Guardian angel

This happened at the end of November 2004. Then I just got a passport, and my friends and I were going to celebrate the New year in “warm lands”. The choice fell on Thailand. Previously, trips there were not as common as now, and for us it seemed a real exotic. We have already chosen a tour, the money was saved. I remember that we agreed to meet at three o’clock in the afternoon near the travel Agency and finally pay for the trip. I was late, I couldn’t get ready for a long time, which is not typical of me. I was just opening the front door when the phone rang. When I picked up the phone, I heard a strangely familiar voice. He said:

“You can’t go there. Stay. Or there will be an accident.”

Then there was just silence, and I didn’t get any beeps. After I hung up, I remembered for a long time how I knew that voice. And when I realized who it belonged to, my skin crawled. It was my own voice.
There were long explanations with friends, as a result of which, I became the happy owner of such epithets as” abnormal “and”crazy”.As a result, they flew to Sunny Thailand, and I started drinking Valerian, just in case, because I already believed a little in my abnormality.On December 26, 2004, Thailand was hit by a massive tsunami. And I spent the first days of the New year at the airport, meeting cargo.…Elapsed time. Last year, I met a wonderful man. And after 10 months of our relationship, he proposed to me. I, as a decent young lady, said that I would think about it. I was a little afraid of family life, obligations,” We “instead of”I”.

I went to Kiev to think. I have a friend who lives there. And here is how the on the evening we with it were walking on Khreshchatyk, she ran in salon ties top up expense, and I remained on the street. My cell phone rang, the number is hidden on the screen, I hate when someone classifies their number, but I still answer.

“Don’t doubt it – I hear my own voice on the phone – it’s Better not to find… Congratulations.”

I stood dumbfounded, in the center of a strange city and smiled stupidly. And then, when I told my friend about what had happened, she was not even surprised and answered in a simple way:

“So it was your guardian angel who called you.”

And really, I think, how else, in the 21st century, can a Guardian angel communicate with his ward? Why not over the phone?..
