An orphan boy waits for his mother at the bus stop until a woman gets off the bus and takes care of him – Story of the Day

When Alexis saw a boy sitting alone and crying at the bus stop, she decided to approach him out of concern, but she didn’t think that meeting would change her entire life.

It was around 7pm when Alexis got off the bus. It was getting darker, colder, and almost no one was around.

The woman rubbed her hands together and tightened a scarf that had come loose during the journey, before heading to a nearby cafe for a hot cup of Americano. However, when she took a few steps forward, she heard a sob behind her.

Alexis immediately turned around and saw a crying boy at the bus stop. He was dressed casually and appeared ill. She looked around the bus counter for the others, but there was no one in sight, so she decided to approach him.

“Hey kid, what are you doing here alone? Where are your parents?” she asked softly.

Alexis saw the boy’s red eyes as he looked up. He looks sad, and the bags under his eyes show he’s been crying a lot. “My father died when I was born,” he replied between sobs. “I just have my mother, and I’m looking for her. She has to come here.”

“Did she tell you what bus she took or when she’s coming?” Alex asked. “Or if you have her contact number, I can call her for you.”

“No! You can’t,” he exclaimed. “I’m not sure how long it will take. When she got sick, she entrusted me to my guardians here. She promised to come and see me soon, but she never did.”

Did he come here alone? And why did his mother leave? Plus, he looks so sick and sick! Alexis is confused. “So you and your friends came here to find your mother?” she inquired, concerned.

“No, I ran away from my foster home and came here,” the boy said, wiping tears from his eyes. “I asked them a few times when she would come. They sometimes dodged my question or the usual answer was that she would be soon. But she never showed up to see me, so I decided watch my mother by myself.”

“I see,” sighed Alexis. “Do you mind if I help you find her?”

The boy’s eyes lit up. “Is it really possible to do that?”

“Yes, I can, but first, you have to do something for me,” replied Alexis.

“I would do anything. I just want my mom back!”

“Okay, first of all, you’re going to have to wipe your tears and stop crying because your mom will be so upset to see you like this,” says Alexis. “Then you’ll have to keep me company at the cafe. I hope I’m not the only one who likes some hot chocolate and a cheese sandwich.”

The young man quickly wiped his tears and smiled. “Oh, I’d love to. But would you really help me if I did?”

“Yes,” replied Alexis, a smile on her face. “By the way, what’s your name?”

“My name is Kevin,” the boy said, smiling.

“Kevin, you have a nice name. Would you like some cookies?” Alexis commented as the two went to a nearby cafe.

While Kevin was eating, Alexis couldn’t take her eyes off him. Oh, poor soul, he really hasn’t eaten for days. I wonder if he is safe in his foster home. She considered.

Suddenly, Kevin caught her staring at him. “Why are you looking at me like that? Is there something on my face?”

“No, Kevin. I was just wondering if we should start looking for your mother tomorrow morning. You know, it’s getting cold, and you’re going to get sick if you’re outside.”

“But what if mom shows up and we’re not there to greet her?” Kevin asked curiously.

“Don’t worry, Kevin. I’ll notify the police about your mother. They’ll track her down soon. Can you give me your address so I can drop you off at your house?”

“Is not!” Kevin lifted his head from the plate, eyes wide with fear. “I won’t go there. They won’t feed me, and if I ask about my mother, they’ll beat me up. Please don’t make me go there.”

“What? Why didn’t you tell me about it before?” Alexis was shocked. “Don’t worry, I won’t send you back there. Since when has all this happened?”

“Ever since mom left them with me,” Kevin admitted sadly. “I didn’t tell you because I was afraid you would make me go there. But now that I know you well, I know you won’t send me back.”

Alexis rolled her eyes at Kevin’s comment. The boy was indeed in trouble, as she had suspected. So that night, she took him home and decided to call the police in the morning to report the incident.

While Kevin slept comfortably, Alexis sat by his bed, wondering why life had been so cruel to the boy. There was a time when she felt like keeping him with her. But the next day, she decided to do the right thing, calling the police and informing them of the whole situation.

On the basis of Kevin’s account, his guardians at the foster home were arrested, but unfortunately for Kevin, his mother is no longer alive. She was diagnosed with cancer but could not afford treatment and died a few months later.

Kevin is too young to handle the bad news, and when Alexis takes her to the doctor to make sure he’s okay following the way he’s been treated by his adoptive parents, she finds out he’s not. Doctors warned that any kind of shock was harmful to the boy. As a result, she decided not to tell him the truth about his mother.

On the other hand, Alexis also has a tragic past, being abandoned by her husband when he found out she could not conceive. When she thought about the times she had spent with Kevin, she realized that there was a reason why they met. So she decided to adopt him and start the paperwork as soon as possible.

Document verification and other formalities take about two months to complete. When Kevin moved in with her, he was always curious why she would adopt him and when his mother would return.

So every year, Alexis gives him a letter in his mother’s name, explaining that she is being treated in another country and has asked her to be his mother until she returns. She decided to keep pretending like that until Kevin was older and could handle the truth.

What can we learn from this story?

  • There’s a reason behind every time we meet. Kevin and Alexis met because they were destined to end up together.
  • When we lose something, we always get something back; Sometimes, something turns out to be more important. For Alexis, it was about having Kevin as a son.
