Three Word Wednesday - cold, depraved, powerful

This post is for Three Word Wednesday.

It was a cold dark night. The street was buzzing with people. She had turned back couple of times to look at him and their eyes had met. He was huge, dressed in jacket, sweatpants, with a black hood over his head. His face looked depraved. She felt he was following her. She was on her way to deposit money in the hospital for her mother's surgery. Her handbag contained all her hard earned money. She held her handbag closer to her and increased her pace. She slipped and fell down with a loud thud. Her handbag slipped off her hand, dropping to the pavement. People around looked at her with pity. She felt two powerful hands on her shoulders helping her to get back on her feet. "Take care, young lady." He said, handing her the handbag. The black hooded man walked away giving her a polite smile.

  8. You caught it bang on! I had this feeling while travelling in a ricky. Sometimes when they take those narrow bylanes - all fears surface up and the relief that you have landed in front of your house is a heady rush. Never bad to be cautious. Loved it.

  10. Yes, judging a person by attire is a big mistake we usually do. Good positive ending, hope her gets cured by hard earned money.
