One Paragraph Story – Old Man in Angkot

An injured old man in angkot

           I met an injured old man incidentally in angkot when I was going home to Soreang. He wore simple and worn clothes. He looked like covered his tired and pain behind his smile when he looked at me, the one who sat next to him, while some of the passenger was trying to glance to his injured foot. A few minutes later, a man who sat front of me asked to the old man about his injured feet. The old man answered that he was a construction worker until he got a work accident two weeks ago, a fallen rock broke his feet and he would go to the hospital on that day. That story made some of us felt compassion and gave him a few rupiahs at least for his fare. Finally, I came out from angkot and he thanked me again for the fare that I gave.
