|Jade has an accident while out shopping, and a handsome stranger comes to her rescue. She is convinced she will never see him again, or will she?|
Jade tripped over as she was walking home from the shops. She managed to get up, but as she went to retrieve her goods, she heard: ‘Want a hand, love?' She turned to see who it was that had spoken. Wow, was he good-looking? ‘No, you are all right,' she replied. ‘I've managed to pick most of my stuff up.' ‘OK,' then. As long as you are OK.' She was till she saw him. Then, as he began to walk away, she did the first thing that came into her head - faint. That soon got him running back towards her. Then, she could feel herself being lifted up. She certainly wasn't complaining. But the next thing she knew, he had placed her in his car. She was beginning to think she was being kidnapped by this handsome stranger. ‘What's happening? Where are you taking me?' she said after pretending to wake up. He never answered, but he didn't have to as she started to notice that the car was driving towards the hospital entrance. ‘I'm getting you checked out. I'm taking no chances,' he said to her. She stopped worrying. She was being taken inside the hospital with this handsome stranger, and as far as he was concerned, she had passed out. All she had to do now was keep up the pretence. She was getting away with it so far and she knew it. Once inside the casualty department, they had to wait for ages for a doctor to come and take a look at her. He was by her side, sitting and waiting. He even bought her a cup of coffee. She was loving every minute of this. Then she realised something after reaching into her back pocket. ‘My phone,' she said. ‘I must have dropped it in your car. Go and have a look for me,' she said to him. ‘No need. Here it is,' he replied, handing her the phone. Was she glad? Her whole life was on that phone. There wasn't much she didn't use it for, even paying bills and getting her tickets to go on the bus with. She just wished she had his number in it. Come to think of it, she didn't even know his name. Once out of casualty, he gave her a lift home. When they arrived at her house, she got out of the car and that was it. She thought that he might have asked her out but he didn't. Jade felt sad. She had an idea that she would not see him again. He probably had a girlfriend anyway. The next day Jade was back at work. When her break came, she told her friend Natalie all about the day before and how a handsome stranger whisked her off to the casualty department of the local hospital after she had had a fall. ‘Didn't get his mobile number by any chance?' Natalie asked. ‘I didn't even get his name. It's a bit like something out of a fairytale, but does he turn out to be my Prince Charming?' ‘Do you know anything about him, Jade?' ‘Nothing. I'll probably never see him again.' ‘You don't know, babe. Maybe fate will give you a helping hand.' The weeks went by and the memory of the accident and her knight in shining armour was beginning to fade. She had other things on her mind - Liam. He had just started at the shop she worked, and he had asked her out. OK, maybe he was a bit on the short side and had acne, but he was so sweet. He wouldn't hurt a fly and he would do anything for anyone. Click here to read the rest of this story (67 more lines)
