As i reached my destination, I told the conductor that i have reached my destination. As i came down from the bus, All of a sudden i was hearing thief ooo, thief oooh, thief oooh, I was afraid, i thought the thief was behind me, i started running for my dear life, as i turned back, I saw crowd of people chasing me, Then i have to stop running (I Was Very Confused). I don’t even understand what was happening, Before you know it plank have started landing on my body with slaps.
I was asking my offence, they said am a thief. I started shouting am innocent, I saw the Lady whom i was playing with her baby on the bus saying that i stole her money. The beating was so severe that i lost my voice.
All of a suden i saw group of people coming with Fuel, i managed with my last strength and shouted “AM INNOCENT, I DIDN’T STEAL ANY MONEY”. After shouting that i became uncousious.
I wakeup and saw myself at the hospital; A good samaritan came to my Aid, Probably the “Driver”. He narrated to me that the lady found the money hidden in her purse. I was very bittered. I saw the lady and some of the passengers pleading with me inside the hospital. I was really mad at them. Although i forgived But I won’t forget.
The wound is getting freshier on my memory every September. Am a living Testimony. I would have been dead today. Grace saved me.
