Not right


   - If you wouldn't have done this I would have left you. You would have remained alone. Miserable and alone. But you finally did the right thing in your life. Well done, George! And she looked at him quite satisfied as the radio went on with the news. Some train had derailed not far from their farm.
   - Look, George! There's a man on the side of the road waving towards us. Pull over! George complied and hit the brakes. There was a man who looked like he had been travelling for months, carrying a beard, torn sneakers and dusty clothes. Especially his shirt had lost its color.
   - Good morning! Can you take me to the next city, please?
   - Sure! It's not far. Just put your backpack in the trunk, said the woman in a mild voice. And the man obeyed, so soon the wheels were spinning again.
   - Thank you so much! You appeared to me like a seagull to the sailors after too much time on the sea. I've been waiting for hours for a car to stop. Are you going further than the city?
   - No, just there. We're relocating there. That's why you had to squeeze yourself between all that luggage in the back. Sorry about that, had replied the man.
   - There no problem. I'm very happy as it is. Are you coming from far out?
   - No, just from a couple of minutes from where you were. We had a farm there, but it wasn't too much about it, so now we're going to try our luck in the city...
   - George, don't tell him so, intervened the woman. It's not a matter of luck, it's surely something better than what we had with the farm. It's like being reborn, seeing the world in a new way, more exciting way. You must know what I'm talking about, you're travelling like this for excitement, aren't you?
   - Well, not quite, said the man in the faded shirt. Now I'm going to a funeral, I've got a black suit in my backpack. It was an old friend, haven't talked to him since our school years and now I want to say goodbye and solve some unfinished issues. And by saying this the man turned his eyes to the view revealing to his right. The other felt that it was better to be quiet and didn't shared a word until they got to the city.
   - We'll drop you off here, near the old wooden church. Do you know your way from here?
   - Yes, thank you. And the man then took his backpack, said goodbye and took on the street to the right of the church. It was noon and he was to hurry.
