DP Daily Prompt: Sorry I’m Busy Post by Ranu

It happened a long time ago. I was in school,the bell was rung. I was preparing to go and join the students of my school for prayer. I was barely out of the classroom door,when I noticed a frantic classmate of mine trying to wave out to me. I stopped for a fleeting moment. I was told she could not do her homework,will I help her.

I was torn between helping her or leave for prayer,I chose the latter. I excused myself by saying,’Naseem I’m sorry,I’m busy’. I left without explaining myself.

I felt terrible. Later that day,she told me she was punished and decided I can no longer be her friend. You see for me  what’s more important to join the prayer or help her.I chose the latter. I ended up losing a friend.

  1. Dear Ranu,

    Thank you for this.

    This is a somewhat sad story, in that you lost a friend. I imagine that you were doing what you believed to be the most important thing.

    All good wishes,

    robert
