When I came to, I didn’t know where I was. My head throbbed,and the world shuddered in time. Slowly now, up on my elbows. Streetlights. People.
“Drunks on the street in broad daylight.”
“Someone should call the police.”
“I’m not getting involved.”
Your kind round concerned face, dark hair bright eyes.
“You okay man? Looks like you hit your head.”
“M-mugged. I was mugged.”
“Well, crap. Come on. The hospital is this way.”
Years later, I see your face again, on the news.
“Need a lawyer? For you, no charge.”

It sounds like a modern day Androcles and the Lion. One never knows when an act of kindness will come back to embrace us, do we? Nicely done.
Loved your take on this one.
Very interesting & entertaining! I love how you pack a lot of meaning into few words. I wish other authors would learn to do that instead of rambling so much. Happy New Year to you and all your family! May your new year be filled with joy, peace, and prosperity!
A walk through a horrible incident that ended with help.
a very different take on the photo prompt. Well done ….
May your 2017 be filled with joyful laughter, good health and love.
Happy New Year 2017 🎉 Cheers 🍷
