lot happens on the pavement”, she thought and continued her new journey!
