Write a story that begins with: 'I got down from the bus lost in my thoughts when...'
 
I got down from the bus lost in my thoughts when I missed a step. The next thing I knew was that I was lying flat on my face on a busy road with crowds of people milling all around me.

I was so stunned that I didn't react for a while. I came back to myself when a voice said, 'Aren't you planning to get up for today?' A hand reached out and pulled me up. I got up shakily and looked up to see this handsome man in front of me. Oh, my goodness, did I have to fall flat in front of him?

The handsome young man said that he was Victor and he offered to get me a drink as I still looked rather shaken. I accepted in a dazed manner. What was I thinking of? I was accepting a drink from a stranger! He got me a packet of sugarcane juice and the chilled drink helped me to shake off my confusion. I thanked him gratefully. I told him that I was late for my extra classes and had to rush off.

The next day, I followed my usual routine of school activities and household chores. After that, I got ready to go for my accounts tuition in the city centre. I wasn't looking forward to it as I was rather weak in this subject. The idea of spending more time on the same topic didn't appeal to me. Furthermore, my friends said that a new tutor was coming in, a man who was known to be very strict and fussy. Who needed a fussy tutor?

I made it on time for my accounts class and sat down in the back row. I usually preferred to sit at the back of classes as I didn't want the teachers to be calling on me to answer questions. Teachers should ask the students who knew the answers and not plague students who didn't!

When the tutor entered the class, I had the shock of my life! It was the handsome stranger from two days ago. I was quite stunned. I managed to sit through the class and could not wait to get away. I think my face was red from sheer embarrassment.

The next day, I encountered the tutor right at the entrance of the class. He teasingly asked me if I was going to fall at his feet again! I told him, 'Not likely!' and went to my usual place in class. The good part of this relationship is that I really paid attention in class and I ended up doing very well in accounts. I actually got a distinction for the subject. Victor and I have become good friends and I am glad that my little misstep has brought me a good friend.
