An Act of Kindness
For Friday Fictioneers 100-Word Challenge: 25 December 2015
Connor found his cat a little apprehensive as he was leaving for work.
“Is something the matter, Molly?“ he asked.
There was no response, just a worried stare.
Walking to the bus stop, he met somebody on a wheel chair stuck in the street.
“Battery died,” she stammered.
“Where do you live?”
“A block away on Lorena Street.”
“I can push you home.”
It was an act of kindness that saved Connor’s life. By assisting the disabled woman, he missed the out-of-control car that slammed into the bus stop that morning.
Back home, Molly could heave a sigh of relief.
