the effect of others part 1

now this is not a poem but more of a short story if you are expecting a poem this is not one, but please feel free to read my story. it will make you think a lot about what you do! it will also have to a 2 part story due to the fact i only get 2500 characters.


monday morning a single mother by the name of wendy awakes to start what she would believe to be an ordinary day, but this
is no ordinary story. she starts the day as if any other monday morning, wendy makes breakfast for her two children gets
them dressed and prepared for school and sees them of to the school bus. she then prepares herself for work and makes her
way to a bus stop not to far from home to catch the 802 bus. on her way she is attracted by the noise if a busker, who is
playing his old rusket guitar and sing to make ends meat. and with a simple act of kindness of a 2 dollar donation to the
busker wendy could drastically change the life of herself and 3 unsuspecting strangers. a busker a car salesman and a young teenaged
skateboarder, see if wendy gives the busker 2 dollars then she will find herself short of change and be forced to miss the
802 buss to get money out of an atm. while waiting for the next bus to arrive she decides to bye a scratch it ticket and win the 
jackpot of $750'000. and back before this was happening when wendy had giving the struggling busker 2 dollars it had inspired him to 
keep playing his music for money, otherwise he would have packed up his guitar and cuart the 802 bus to a new location. but he didn't 
and instead attracted more people to stop and listing to his music, one man in particular who fell in love with his songs was a recording
company manager and instantly offered him a recording deal and in time would go on to make great success in music. one other 
person who stayed to listen to the busker was our car salesman, who ironically did not have a car so he was on his way to catch the 802
bus also. now this man was struggling in life, he had lost his wife and kids due to the fact he did not make enough money from work.
and on top of his current situation his work had been threatening to fire him unless he made more sales and until he could make
more money he could not have his family back. but while lured by the buskers music he overheard an old couple considering on 
buying a new car to celebrate their retirement, convinced this could be a sale he persuaded the elderly couple to drive him to work
missing the 802 bus.
