The hooded voice next to me said Salaam xante. Can I help you inshallah and he picked up my heavy bags of groceries and basically walked off in front of me, Bill out told me he was on his lunch break. And as I was lost, he would walk me all the way to the bus stop. He was so shy, he hardly looked at me. But at the same time, he was so polite. He was just on a mission to do a good deed. I'll wait for the bus to make sure you're okay. He said, As if I wasn't in a high street in daylight as if I was a woman
