I was never a fan of roadside lifts-but I wouldn't mind

I was never a fan of roadside lifts, but it was totally okay if one creeps up on me.

Today, started out, I came out to go to work. Standing at the junction waiting for one of the commercials, as usual, they take a lot of time to come along, the ones passing were already filled with people.

I couldn’t come out of my house early only for me to get to work late because I was waiting for a the rickshaws.
In frustration, I flagged down a corolla, the confused driver stopped, he had three kids behind, the oldest should be about ten or so. By their uniforms, I could tell their school, thankfully along the road to work.
I opened and joined them, ‘I’ll stop on the way, Sir. Good morning.’
He replied, I tried greeting the kids and the oldest threw her face away. Yes, she was pretty and so what?
The man drove off.
I looked at his face from the corner of my eyes, I saw something like confusion.
The oldest girl the man called Sunia, kept making statements mentioning Dad and referring to her mom.
And it struck me.
‘Sunia, oh dear. Do not worry. I don’t like your Dad. And I’m not like that. I am only a young girl that needs a lift. You’ll see, we’ll not even get on first name acquaintanceship or exchange phone numbers. In a matter of minutes, you’ll have your Dad to your self, cutie.’
The man laughed and said, ‘Sunia, don’t be rude. Apologize to her.’
She mumbled a sorry and the man apologised on her behalf.
Getting to their school gate, he said, ‘I could drop you off at…?’
‘Dad!’ Sunia screamed.
‘uh, she’s just nine.’ he added.
I got down from the car, ‘A promise is a promise, I don’t go back on my words.’ I smiled boisterously at Sunia.
He slipped his business card in my hands and I closed the door.
‘have a good day at school, Sunia. And if anyone looks for your troubles, pretend they are me and hit them like you would hit me.’
I walked away to the bus station, without looking back. It would be easier finding a commercial from here.
Well, not forgetting to put the business card into my bag, I looked at my wrist watch, I got only ten minutes left, and I’m definitely going to be late for work.
