I couldn't sleep, so I went out for a late-night walk around town. When I got to the bridge, I stopped to look out at the bright lights in the city.
Suddenly, a woman came up to me and gave me a hug. Not wanting to be rude, I hugged her back as we both looked off in the distance. I'm not sure why, but she began to move her hand lower down my back. I tried to hint that she was making this even more awkward than it already was by moving my arm up, almost to her neck, but she continued to move her arm down.
I tried to show that I wasn't interested in whatever she was wanted by talking to her, but she didn't respond, and we just kept looking in the distance. Despite the blatant awkwardness of the situation, I kept holding her. Something about it just felt right.
We looked at the skyline for about a minute before she pushed me aside and ran off. I'll never forget her. She made me remember just how much a random act of kindness can help one's mood.
Now, where did I leave my wallet?
