An Angel??(8 Posts)
So I was on a train today going for my first antenatal appointment at 10 weeks pg.
A guy got on and started talking to me straight away....Initially I was scared, especially when he revealed that he had missed his stop but would continue on with me as he liked talking to me.
We talked about allsorts and I mainly listened as I was scared to say too much in case he was a madman and I upset him!!! He talked about the new baby and how my daughter would feel and how I should do certain things to make her feel good.
Anyway got to my stop scared he would chase me and he shook my hand and said "goodbye my angel" and then got on the train opposite to go back the other way.
I couldn't believe he hadn't chased me, (why would someone go 8 stops for a chat?) I decided he must be really lonely and started to replay our conversation. I suddenly realised that I hadn't even told him I was pregnant let alone where I was going. All I had said was that I had a partner and a DD, (just to scare him off incase he was on the pull) It was him who later asked how I thought DD would feel towards the new bubs..
Saying "goodbye my Angel" did strike me as wierd aswell, especially since he was a young guy from Rio de janiero.
strange but very nice i think. maybe there is such a thing
Was there anything that you were apprehensive about before this stranger started talking to you ?
Is your bump showing a weeny bit? Any obvious PG traits..hair/nails/skin etc..
Perhaps he'd been smoking the peace pipe before getting on the train hence missing it and feeling need for chat...
On the other hand..bit mysterious! Was anyone else on the train?
I'm always apprehensive about getting on a train in the middle of the day as they can empty so quickly. As it was a young lad got on with him and they both rushed to the same window together and opened it before sitting opposite one another making me think they were together.....But they wasn't and although the guy sitting next to me was speaking loudly, the other guy didn't bother to look up
Oh I'm sorry, I can't resist posting this little tale:
The Pink Dress
There was this little girl sitting by herself in the park. Everyone passed by her and never stopped to see why she looked so sad. Dressed in a worn pink dress, barefoot and dirty, the girl just sat and watched the people go by. She never tried to speak, she never said a word. Many people passed by her, but no one would stop.
The next day I decided to go back to the park in curiosity to see if the little girl would still be there. Yes, she was there, right in the very spot where she was yesterday and still with the same sad look in her eyes. Today I was to make my own move and walk over to the little girl.
For as we all know, a park full of strange people is not a place for young children to play alone.
As I got closer I could see the back of the little girl's dress, it was grotesquely shaped. I figured that was the reason people just passed by and made no effort to speak to her. Deformities are a low blow to our society and heaven forbid if you make a step toward assisting someone who is different. As I got closer the little girl lowered her eyes slightly to avoid my intent stare. As I approached her, I could see the shape of her back more clearly. She was grotesquely shaped in a humped over form. I smiled to let her know it was OK, I was there to help, to talk. I sat down beside her and opened with a simple, "Hello."
The little girl acted shocked, and stammered a "hi" after a long stare into my eyes.
I smiled and she shyly smiled back.
We talked until darkness fell and the park was completely empty. I asked the girl why she was so sad.
The little girl looked at me with a sad face and said, "Because, I'm different."
I immediately said, "That you are!" and smiled. The little girl acted even sadder and said, "I know."
"Little girl," I said, "you remind me of an angel, sweet and innocent." She looked at me and smiled then slowly she got to her feet and said "Really?"
"Yes, you're like a little Guardian Angel sent to watch over all people walking by."
She nodded her head yes, and smiled. With that she opened the back of her pink dress and allowed her wings to spread then she said "I am, I'm your Guardian Angel".
I was speechless, sure I was seeing things.
She said, "For once you thought of someone other than yourself. My job here is done".
I got to my feet and said, "Wait, why did no one stop to help an Angel?"
She looked at me, smiled and said "You're the only one that could see me" and then she was gone.
