Good deeds

Start 0755

There was a ____ in emergency that was waiting for his shuttle to arrive. Apparently he had been there for seven hours and couldn’t walk very well. He was also too shy to ask the nurses for food.

He came to ask me a question and his stomach growled. Embarrassed, he told me he hadn’t eaten all day. I had a dollar in my pocket and asked him what he wanted. “A bag of chips” was all I got.

I ran to the nearest vending machine and came back as he began to board the shuttle. With his hand gripped to the door to close it. I placed the bag of chips gingerly above it.

The look on his face was priceless.

End 0757
