life Story Too Words

Child: Story #07

The bus full of passengers was moving at its own speed.  People were happy knowing that we would all reach our respective destinations at the right time.  Things are natural and way smoother according to common opinion.  The bus had to cover a distance of about twenty five kilometres.  The twenty-kilometer route was like an L, with one in both sections and the other a bridge respectively for the course of the river.  When the bus was about to start passing through those two routes, the driver's mobile started ringing and it was reported that 'one of the two bridges has broken due to which the road is closed'.  The driver of the vehicle has several routes to know.  The river flowing under the two roads forms a right angled triangle with the roads.  A kutcha road some before the river meets the same L-like road before one bridge and after the second bridge.  The driver decided to proceed through the same unpaved route.  The road was rough due to which the bus was shaking as it moved.
A child stood at front door of the bus. A small child, five to six years old, thin and weak body. Despite this, there was a deep expression of confidence on his face, which had forgotten any trouble. The bus stopped at one place and the child got down from the bus and climbed with confidence. His mother was looking outside carelessly with the child sitting in the bus. Anticipating any imminent danger as the bus hesitated and the child stood at the door of the bus, a woman sitting in the bus said to the child, 'Where is it standing there? Come in and sit properly.' The child just stood there. The driver had ignored even seeing it. He was driving with all his engrossment. A car going in front suddenly stopped. The driver immediately applied the brakes. All the passengers sitting in the bus suddenly leaned forward. The child shook a little, but stood there.
The bus was about to stop at the bus stand, the child's mother got up in a panic and reached the door and signaled the child to get down. The child jumped off. He turned upside down. Luckily, it was just too slow. The driver said 'wait for a while' but ignoring the advice of the driver, both got down. It was a good coincidence and experience, mother and child completed their journey safely.
