I was carrying a bag full of books and I place it on the floor right next to my feet as soon as I get a seat.
I was in the bus.
I sat next to a guy.
I notice that he was grimacing in pain.
I look down.
I didn't stare. I just saw it from a glance.
He has his left foot bandaged.
I started to doze off, I barely sleep last night.
The bus took a quick turn.
My bag that was full of books swiftly move along...
and hit the guy's injured leg.
He yelps in pain.
I quickly pull the bag away.
I was speechless.
It was my fault.
I mean, it was my bag after all.
I look at him straight in the eye and say sorry.
I expected a scolding, a blaming sentence, anger.

He smiled. He said: "Tak apa"


Because I'd definitely throw a fit if something/someone hurt me when I'm in pain
