Once in awhile a random stranger comes by in your life and...
…Suprises you with their honest kindness and caring.
Sometimes people help you because you dropped something, they say ‘are you alright?’ when you’re having a crappy day, or they just help you with your groceries ect…
I have met some good samaritans in my life, but there is one that will be forever in my mind…
I was around 19, I was stranded, late at night in a farmer like village. There was a long road that I had to walk before I could reach civilisation.
It was pitch black. There were only dimmed lights near the road.
I didn’t want to wake up my friend who I just visited so I decided to suck my fear up and just cross that road.
I couldn’t see shit, I knew I was an easy target for rapist or murderers because it was late at night, the village was deserted, and everybody was asleep so nobody would possibly hear me. But I kept walking.
Then I saw a scooter coming way, and to be honest, I was afraid that person would hastle me, so I just stared straight ahead and kept walking.
Luckily, the guy drove by without harrasing me.
About 3 minutes later I heard another scooter, tho this time it came from behind me. I had my guards up and hoped that he would ignore me. When he passed by I noticed that it was the same scooter.
Oh shit, i thought. All sorts of things went through my head. But, most of it was out of fear. I was all alone, on a long ass road where there weren’t houses and the street lights weren’t lit and everybody was fast asleep.
Finally, I had crossed the scary road and stood by a lot of houses, with plenty of lights. It took me 15 minutes to get there, but 15 minutes are hella long when you’re scared.
But there he was. The man on the scooter. He came my way, I grabbed my phone, pretending to call.
He stopped infront of me and the man asked ‘are you alright? Are you waiting for someone?’ I said ‘yeah, my dad will pick me up’ I lied. I was waiting for a cab.
I didn’t know what to think of the guy, until he said ‘do you want me to bring you to a more local spot? Or wait until he’s here? I’m asking because I’m worried about your safety’
I was like ‘…’
He continued ‘it’s such a closed place here, and I saw u walking by yourself… You hear so many horrible stuff about girls getting raped and murdered… I didn’t want to open the papers and see a picture of you with the headlines “missing” while I had seen you and not even offered help or protected you’
My fear was gone, I smiled and I actually felt safe. He was genuine. I could tell he meant well, and he actually stayed with me until my cab came. We just chatted about his famile, my family, this village.
It was weird, but he really suprised me with his kindness.
There are a lot of these people out there, but not enough unfortunatly.
But yeah, he wanted to make sure that I was safe that night. He gave me hope in that not all people will turn their cheek. And I did feel safe cuz damn! That place was scary! Especially at night.
True story, ya’ll!
This is actually a story that only my mom knows :) so i’m being very personal haha.

What are the odds aye?
It’s my dads birthday but also my biological dads birthday.
Isn’t that freaky?
I Wish both my dads a happy birthday :)
And everytime it’s the 7th or the 14th, I wonder if they think of me a little, my biological parents that is…
It’s weird to be adopted, the things that come with it. People don’t realize that being adopted isn’t a walk in the park either, however it did save my life.
To answer your other questions :P I’m good, been very busy but good haha. How haver you been?? I haven’t seen you on tumblr for a long time :(
And also, I don’t know Tamil language, neither do i know Sinhalese sadly :( I don’t think i would learn Tamil from my biological parents because they’re Sinhalese, so i would’ve been taught that language. But unfortunatly, I can’t speak my mother tongue :*(
