Break a Leg
In the D. Jose station platform, the next train was approaching. When the train doors opened, the train car was full, but this certain girl insisted herself inside but couldn't do so. After a few seconds, the warning buzzer activated and the train door started closing. Since she cannot get her self in, she stepped back. When she stepped back, her right foot got caught and was trapped between the platform edge and the side of the train.
Since I was the closest person to her, I held her back to prevent her further fall. I yelled at the guard to stop the train. I gently pulled her back to untangle her trapped leg. In a matter of a split second, suddenly, everyone was trying to help including the guards. Realizing that she's already safe, I quietly stepped back and allowed the people to do the rest of the rescue.
She probably won't remember me. I probably won't remember her either. I just felt really happy that nothing bad happened to her and that I did what I could.
You know, looking back, I realized that maybe angels are not those mythical naked babies with wings. Maybe, angels are those special kindness in our hearts that do not expect anything in return.
