Heavy Rain

That afternoon the sky appeared cloudy. I saw gray clouds came in layers when I took my shoes. Whereas in the morning the sun shone brightly so I dried my shoes. I tied the rope strongly. Then I said goodbye to mother to go to school.

My school was close enough. Less than 15 minutes to walk for kids in my age. 3rd grade elementary school who have to enter the class at one p.m every day.

Along the way, cold wind was blowing "Woosh ..". It's already half way when speckled water out of the sky cracks as well "tik... tik...tik.". I walk half-ran. and "Zhaashh..." heavy rain suddenly pouring down!

Oh pity me, forgot to bring umbrella. The road was began submerged. My shoes, my uniform were getting wet. I looked for shelter immediately. But there is no such a place. Oh pity me, this is so deserted road.

"Little girl, wear this plastic. And go quickly!" shouted an old man with a piece of plastic. Suddenly he covered me with the plastic. Oh I was shocked! but I had to go ahead. I could not see the man's face clearly, I could only say, "Thank you, Sir!". Soon he passed through the way. Without any protection from the rain. All I remember, he was a scavenger with a pulled wood cart.

That afternoon, heavy rain left sweet memories that will never lost from my mind. I do not know if I can meet again with him who helped me. However, every time rain comes, I will remember that day and pray may God return the favor and give him a good life.
