I was riding inside a bus. It was a long ride to my home and little did I know that I had fallen asleep. In what it seemed to be a long while, I was awakened by a voice which told me to wake up. I was compelled to do so and I woke up. Right there and then I saw men who seemed to be planning something bad toward me. Strangely, they seemed unaware that I woke up and was studying their moves. At what seemed to be the precise moment in which they were about to manifest their plan on me, I shouted back at the bus driver to stop the bus. Strangely enough, those bad looking guys didn't lay a hand on me when they could do so. They helplessly watched me got off that bus. I couldn't forgot that commanding voice that delivered me from harm. If I didn't woke up immediately, I could have been taken by those group of men. I thought I was rescued by the Blessed Mother or my guardian angel. Nevertheless, I am thankful to God that he delivered me from harm's way.
