She put her face in her hands and. “I got fired today, and I don’t know what I’m going to do. I have to pay for my dorm room, and I also have to pay bills.”
Not knowing what to do I sat there stuck in my mind’s memory file room looking for what to do for a minute or two. Then I started having a sudden flashback…
I remembered how Liz comforted me in the library after I had become the laughing stock of the classroom. I remembered how it felt to have someone being so supportive and caring.
...when the flashback ended I knew exactly what to do.
I slid out from the red booth seat and slid back in next to Cara. “It will be all fine. I will help you find another job. No matter what it takes.” I say to reassure her as I put my arm around her shoulder.
She sat there for a couple of seconds sniffing back tears, then she looked up at me with large green hopeful eyes. “You would do that for me?”
She had the most adorable and soft voice. Her warm breath caresses your cheek causing a warm shock roll down your back.
She wrapped her arms around my chest which barely reaching all the around. She then squeezed me like a kid would squeeze a big teddy bear during a heavy thunderstorm. “Thank you so much!”
