Normally after being able to save a girl, guys ask for their number. But this was different. I just said thanks while he just smiled and went on his way. I wasn't used to getting that reaction. Guys really ask for my number because I'm naturally friendly. But it was really strange, he didn't ask for anything in return. He just boarded another bus and left, while I just thanked him and went on my way. I really thought that it was an angel sent by God. I still kept thinking why would anyone try to save me? I mean, I'm not that great or anything. I'm just an ordinary person trying to be extraordinary. I someday hope to be like that angel. Someone who's able to be there when they're needed.
