My Grateful Student
This afternoon, my family decided to drop by at Evia city to walk leisurely after having lunch. I just loved the sunny weather with invigorating fresh air. A group of ladies sat next to our table while I and my family were having snacks .As soon as I finished my milk shake, I went inside the mall to buy my favorite cupcake at Baby Cakes. I was told by the cashier that she did not have loose change for my paper bill. I almost turned my bag upside down in search for coins. Little did I know that my goodies have been paid by my former student.
“ Miss, your goodies have been paid” , the cashier told me.
I felt someone patted my shoulder. When I turned, a girl in her mid twenties flashed a beautiful smile at me.
“ hey…” I said ; and I smiled back while trying to recall who this girl with a familiar face was.
“ hi , ma’am!”
I realized she was my former fifth grade pupil.
“Ma’am, when I was your pupil you used to share your packed sandwich to me whenever I did not have baon. Now , I am just returning your kindness to me”. She said.
Wow! I was not expecting that my little gesture would be something unforgettable to her.
We headed out of the mall and walked outside. I chanced upon a fancy accessory at the bazaar. I bought it for her as a memento.
In the picture were red velvet crinkles, salted caramel and cookies & cream cupcakes.
It was a great Saturday, indeed.
