Earlier this evening a young boy of about 9 tried to sell me roses which I didn't want... he told me only 20 pounds madame, I told him I didn't want them but I would give him something... I gave him 50LE and I thought he was going to kiss me. I walked away into a shop only to find him waiting for me outside and he had taken a rose and wrapped it in some foil and found a pin to attach it to me.

Later I was waiting to cross the road and I just couldn't seem to get into the flow of traffic, I felt a hand in mine and there was my boy who took my hand and crossed the road with me.

:love:

Excuse me for being cynical but he probably would have cursed you if you didn't give him any money :rolleyes:

Don't spoil it for me... I was touched, the boy came to find me with the rose and later on when he took me across the road I hadn't even seen him.

I am looking for positives in everything today...

When I read the head of the thread, the one you see when you roll over the title, I thought that the story ends at the first line but reading through made me thrilled. :love: :love:
