I was walking, exploring the mall while my mom was looking at
some clothes at the department store. I walked and walked and
suddenly, many people came and it became a huge crowd. It was so
tight I couldn't move at all. I tried asking for help but my

me out of the crowd. I saw the person's face and he has short
green hair but it was covering his eyes. He looked like he has
the same age as me.
"Are you alright?" he asks.
"Not really. But suddenly pulling me like that just made it

find Mom, I thought.
I head back to the department store where my mom was talking to a
guard. When she saw me, she hurriedly hugged me and said,
"Don't do that again, Haley. I was very worried. I thought I'd
"Okay mom. But someone helped me find my way back." I replied.
"I..don't know. He didn't tell me his name."
"Okay. When you meet him sometime, I'm sure you'll be great
friends." My mother said, smiling and we went outside to take our
Even I didn't ask his name, I could still remember that green
hair of his. It's so unique and looked special. He promised....we
will meet again.
