One day I went to Bandung with my friend for vacation. We went there on a bus. When we arrived in Cianjur, the bus stopped for a rest. I got off the bus to get a cup of coffee, but my friend didn’t. Then I went to a mosque to pray. It took only a few minutes to pray, but when I came out again the bus was not there. I had gone! Shocked and confused. I asked the shopkeeper about the bus. She said that the bus had departed about five minutes ago.
I tried to call my friend on my cell phone, but the battery was running low. I couldn’t do anything but hope and pray. After several minutes, my wish came true. The bus came back! I got on the bus and walked to my seat. I was so ashamed when everybody on the bus looked at me. I could feel my face turned red.
I asked my friend why she didn’t tell the driver that I was still outside.
“I did, I told him several times that you were outside, but he said that you were in the bus toilet because he saw a man going into the toilet,” my friend replied, laughing. The other passangers smiled at me. I was so embarassed.
