It was pouring rain. I was lying on the ground full of pile of fall leaves. They were in different colors. Red, brown, orange, and yellow. The harvest colors. But I was cold and frightened. I was confused. My hair was wet and I have nowhere to go.
I looked to my left, but all I found was more forest-like ravine. I looked to my right, the same thing. “Hello!” I screamed at the top of my lungs, “can anyone hear me? I’m scared!” But my shaking voice did not grab anyone’s attention. I spend two whole rainy days and nights in the same ravine. I’m hungry and I felt like I was never going to get out of here. I looked up to the hill to see if there was a road near by. But the hills were too deep to climb. I started to cry. Despite the fact that the rain blend in with my unstoppable tears. I cried out loud to see if anyone could hear me. Anyone! But my cries go unheard.
I prayed to God to send someone to rescue me. I prayed that I’m scared and don’t know what to do. Suddenly, a man appeared to me. I was shivering and he put a cover over me.
“I will get you out of here.” he said to me, “but I want you to trust me.”
Trust him? I don’t even know him. How can I trust a man I never even met. But he looked like an angel. Beautiful and masculine. I can see in his green eyes that I should trust him. Also, something inside me told me he really did want to rescue me. He smiled at me and my heart beats fast.
“Are you an angel?” I asked him.
“If you want to call me that.” he replied.
The rain was pouring stronger. And he saw my eyes watering again. He gently wiped the tears from my eyes.
“How can you rescue me? When we are trapped here in this awful place.” I cried.
“We will get out of here. You just have to have faith in me. Have faith in God. For he brought us together.”
Then he started to hold my hands and cry. I couldn’t tell because of the rain. But then that was when we embraced each other. To hug one another. We did not let go. He took my hand and ever let go. We walked and walked until we reached to the road. We were finally rescued by a park ranger. What was so interesting was that we did not walked up to the steep hill. But we walked to the other side. And it only took about three miles to get to the top as the steep hill decreased. This man not once released my hand.
“I told you I would get you out of the ravine.” he said to me. I smiled and he kissed me on the lips. I felt the love from this man. God really sent me an angel.
