Today has been absolutely amazing. I had a great morning, and i've been in a good mood the whole day. The most odd, fantastic and worthy thing happened me and my friend today. It actually happened an hour ago. Usually i don't like to tell people when things like this happen, because i don't want it to sound like i'm bragging. But this is such a beautiful occurrence, so i felt like i had to share it.
Me and my friend Rajan agreed to meet up and take a walk, as we usually do. As always i was late, so she arrived to the place we always meet up, before me. Rajan called me and i thought that she was calling me to tell me, to hurry up. That wasn't the case. I heard something different about her voice, she sounded nervous. All of a sudden she say " Mariama hurry up, there's this random guy standing here and talking to me". She laughed, so i thought for myself, it can't be something dangerous. I asked her, "is it someone i know", i thought maybe its an old friend who wanted to surprise me or something. But she was still acting weird and was kind of whispering on the phone. After that i went straight out to get her, i got paranoid lol. I thought maybe someone wants to hurt her or something. I hurried as fast as i could.
All of a sudden i see Rajan walking towards me, with a guy i've never seen my whole life. I was like okaaay, what is this lol. The guy introduced himself, and said he needed someone to talk to. The boy was a teenager, and looked like a normal teenager. Me and Rajan were shocked when he said that. Matter of fact, we were so shocked that we asked if it was a social experiment lol. I was like were are the cameras. It's very odd when a seventeen year old ask to speak, with random people on the street. That's why me and Rajan thought that it was a social experiment lol. Anyways he said no, and there we could sense that something was wrong, so i immediately asked him if someone did him any harm. He replied "No i just want to talk to someone". We agreed to sit down and talk to him. At the moment it still felt strange, but something told us that this guy really needs to talk. He sounded very desperate.
He began to explain what had happened. He used to live in a city far away from mine, called sundsvall. There he lived with his mom, dad and siblings. After a while he moved to hässleholm by himself. In hässleholm his life started to get messy, he hung around bad surroundings. And then he lost his apartment. Then he moved in with a friend for a while, but that didn't last long, the friend had to move. So this seventeen year old became homeless. Homeless all alone, with no family or friends by his side. Me and rajan freaked out!!!! we asked where he sleeps at night, and he replied in the nearby mosque. He said that he gets offered food and that he has a mattress to sleep on. I asked him why he didn't go home, to his family in sundsvall. He replied that he was ashamed to go home because he felt like a failure. When he said that, our hearts literally broke into thousand pieces. We felt so sorry for him.
We immediately started to encourage him to go back home. Thank god, because after a while of preaching. This boy even got eager to get home to his family. He told us about his dreams and what he did for a living. This boy has ambitions, he is so smart and mature for his age. Currently he is writing his own novel, and in the future he wanted to be a buissness man. This boy has only lived in sweden for about tre years, and he speaks fluent swedish.
The smile he had on his face after we talked to him was priceless. He lightened up and suddenly he said, you two gave me hope. He started thanking us, and then we felt bad. Because we didn't do anything beside talking to him. The boy didn't want money or anything from us besides talking. What we did was common sense, and nothing he had to thank us for. Before he left he said "Gurls i will never forget y'all, i am going home tomorrow".
I don't even know this boy, but i think that he has a bright future in front of him. Before writing this i asked for his permission. Starboy if you ever read this, know that we have faith in you. We will be there when you publish your novell. We wish you the best. Thanks for sharing your journey with us, we also appreciate it. It's a memory we can bring along our whole life.
Do good and good will come to you.
